decorating with botanicals
Summer has finally arrived, that favorite time of year when we spend as much time as we can outdoors. Gardens are in bloom and colorful flowers are everywhere we turn. Botanicals have long been a favorite motif for decorating indoors, and layering fabrics with blossoms and branches around the home is an easy way to bring the outdoors in.
Introduce botanicals into a room with furniture dressed up in floral fabrics. Whether upholstered or slipcovered, classic patterns of leaves, branches, and petals are always stylish!
A few scraps of wallpaper and some spray adhesive can reinvent an old wood dresser. Blend together tone on tone motifs against a large scale botanical backdrop in a common colorway.
Create big impact by using floral prints even in small doses such as framing strips of watercolor wallpaper in a triptych, the series makes impactful but inexpensive artwork.
A large scale botanical fabric in vivid color hung like café curtains hides kids’ toys or craft supplies in a cabinet and softens a space more than wood cabinet doors.
An exotic botanical applied to an upholstered headboard adds global flair to a bedroom space, use extra fabric to fashion an accent pillow as a way to repeat the pattern in the room.
Window treatments are long time favorites for use of botanical prints; use florals as roman shades or longer window panels in fabrics from traditional to modern to add colorful pattern to a dining room, bedroom, or kitchen.
