The Hanging Gardens of…home?

The botanical look that’s working its way into the everyday living space

While January doesn’t tend to be the most exciting month, the influx of new interiors trends is always a New Year highlight for us.

A trend that is fast becoming one of our favourites is that of hanging plants. An introduction of botanicals brings a summer garden inside, and helps combat even the chilliest of winters.

Plants have been an increasingly popular addition to interior schemes, with terrariums and desert plants being must-have accessories for the past couple of years.

It’s difficult to scroll through Instagram without seeing at least a few posts containing trendy succulents.

For a great example of using botanicals inside your home, check out the pictured Eclectibles collection from Barker & Stonehouse. The influences of both Nordic and South American interiors are unmistakeable, and show how two distinctly different schemes can work together with this trend in unexpected harmony. Then, plant-pots teeming with gently cascading greenery arranged carefully either in planters attached to the ceiling or wall-hung vases have added to the scheme to create a fresh and spacious feel.

As the Pantone colour of 2017 is greenery there is even more excuse to embrace the power of plants.
