What better way to give your home a spring update than with a stunningbotanical 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 offresh, leafy greens and delicate trailing prints,these new ways of working botanical prints are anything but twee.
Beloved by green-fingered urbanites, we predict ‘living walls’ to be the biggest indoor gardening trend of the year. Dobbies Garden Centres (opens in new tab) 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.
Literally bring the outside inand transform your home into a stylish botanical haven with Dobbies (opens in new tab)' range of living wall planters.Embracethe 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 amodular 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.
Arboretum is a fitting name for Sandberg (opens in new tab)'s latest wallpaper collection, launching this March, which features trails of gorgeous botanical foliage inspired by light and nature.
It's a mix of trailing hazel branches that brings afeeling of calmness into any space.
