  • 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

To introduce botanical print, look for leaf print bed linen or upholstered furniture.
