5 ways to add drama with the winter floral trend

From statement walls to easy-to-change accessories, discover simple ways to make AW15's winter floral trend work for you

1. Make a statement

Be bold and commit to the winter floral trend by choosing a
large-scale design for your wallpaper. Make the print the star of the
show by keeping the rest of the room simple and pared-back, then add a
few fresh flowers for effect.

2. Opt for accents of black

Give the winter floral trend a chic feel by adding stylish black furniture. Mixing and matching a traditional wooden table and cabinet with modern Eames-style chairs adds an intimate boutique feel.

3. Add flair with fabrics
