Have your say

Spring and flowers go hand in hand, but this season designs have gone super-natural, with big, bold blooms, tropical foliage and ultra-bright bouquets.

It’s partly due to modern techniques making it possible to conjure blooms so pin-point accurate that you feel you can almost pick them, and those advances have helped create sophisticated - but affordable - in-your-face flowery patterns, in vibrant shades which shriek colour and style confidence.

If those haven’t yet grown on you, choose from the crop of more gentle, romantic, painterly floral effects.

“This season, floral designs have their rightful place as stars in the decor show,” says Tricia Guild, founder and creative director of Designers Guild.

“I’ve always been greatly inspired by flowers and they feature prominently in many of our collections. Historically, floral fabrics at a window are about extending the eye beyond the immediate physical space of the room, and a floral wallpaper on a feature wall can have a similar effect. Both approaches make it possible to create a vision of your very own garden inside your space.”

Make your home blooming beautiful and celebrate the great indoors.
