With summer slipping away into autumn soon, it feels like the best garden blooms of the year are having their last burst of colour. So, how about bringing your garden flowers and flora into your home year round? Blooming marvellous!
Sowing and growing a floral inspired interior design can be a bit daunting. Is it too feminine? Can it be contemporary? What can be mixed effectively with floral patterns?
To begin with, consider what atmosphere and mood you want to create in the room. Are you aiming for bold and bright, calm and contemporary or vintage and country? Look at the light, space and function of the room, and how the design will flow with the remaining rooms of your home.
These initial considerations will help you to decide what type of internal garden you want to grow!
Quick, easy, and the basis of the room’s interior colours, accents and textures, can be a feature wall.
Floral with floral
Mix big blooms with sweet little buds? You bet…
Floral with patterns
Stripes, motifs, patterns, images – as long as there is a colour palette to tie the floral and patterns together, be brave, it can look amazing…
Key floral statement pieces
Bring floral interior design into your room with one statement piece that can stand alone and dazzle!
Or subtly indulge your passion for petals with low commitment pieces, such as ornaments, kitchenware or bedding –easy to change if you grow tired of your indoor garden and want to do some weeding!
Or, you could just have an amazing bunch of flowers in a large vase as a centre-piece: picked from your garden, of course!
