Colour

Whether you loved it or loathed it, Flower Power was far from subtle. It’s bright mix of colours in eye-catching patterns were added to wallpapers, fabrics, furniture and accessories and took homes away from the constraints of the 50’s home interior. Colour has such an impact on homeowners and can create a light and cheerful space in the darkest of rooms. When the weather outside might not be as brilliant as we hoped, at least interiors could brighten our day. Adding florals is an instant way to add a variety of colour palettes which can then be picked up in home accessories and accent pieces.

William Morris prints have seen periodic revivals over the years and covered the most discerning of studies and living areas in the Arts and Crafts and Victorian period. While some may not opt for all out grandeur, a statement floral wall is a great way of adding pattern and breaking up flat space within the home.

With so many of us spending so much time at home this year, it has not been surprising that gardens are probably looking their most tended for years. For new and green fingered gardeners, recreating and connecting with the outdoors has a key benefit. Not only does it help us relax but it also has helps us to remain in tune with the natural world around us. As the summer season draws to a close, there is even more reason to add some floral interest into the home. Whether that is going for all out chintz or creating indoor garden spaces to help see us through the colder months, flower power seems like it is here to stay.
