Decorate with summer foliage

10 images

Mark the sunny seasons ahead of us by creating rooms filled with fresh air and flowers. The uplifting look is an instant mood booster and can give any room a bright, invigorating feel. Refreshing and timeless, this energising trend can be tweaked to suit all tastes. Layer up large-print floral fabrics in a rainbow of summer foliage colours such as orange, pink, purple and fresh green to keep the look modern and sharp. For those with classic tastes, opt for an English garden approach by choosing dainty motifs and pretty pinks for classic country charm. For something a little more edgy, choose a slightly darker scheme with deeper colour tones and floral silhouettes. Whichever look you choose, decorating with summer foliage shows no sign of wilting. Welcome summer meadows to your living room with wild flowers, butterflies and bees. This stunning floral-motif sofa makes an impact with lively pattern and buttercup tones. Soft yellow painted walls and a lemon-hued rug pick up on the sunny fabric. Complete the look with insect and botanical cushions and artwork.
