Botanical statement walls: the fastest growing interiors trend

Create a beautiful botanical backdrop to give your walls the wow-factor. Here's how...

What better way to give your home a spring update than with a stunning botanical statement wall. It’s easier than it sounds. Shout the trend loud-and-proud with a top-to-toe botanical living wall of tumbling foliage. If your thumb isn’t green enough to keep it all growing, fake it with ferns, florals and leaf prints and patterns from the stunning new wallpaper collections. Or introduce a supersize piece of art or a mural featuring a something floral. With lots of fresh, leafy greens and delicate trailing prints, these new ways of working botanical prints are anything but twee.

Living Walls

Beloved by green-fingered urbanites, we predict ‘living walls’ to be the biggest indoor gardening trend of the year. Dobbies Garden Centres seems to think so too, with the launch of its own stack-able wall-mounted planters designed for real greenery and indoor herb gardens. Pile up, place side-by-side and sit back and watch as your very own urban jungle bursts into life.

Dobbies Living Wall Planters are £9.99 each from Dobbies. The Desser Henley Chair £525, Thelma Green Glass Vase £14.99, Silver Grey Fishbone Throw £49.99, andWhite Pillar Candle £17.99 are also all Dobbies,

Literally bring the outside in and transform your home into a stylish botanical haven with Dobbies‘ range of living wall planters. Embrace the beauty of the great outdoors with these little pockets of greenery – used for fragrant herbs in the kitchen or lush and leafy ferns in the living room.

How does it work? It’s made up of a modular framework which can be tailored to suit the size of the wall, and each living wall planter can hold three plants.

These new, clever versatile planters add instant interest and colour (and a lovely, fresh scent), for a botanical feature wall that’s blooming lovely.

Botanical wallpapers

Arboretum is a fitting name for Sandberg‘s latest wallpaper collection, launching this March, which features trails of gorgeous botanical foliage inspired by light and nature.

This is Sandberg’s Aralia 640-02

It’s a mix of  trailing hazel branches that brings a feeling of calmness into any space.

For something more moody, Sandberg’s dark green Oak 433-88 pattern is full-on forest, with a warmer and more cocooning feel.

Wall art

Surface View‘s latest edit taps into emerging talent from the UK’s top textile graduates. Chosen from the work of six up-and-coming designers, the new edit explores the contrasts between the natural world and the man-made and is available for botanical statement walls, either as large scale artworks or as feature murals. Expect bold print in XXL, from Sophie Pope’s bristly hand drawn Dancing Thistles illustration to Nicole Rowe’s ultra-colourful tropical-inspired Flutter in Paradise hummingbird print.
