We have recently added GP & J Baker’s Ashmore collection into our portfolio, featuring its signature prints and embroideries of painterly birds and delicate florals.
As we begin to discuss these new products with our clients at their appointments, we have rounded up the best advice for you on how you can stylishly introduce floral elements into your window dressings and design projects.
Florals can go with everything
We can all agree that florals are made to feel at home against a bold or complementary colour for the ultimate show-stopper. But do not rule out pairing with dots, stripes and monochrome which can all make florals shine in their own right. The trick here will be to strip back the colour palette and opt for darker and neutral shades to complete this contemporary combination.
Choose your favourite flowers
It may sound obvious but if you tend to shy away from roses, then don’t dress your bedroom head to toe with a St. David’s design. Think about which flowers make you happy and that you would send or pick yourself. Once we know if you prefer peonies over pansies, or hydrangeas to honeysuckle we can begin to suggest ideas and create your bespoke products.
Experiment with smaller pieces first
Scatter cushions, bed linen or a simple throw can stand the test of time on how much you will want to invest in floral interiors. If after introducing these pieces into your room decor you feel you want to upscale, it would be our pleasure to discuss made-to-measure curtains, blinds and soft furnishings that will be unique to you and your home.
Florals don’t need to be twee
Tumbling foliage, palm prints and jungle aesthetics all count in our book as florals, so if feminine chintz is not your style, then we would be happy to show you our gallery of samples that we think would suit your individual tastes. We can also advise on the best colours to choose if you don’t want to go down the traditional route of spring and summer shades.
