8 fern-print papers to blow you away

Want something inspiring for your home for spring? Bring freshness and light into a room with one of these fabulous fern wallpapers

The natural delicate quality of ferns means they’re often more dreamy than daring when compared to other prints, blending into a scheme rather than dominating. They also work as a year-round option, mirroring the fact that many ferns are evergreen. And you don’t have to stick to subtle greens and creams if you don’t want to – there are more colourful options on the market.

How to use them
Any room is fit for a fern print. From bedrooms to hallways, living rooms and conservatories, the motif’s simplicity lends itself to any space, adding an air of classic elegance without tipping into trad-ville. Paler shades and skeletal patterns are naturally the best choice for a soft and subtle scheme, while designs with a wider variety of colours or designs, or those set against dark, dramatic backgrounds, are better suited to statement walls or spaces where you want to make an impact.
