Bringing botanical touches into your home
As soon as the Chelsea Flower Show rolls around each year, we all begin turning our attention to beautiful floral blooms and stunning leafy green foliage. It is only natural to begin focusing on outside spaces as the weather starts to warm up; however, if you do not have a garden or you are keen to blend your interior with nature, introducing botanical elements into your home is a wonderful way to embrace the calming ambience of flora and fauna.
From sweeping fields and meadows stretching for miles to leaves adorning trees that have stood for centuries, green is one of nature’s most prominent colours; therefore, it makes sense to embrace this refreshing and calming colour within your home if you really want to connect with the outdoors. You do not have to choose the most vibrant shade of green you can find, as rich forest greens or soft sage tones work equally well as a base colour to build a space upon.
Natural textures and neutral tones
A hessian rug or woven throw blankets in warm natural tones will look wonderful against green hues and botanical patterns. Adding to the comfortable atmosphere, these neutral elements will give your space a sense of balance, pulling together the overall look and giving the eye a place to rest to avoid being too overwhelmed by the details.
Introduce splashes of modernity
Choosing an armchair with a bold, graphic botanical print will ensure things still feel fresh and modern. Alternatively, a clear glass table can provide the slightly unexpected modern twist a space needs to avoid feeling overly staged and will provide the perfect surface for you to style bouquets of fresh flowers or your favourite potted houseplants.
Play with pattern
Introducing floral or leaf printed patterns into your space may sound like a cliché; however, if styled correctly, they will always enhance the relaxing atmosphere without overpowering other elements.
A few floral cushions interspersed with some more neutral options will add interest and splashes of colour. If you want to make a bit more of a statement, try mixing two or three different patterns together. Pair some bold rich green leafy cushions with a more delicate and intricate floral pattern in a lighter colour palette for an eclectic yet ultra-comfortable and inviting aesthetic.
Rather than relying on harsh overhead lighting, a few well-placed lamps with warm bulbs will often work best within space with a botanical aesthetic. The soft lighting will add to the comfortable and relaxing ambience, ensuring this space is one you will want to retreat to all year round.
