We’ve all heard of florals for spring, right? Well, I’m coining the term ‘Foliage for Fall’ as we talk about the ways to introduce this year’s hottest interiors trend for botanical prints into your homes. It’s certainly a bold look, but don’t panic, there’s a way for everyone to incorporate this trend into their schemes.
If you’re brave enough to embrace this trend in its entirety, then the best way to introduce the botanical print into your home is by using wallpaper. Wallpaper is having a bit of vogue moment right now, and with the quirky, trendy designs on offer, it’s easy to see why. There really are thousands of wallpapers on offer, but this one by Made by Lemon certainly has the wow factor.
If you love the botanical trend but don’t want to commit to redecorating, then hanging botanical prints, and artwork on your walls is a good way to go. Clustering prints together in gold frames looks very effective and is a more subtle take on the botanical trend. If you’re arty, get creative and start sketching, but if you don’t have the time or patience, there are plenty of beautiful botanical prints online to choose from.
Taking it back to its roots and where it all began, the humble houseplant has come on leaps and bounds in the last few years, with cacti and succulents having a real moment in the spotlight. Filling windowsills, balconies and side tables with leafy green foliage softens and calms an interior space, and is also a trendy interior choice. It’s especially great if you live in flats that are limited by their access to outdoor space but still love the idea of dabbling in some gardening. Patch has a selection of indoor house plants that they claim are (almost) ‘unkillable’. Another option is to create a terrarium as a focal point on a coffee table. Here are some ideas on how to make your own terrarium.
If you’ve found a fabulous foliage print that you’ve fallen in love with, how about getting it made into scatter cushions? You can find a range of sizes here, and pick any fabric of your choosing. Mixing a botanical print with deep green velvets will look spectacular and add a touch of luxury to your sofa setup.
This trend is certainly not limited to living rooms. Botanical bedding has been a popular choice for the past few months, and in darker tones, layered up with chunky blankets and velvet scatter cushions, it’s an ideal choice for the autumn/winter months. This set from H&M Home is affordable and stylish: the perfect combination.
The botanical trend is so versatile that it’s also an excellent choice for bathrooms. If you have a plain, stark white bathroom, inject some colour with botanical, leaf print towels and fill the space with potted plants. It’s a great way to update a rented space since there’s no permanent redecorating, painting or hanging things from walls.
