Whatever part of the world you happen to be in, Springtime is an opportunity to give your home a fresh new look. New growth and activity is always associated with this time of year, and this new energy is something that can be perfectly captured through an astute use of floral patterns and in-bloom inspired imagery.
Many of the top designers and fashion labels are well aware of the power of floral imprints and regularly update their lines with tributes to plant-life and flower growth. Here we present just a few ideas to get you started on a new floral look around the home.
Ted Baker is a name long associated with bringing out fresh and energetic combinations of colour and comfort. This is something that can be experienced to the max with the company’s output in their range of cushions. The beautiful Focus Bouquet Cushion (above) is a wonderful example of this, bringing together a complete cotton and feather filled combination to create a luxurious display of comfort. The floral print is bursting forth with colour and vibrancy and is the perfect symbol of a new idea in time for Spring!
The Taisha Velvet cushion, also by Ted Baker, is another cushion designed to bring a sense of floral fashion into the home. Produced in matt velvet and featuring a glorious display of exotic foliage blooming out on a pale background, the effect is both dynamic and exciting.
A fantastic floral display from Ted Baker could be beautifully rounded off with the Encyclopedia Floral Bedding. Shades of red, gold, green and white all work together to produce a fantastic montage of texture and form. Produced with 100% Cotton sateen for a gorgeous look and feel, the bedding is ideal when working in combination with other items in the range. Matching pillowcases and other cushions can help to make a memorably evocative contribution to a supremely stylish bedroom.
It is fair to say that any home looking to benefit from a floral inspired look will need to add some flowers into the home, and for that, you will need a vase. An ideal vase more than fit for showing off the new flowers of the season is this Numa Vase in Carrabean Sea blue by Villeroy and Boch. Four layers of mouth blown glass produces a superb look perfect for all your floral display needs.
A brand and design luminary long associated with the beauty and imagery of floral patterns is Orla Kiely. The stem flower mug is a great example of the designer’s ability to fuse iconic imagery with an exquisite bone china platform to make a striking household item that instantly evokes positivity and spring-like energy.
