Leaf, floral and insect prints are making an appearance on everything form sofas to wall hangings. We have lots of ideas on how to refresh your home with a combination of zesty designs based around flora and fauna. The botanical theme is full of wonderful textures, colour and design references, from moss-green velvet sofas to cushions buzzing with bee designs, we hope we have something to inspire you.
Vintage botanical prints are a wonderful source of inspiration. Mirror the look with floral cushions or a vase decorated with botanical print.
The botanical trend walks hand in hand with a country-style theme. Decorate a bedroom or living room with a floral feature wall. Add eclectic botanical prints on the wall and layer the bed with a floral bedspread in muted pastel tones of rose pink and pale green.
In the kitchen, team a canary yellow feature wall, using it as a backdrop to an armoire or open shelving. Decorate shelves with crockery adorned with botanical prints.
Introduce a butterfly theme to a bedroom or home office. Complement a retro-style desk and chair with bee-themed accessories to shelving or a lampshadets what better theme to encourage a good work ethic than a busy bee!
Use a backdrop of exposed floorboards, a sisal rug and white walls for a botanical room theme. Introduce aged-wood furniture and team with simple vintage floral wall prints.
