The trend for botanical style in our bedrooms is here to stay, reflecting the growing popularity of bringing the outdoors in and connecting with the natural environment to give us a sense of wellness.
Botanical bedroom design creates a visual connection with nature and a calming space to sleep, whether it’s through plant-inspired décor and fabrics, green walls and accessories, the use of natural materials like wood or displaying indoor plants.
In this article we’ve put together our favourite botanical bedroom ideas, from simply adding a leaf-print rug or tropical blind to investing in a green bed or statement wallpaper.
The colour green instantly gives a botanical feel to your bedroom and it’s ideal for creating a soothing, relaxing vibe.
Consider painting your walls in on-trend shades of sage, olive or grey-green, or introduce pops of colour through cushions, throws, vases, candlesticks or even a green bed.
In the bedroom pictured above we’ve gone all-out with olive green walls and green bedding, then balanced this with the warm, natural tones of the bed frame and bedside table, as well as the earthy shades in the cushion and blanket.
Green hues also work well in a guest room and a stylish green sofa bed can make a great statement piece.
If you want to go big with botanicals, try decorating your walls in a large wall pattern like we’ve done in the bedroom above.
It’s a simple and effective way to bring the botanical trend into a minimalist bedroom and we’ve added other elements of the trend by placing a houseplant next to the bed and using natural wood for the bedside table and flooring.
You could also bring a lush and leafy freshness to your bedroom with a modern botanical-print duvet cover or rug, or a few pieces of botanical art. When you’re choosing flowery prints go for modern florals in bold, stylised designs and avoid anything fussy or chintzy that could look old-fashioned. If you want to make a statement without investing too much, we recommend dressing your window with a vibrant tropical print blind.
Adding indoor plants to your botanical bedroom design is a great way to bring the outside in.
As well as looking beautiful and creating structure and interest, houseplants have both physical and mental wellbeing benefits and there’s a great choice of beautiful bedroom plants that help you sleep better.
Whether you take the plunge and paint your bedroom walls green or simply introduce a flowery print on your duvet cover, there are so many ways to bring botanical style into your bedroom. Just remember to go for modern florals and contemporary prints for a look that’s fresh and current.
