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
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
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
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
