With the annual RHS Chelsea Flower Show just around the corner, all eyes are on fancy florals (and we don’t just mean in the garden). A classic pattern for the bedroom and beyond, florals are ideal for bringing a carnival of colour to any space and come in many styles from traditional & exotic to painterly & abstract. Whichever style’s your favourite, spring is the perfect time to introduce a little floral fancy into your space, so how will you embrace the blooms?
Country Garden Kitchens
Whether it’s large or small, modern or traditional, make the hub of your home bloom this season with something extra-special. MacKenzie-Childs have taken everything we know about mundane kitchenware and splashed it with pretty posies in a plethora of colours. Making everyday cooking a joy. Like something straight out of a country garden, the Flower Market range sees hand applied floral transfers across everything from colanders and butter boxes to spoon rests and saute pans. It’s kitchenware so good you’ll want to cancel your weekend dinner reservations.
Retro Fabulous Bathrooms
The queen of retro has moved into our bathrooms and we couldn’t be happier about it. This isn’t your average floral print, Orla Kiely’s distinctive Flower Stem pattern is a pared back take on blooms. The muted colour palette of pink, green & yellow looks like it’s stepped out straight from the ‘70s, and each towel has been made from 100% super soft cotton, so they feel as good as they look. Pair with more pieces from the designer to create your own retro fabulous retreat this spring.
Pretty Painterly Bedrooms
For the sweetest of dreams, fill your bedroom with a rainbow of wildflowers. Like resting in a meadow in the height of spring, this bed linen set is adorned in a painterly pattern that sits upon a crisp white base, so it blends seamlessly into any bedroom. Made from breathable cotton, this set will keep you warm in the winter and cool as the mercury rises in the coming months. Inject a dose of feel-good design into your sleeping space with Bluebellgray. Sweet dreams are made of this.
Tropic-Al Fresco Dining
As the temperature rises we’re thinking about one thing: al fresco feasting. One of our favourite things to do in spring, whether it’s a picnic in the park or a barbecue in the back garden, al fresco entertaining is one of life’s simple pleasures. And we’ve found just the thing to make your al fresco party pop. Les Jardins de la Comtesse offers a fresh take on florals with their range of topical melamine tableware in a riot of colours. Made from crack-resistant melamine, this collection offers the look of ceramic with none of the vulnerability, so it’ll withstand any occasion. Outdoor entertaining? It’s a walk in the park.
