Trend Alert: Floriography

Feminine and illustrative, this season's floriography trend is inspired by the traditional botanical studies of the Victorian era. Known as The Language of Flowers, florals held significant meanings in the late nineteenth century and were used to send secret messages. Whether you choose orchids for refined beauty or oleander for lust, the floriography trend will imbue your bedroom scheme with a vintage, classical feel that is perfect for spring and summer.

Pretty Papers

Classic botanical studies can be found in second hand books and are great for re-purposing around the home. Their illustrative quality means they work great for walls as art. You can frame pages as prints or create a decoupage wall or lampshade using cut outs. Highlight the shades of the leaves by pairing with luscious real plants and green furniture.

Ditsy Prints

Fine flower prints work great in the bedroom. Fresh and colourful, they bring a sense of natural beauty to any scheme. Achieve the look with floral bed linen or patterned cushions, or for a clean contemporary look stick to one statement throw at the end of the bed to subtly introduce your interior into spring.

Pressed Flowers

Traditional pressed flowers are seeing a stylish revival. Combining slimline frames with wild flowers and leaves you can find in your garden, these works are delicate and fresh. They show the individual anatomy of each plant and can make an unusually abstract feature to walls.

Wonderful Walls

A floriography print wallpaper is great for work spaces, conservatories and breakfast nooks - anywhere you want to appear light and airy. Choose a paper that features wild flowers, or for the crafty, stencil or stamp any floral wallpaper with Latin annotations for an authentic look.
