It can be as easy as a single rose stem, to a full wall mural, instantly transforming a space. A vase of flowers tells any visitor your colour and form preferences, as well as the care you take in the appearance and upkeep within your home. Finishing touches, like flowers, make your home uniquely yours.
For a classic floral scheme try opting for muted, pale colour palettes such as pinks, lilacs and creams to create a soft and cosy ambiance within your home. The floral pattern should reflect classic period gardens with prints of roses, ivy and anemones for an authentic antique appearance. Our favourites are soft dusty pink peonies for a perfect French Shabby Chic Bedroom - gentle lines, feminine colours and open blooms.
Modern interiors, on the other hand, should celebrate bright and bold colour schemes such as vibrant blues, greens and reds combined with crisp white backdrops. Contemporary floral patterns tend to be illustrated with larger, bolder flowers such as gerberas, hydrangeas and poppies for real statement style. A structural white orchid or more tropical Bird of Paradise would suit a surrounding rich in colour with standout furniture pieces, like our Branching out console table.
