No matter where you look in interiors right now, nature is taking hold. Whether it’s leafy palm fronds or statement flower prints, there’s never been a better time to bring the outside in. Summer is seeing a particular trend for delicate botanical-inspired prints, interlaced with butterflies, beetles and all other manner of insect paraphernalia! Take a look at our favourite picks to transform your home into a garden getaway.

The Ava cushion from Oasis is wonderfully on trend. Featuring painted flowers, birds and butterflies, it captures the essence of an English country garden. Layer with block colours on a sofa or go all out and get the Ava bed linen collection for a bedroom that’s a peaceful paradise. If you want to add a contemporary twist to this look, try pairing with a geometric print cushion or two.

Let nature reclaim your walls with this gorgeously leafy wallpaper. The Harlequin Zapara range features a range of gorgeous nature inspired designs and we especially love the Iyanu collection. Birds flit between willow-like branches and the subtle colours look fabulous peeking out from between leafy green plants. Reclaimed wooden furniture also looks great with this wallpaper, adding another element of nature.

If your floor is feeling left out from this trend, don’t worry, we’ve got it covered! The abstract watercolour effect of this Galleria rug is reminiscent of lilies on a pond, turning your home into the stateliest of all gardens. Build up plants around it, on coffee and side tables, and keep furniture neutral for maximum impact.

If you want an extra butterfly boost to this trend (as well as birds, a fairy and a winged unicorn!), look no further than Ted Baker’s Enchanted Dream bed linen collection. Earthy swirls adorn this collection to give it a very ethereal feel.
