We're feeling bloomin’ marvellous at Willow & Hall HQ this week, as it's the return of The Chelsea Flower Show. So as well as thinking up plant-based-puns to entertain ourselves in the office, we've also been looking into more serious stuff, like how to go about the sticky business of making florals work for you in your home. So here's our run-down of the newest interior trends taking off right now if you want to avoid the chintz and come up trumps.

Dare to go dark

Dare to go dark

Embrace the romantic and opt for de-saturated blooms offset against a dark background.

Combine with Concrete

Combine with concrete

The perfect marriage of manmade and nature, concrete perfectly complements leafy green tones.

Cactuses are cool again

Cactuses are cool

Once considered kitsch, plant-phobes can rejoice as easy-to-care-for cactuses are back in Vogue.

Clashing is OK

Clashing is OK

Don't be afraid to combine prints. Layering cushions is a great way to get the clashing effect.

Cloches are the new vase

Glass Cloches are the new Vase

Create a striking centrepiece with a modern floral arrangement contained within a glass bell jar.

Create clever accent colours

Add a floral accent

Break up boring blank surfaces with a colourful floral accent. A simple thin patterned runner transforms the look of a hall, coffee, or dining table.

Group vintage prints together

Cluster images together

Cluster prints together for an impactful piece of wall art, and opt for vintage images to juxtapose against modern white walls.

Make a statement with a mosaic

Make a statement with Mosaic

Make your bathroom or kitchen splash-back into an elegant feature wall with a stunning floral mosaic.

Be brave and go bold

Go big and bold

They say go big or go home. So why not go big in your home with oversized accessories in bright colours and bold floral prints?

Add a splash of interest to stairs

Add interest to stairs

Make your stairs into a colourful canvas by adding strips of floral wallpaper or stencil art as an interesting accent detail.

Another way you can easily incorporate florals into your home is with your furniture. Did you know that we can make any of our Willow & Hall sofa beds, sofas or armchairs with a fabric you've found? If you've got the perfect floral material that you'd love to see applied to one of our furniture styles speak to our Customer Services team on 020 8939 3800.

Best wishes,
