WATERCOLOUR

Watercolour is one of the most whimsical, calming painting styles out there, and because of this, it’s right at home in the bedroom. For a light, airy feel, opt for pillowcases and a duvet or comforter with a white background, featuring light painterly washes of colourful blooms. Here, imperfections in the designs are embraced and reinforce the casualness that is integral to this theme.

GARDEN-BASED FLORALS

If you don’t have a garden or have limited outdoor space for plants, garden-based florals are perfect for bringing the outside in. Adorn your couch with a variety of floral-print scatter cushions, or opt to juxtapose them with cushions in a luxe, textured fabric such as velvet.

LUSH LEAF MOTIFS

There’s something about tropical leaves that is just so effective in the bathroom. Palm frond, banana leaf or Delicious Monster prints are by far the most popular. Consider incorporating leaf-printed towels or a shower curtain with an eye-catching print for an inviting Bali-style aesthetic.

DITZY FLORALS

Busy prints are ideal for everyday kitchen items – think aprons, pot holders and oven mitts – as the detailed design disguises blemishes and stains far better than solid colours. The kitchen is a space where you can really experiment with prints, so have fun and go for it!
