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.
