Why we can’t get enough of the botanical trend: here’s 4 looks you’ll love

Botanical style is no longer confined to country style; with a palette of greens and tropical leaf prints being a hot trend for summer, try this look with a fresh, modern spin.

1. Striking dining room

Songyue Green T36186 wallpaper, £52 per roll, Thibaut range, Wallpaperdirect. Ingatorp dining table, £250, Ikea; Nayoko dining chairs, £199 each, Marks & Spencer;
Stockholm sideboard, £450, Next

For a contemporary take on botanicals, try furniture with a black or fresh white finish, in simple, uncomplicated shapes. Create a statemebt on the wall by hanging a series of foliage art work. Look for prints featuring Victorian-inspired illustrations, or try pressing fern leaves to mount and frame.

2. Relaxing living space

Jute cashew wallpaper, £95 per roll, Malabar; Wenge UF1000 laminate looring, £27.99 per sqm, Quickstep; Cushions made in Royal Ferns, £89 per m, GP&J Baker

Create a fresh, uncomplicated look, by contrasting white sofas with dark flooring and furniture, then introduce graphic pattern either on cushions or a rug for a subtle injection or try an upholstered armchair in a bold print for a bigger impact. Natural textures, such as jute effect wallpaper, softens the over all look.

3. Inspiring office

Ferns 839T2712 wallpaper, £60 per roll, Thibaut range, Wallpaperdirect. Besta Burs desk, £200; Hogsten chair, £80, both Ikea

Create an inspiring office space by bringing the outdoors in. Dare to be different, and go for a traditional print but try either a fresh white or a bold black back drop to the wallpaper print. Simple office furniture is ideal to let the wallpaper speak for itself.

4. Botanical bedroom

Hastings bed, £329; Jolie armchair in Woodland Fern Black, £549; Harper footstool in Woodland Fern black, £279, all Marks & Spencer. Alma coffee table, £110, Next; Eve bed linen, £29.50 for a double set, Marks & Spencer

Break up green walls with black furniture, pops of white either on the bed or accessories; then use real plants to create and indoor garden, dot them around or line up plants in pots, vases and terrariums on a shelf. To introduce botanical print, look for leaf print bed linen or upholstered furniture.
