The botanical trend in interiors is as popular as ever as it evokes the wonders of the natural world, and reminds us of steamy rainforests, jungle vistas or even the Palm House at Kew Gardens.
The predominant colours in this trend are earth colours, vibrant greens and deep rich browns, which create a sense of calm relaxation so are perfect for living as well as bedrooms.

The starting point for this botanical moodboard was this wonderfully tropical wallpaper with its rich green foliage and cheeky colourful hand-drawn toucan motif, bringing splashes of orange, black and white into the mix. It is bold enough to use on a feature wall, and so works out surprisingly affordable as a little of this pattern goes a long way. A matching cushion on a plain sofa will unify the theme. Both available at www.antheashomestore.co.uk
A plain sofa in a plush velvet adds texture and will give the room a luxurious feel. I have chosen a forest green but a burnt orange will work equally well. A plain colour ensures that the focus of the room stays on the wonderful wallpaper!
Engineered hardwood flooring is a simple and practical option, and choose a dark wood for a rustic, “reclaimed teak” style look.
This Dar Winona ceiling uplighter in gold will add glamour and create stunning effects by diffusing the light through its overlapping leaves
This unusual coffee table cleverly combines two tactile materials: marble and wood, with a nuts and bolts inspired fixing clamping the marble between the mango wood to give a contemporary, sculptural feel to the piece.
