  • Find out how to give your home a floral makeover with Sainsbury's Home's new Flower Market collection

    Bright, bold florals instantly scream summer. They are fun, relaxed and perfect to refresh your home for the new season. This year’s look, which is all about mixing and matching ditsy and large-scale prints in vibrant colours, is particularly easy to work into your interiors – especially now that Sainsbury’s Home has launched a brilliant range, called Flower Market, which is brimming with gorgeous textiles and accessories.

    Drawing inspiration from the many flower markets that take place around the UK, the new collection has all you need to get your home ready for summer. Giving your bedroom a floral makeover, for example, is as simple as scattering cushions in mix-and-match prints over patterned bed linen in bold shades of pink and blue. Add a throw to ward off the evening chill and tie off the look with a selection of scanted jar candles.

    Patterned soft furnishings are also key to updating your living room. Combine embroidered and printed cushions with textured throws for immediate visual impact. Choose vibrant faux flowers to play up the theme across the room: arrange them in a glass jar to brighten up a corner or place individual stems in clear glass bottles, which you can then group together on a cabinet or a side table. Complete the scheme with a ceramic lantern featuring a delicate flower motif.

    Florals also have a place in the kitchen, where patterned tea towels, trays and accessories immediately add a playful note. And for the ultimate summer afternoon tea, choose floral cake plates, painterly mugs and even cake forks for a look that’s as cheerful as it is charming.
