How to work the botanical trend with Sainsbury’s

Give your home the green touch with Sainsbury's new Botanist collection

Tropical palms, elegant ferns and lush foliage are big news this season. The botanical trend, which remains one of the hottest looks this year, is perfect to give your home a fresh new twist.

Working the trend couldn’t be easier, thanks to Sainsbury’s. The store’s new Botanist home collection is teeming with fabulous, nature-inspired homeware and accessories.

Whether you want to add just a few leafy touches or embrace the trend at its fullest, a palette of clean, vibrant greens is at the heart of this style, with pale apple-green or sophisticated teal notes as your highlight colours. Soft furnishings are a great way to bring these fresh hues into your home.

Choose oversize foliage prints or delicate embroidery for your throws, cushions and bedlinen but also consider patterned vases and even tableware – Sainsbury’s has a wonderful range featuring stylised flowers and leaves.

Wood and metal are the go-to material for your backdrop because they add contrasting, natural textures and balance the conservatory look – think rattan baskets or sleek metal lanterns.

Echo the botanical theme across your house with lush plant displays. Greenery can become a design feature with the right arrangement, so showcase tactile plants, such as ferns or bamboo, in stylish pots with interesting patterns – or place cacti in a metallic trinket box for a twist on the classic terrarium.

Finish off the look with horticultural illustrations and framed, pressed leaves. With their Victorian palm-house feel, they help turn your home into a tropical haven.
