Ever since Pantone named Greenery as its Colour of the Year in 2017, there’s been a significant rise in the “Botanical Interiors Trend.” According to Pinterest, saves for botanical ideas have increased by 75 per cent globally in May 2018, making it one of the fastest growing home trends of 2018. The popularity of this trend stems from a back to basics call to nature and the desire bring the outdoors in especially in urban homes where outdoor space is at a premium. This trend embraces the use of refreshing and revitalizing shades and materials of the natural world to create a sense of earthiness and serenity in your home. Here are five elements that you can combine with materials such as cork, wicker, rattan, jute and wood to create an inspired botanical look.


1) Wallpaper and Art Prints

The botanical theme extends beyond just incorporating actual plants. Decorative elements such as wallpapers or art prints can really add drama and depth - especially when combined with real foliage!
