Nature-inspired prints are this summer’s hottest interiors trend. From English ferns with their delicate fronds to exotic palms fresh from the jungle – it’s all about the foliage.
Create a statement wall
If you want to make a big impact, why not go for a leaf print wallpaper? We love these palm prints, available in a whole host of shades to suit every colour scheme. Adorn one wall and keep the others light and neutral for a look that’s dramatic without being too domineering.
Hot tip: Keep the look organic by combining leafy prints with natural materials, such as distressed wood, glass, copper and stone.
Refresh an old armchair by getting it reupholstered in a botanical print fabric. The new Secret Garden Collection from Liberty Art Fabrics Interiors offers a stunning selection inspired by Frances Hodgson’s classic tale. From rich and intricate to simple and stylised, there’s a print for all tastes.
Hot tip: If you don’t have one already, shop around your local junk shops for an old chair. As you’ll be completely covering it, you should be able to get something threadbare or shop soiled at a heavily discounted price.
Soften a minimalist bedroom with a leaf print duvet set. This bold botanical print bedding from Tommy Bahama makes a real impact with lush green palm leaves flowing over the comforter's ivory ground.
Hot tip: Prefer plain bedding? Hang a large botanical canvas print above your bed for an alternative take on the trend.
Foliage finishing touches
If wallpaper or furniture doesn't fit with your décor aesthetic, why not pick out accents with cushions and soft furnishings. Try some soft and succulent pillows like these spiral succulent decorative pillows to make a real trend talking point in your sitting or dining room.
Don’t forget the real thing…
What better way to accessorise a botanical-inspired room than with some real foliage? The Kentia Palm makes a majestic and elegant houseplant – and has the gravitas to hold its own in a roomful of attention-grabbing jungle prints.
