Let the outdoors inspire the indoors by embracing the botanical aesthetic. The botanical aesthetic isn’t just adding house plants to your décor, gorgeous fauna and flora patterns can be found in everything from wallpaper to cushions. Why not add a lovely springtime feel to your home year round with some delightful florals and foliage.
Whether real or artificial, plants are a must-have for those wanting to adopt the botanical aesthetic. Real plants are perfect for placing in well-lit areas, so they get the light they need to thrive, and artificial plants are ideal for brightening up dark and dingy corners. Artificial flowers can also be used in this aesthetic, simply add to an elegant vase for a low maintenance way to inject a splash of botanical colour to windowsills and tables.
Wallpaper featuring bold blooms or luscious leaves is a wonderful way to add some botanical beauty to your walls. Whether you’re opting for a stunning feature wall or plastering all four, floral wallpaper is a great way to brighten up any room. If wallpaper isn’t for you, then painting is a brilliant alternative. Painting walls green is a wonderful way to enhance your other décor, or, if you’re particularly arty, you can have a go at painting plants and flowers on your walls.
Another, less drastic way, to inject some life onto your walls is to decorate them with photos and art pieces. Photos, illustrations and artwork depicting leaves, herbs, plants and more are very popular ways to create a fresh and uplifting look. Hanging floral jars are also a stylish way to add a vibrant and rustic touch to your walls.
Botanical themed fabrics are an easy way to incorporate some beautiful flora and fauna designs into your home. Stylish bedding featuring blossoming plants, vivid rugs and cosy blankets are a quick way to experiment with this horticultural aesthetic without committing to it as much as you have to with paint and wallpaper. Whether you’re opting for lush ferns or joyful flowers, inviting some earthy textiles into your décor will create a charming botanic vibe.
Add some delicate floral dinnerware to your kitchen, green lamps to your living room, cheery bunting to hallways and eclectic scatter cushions to living rooms to perfectly complete your nature-inspired look. Wooden features and wicker accessories such as tables, trays and baskets will also beautifully enhance your new décor.
Whether you want to completely transform your home, or just add a bit of nature to your décor, this gorgeous aesthetic is a wonderful way to add some life and colour into your home. Have a browse of our Home Furnishings collection for inspiration and ideas.
