Dried fan palms.

If you're looking for something a bit bigger to make an eye catching statement or focal point in a room, fan palms are the perfect choice. Available as large spears or more delicate stems, they make the ideal pairing for a floor standing vase. Choose a tall, seagrass vase for a retro, boho feel or go clean and rustic with a stoneware piece. Or why not make the most of their size and create a display of dried palm wall art? Which tees us up for our next tip...

Dried palm wall decor.

Palm leaves make great wall displays, an effortless way to cheer up an empty wall! There are a multitude of ways to create a dried palm wall hanging, but the easiest is with a large fan palm leaf. 
Size of the palms available to you will vary depending on location. If you have any local to you that you can pick up for cheap, or nothing if you find a garden clearance, you're very lucky! Meanwhile here in the UK we can only dream of leaves as big as the one below from Renee (crushing_on_blush), this huge palm leaf instantly adds exotic, jungle vibes don't you think?

Dried palm wall arrangement.

Part of the dried palm wall decor theme, but deservedly needing a mention of it's own. A dried palm wall arrangement is for those looking to create something special in their home decor. 
Made from a mixture of palm leaves combined with other flowers and foliage, they are a striking choice for anyone with the space to create a real centrepiece.
This example below from Jordynn at kopperandknot is a beautiful example of what can be achieved with the use of dried palm leaves, dried palm spears and some exotic banksia and protea flowers.

*Hanging tip - see above dried palm wall decor, the type of wall fixing you use will depend on the size and weight of your dried palm wall arrangement.


Dried palm fronds.

Lastly here's a look at a different type of dried palm. If you're looking for an alternative to the traditional fan and spear type dried palm leaves, then the textural fronds of the date palm or sago palm are ideal. They offer a structural and elegant form, ideal for adding to a dried palm arrangement or similar exotic dried floral display. They work well in a rustic, minimal interior aesthetic, or are equally suited to an urban jungle decor style. You can just imagine tropical surroundings when you see these beautiful fronds like those pictured below from Christiana, _designdivine_, don't you think?
