This is the eighth post of a series “Style, Substance and Color:...
Today we are talking about one of the most popular trends to hit the design industry: botanicals! The trend has been growing for the past couple of years, and it has finally reached every single form of design. We are seeing Nature popping up from walls, bed sheets, cushions, wallpapers, fashion, book covers… well, from everywhere!
But let’s focus on the walls for the moment and explore a subtrend we spotted on the Instagram - dreamy boho botanicals with a feminine touch.
With a comeback of color, botanical prints are now bursting with life with their rich color palettes featuring greens, pinks, yellows and reds. Pastels and earthy tones dominate the theme, but no matter how bright the shade may be, if it adds to a dreamy feminine mood, it can feel homely in these botanical 70s-inspired illustrations.
Maximalist by rule, feminine botanical illustrations apply to both maximalist and minimalist interior spaces. They are equally effective in adding character and color to minimal concepts, as they are in making a fun statement in the urban jungle, modern boho or mid mod rooms.
But the truth is that even though they are loved by many, not everyone is bold enough to introduce them into their homes. It requires a certain type of character to relate to the honesty of these art pieces on a daily basis, but as trend reports suggest - the niche is skyrocketing! Living mindfully is becoming an imperative to many who are now ready to embrace authentic and unusual design solutions when creating their home retreats. Celebrating a home and everyday life with all its imperfections and small moments in private is gradually starting to receive the attention it deserves.
If your client is an artistic, plant-loving soul who is looking for a truly unique space full of character, consider using some of these whimsical beauties in your mood boards. If they click, you are promised to hit that wow factor you are aiming for.
To make things easy, we rounded up some of our favorites from Instagram. Prepare yourself for an instant mood boost!
