We’re sold on big blousy florals on our walls, now it’s time to think again about florals in your upholstery.
Don’t be scared, go all out and snuggle up with your fragrant favourites.
With iconic fabric house Osborne & Little celebrating 50 years of design with an opulent new collection, jump on board the visual journey through the Italian landscape with a little indoor gardening of your own.
Make a statement with a single piece and tie in other room elements by picking up colours from within the pattern.
If an all-over pattern is more than you can cope with (or convince the family of), mix it up with pattern and plain on the one furniture piece. Your upholsterer can help with suggestions of which panels will work best.
Keep to a minimal palette elsewhere in the room by downplaying colour and pattern to allow your statement sofa to shine.
Bring in a little aged patina in to offset the floral infusion – play with different textures on plain fabrics in other finishes – distressed walls and flooring, deeply painted timbers, touches of faded glamour in metallics and mirrors.
