Remember how, in 2016, palm-leaf print was everywhere from Blake Lively’s jumpsuit to the walls of your best friend’s apartment? Well, it seems like its reign is over, courtesy of the cactus. Experts have predicted that this prickly and rather resilient plant will inspire interiors throughout 2017 – be it your linen or lighting – as it’s ideal if you’re looking to revamp your space with a bohemian touch (and don’t trust your green thumb). Here, Savoir Flair helps you incorporate the plant du jour into your home.
