Weekend Style File: Bringing the outside in … Botanical Interiors


Spring is finally starting to arrive in Melbourne, the flowers are blossoming, the birds are singing and the sun is shining (well, in between torrential downpours!). Spring is a season I love, where nature awakens from it’s winter slumber and comes back to life. The colour green epitomizes this time of year and it’s a colour I have always been drawn to. It’s so fresh and bright and actually a very versatile colour, which is pretty neutral. After all, a plant will never clash with your room.

I love interiors that are all about bringing the outside in, so this week’s style file has a botanical theme. I hope to inspire through fresh, spring interiors, so that once your annual spring clean is over and done with, you’ll have plenty of ideas to brighten up your home or for my European followers … perhaps it will allow you to counteract the Autumnal/Winter blues.

Botanical prints on a green back drop provide a nature-inspired feature wall.


Rustic country feel with botanical elements, such as the Portmeirion crockery and floral display.


Fresh floral wallpaper contrasted with deep pink walls and industrial style accessories.


Fresh and bright interior with gorgeous natural walls.


Natural table decorations, plain & simple yet elegant.


Matisse-inspired living room.


Afternoon tea anyone?


Plants as a feature.

Create your own fresh Spring Interior with these 5 steps:

– Don’t be afraid to use lots of green.

– Choose patterned wallpaper and soft furnishings with floral & botanical motifs.

– Hang plant & insect prints on the walls.

– Create a display with plants or make them a central feature.

– Choose rustic accessories to give an outdoor feel.

Good luck with the spring clean and have fun sprucing up your interiors!
