Wildflower Prints in Bloom Across Home Interiors & Fashion

13th May 2021

Wildflowers are in bloom across the fashion and interiors world. Acknowledging our desire to be reconnected with the outdoors after a long winter inside, designers have been cultivating their very own floral prints to celebrate the coming of the seasons.

Injecting a sense of calm and tranquillity, wildflower prints offer shoppers a look that feels light and carefree. Often seen printed on sheers and natural linens, these cheerful designs create a style that differs from the grandeur of large scale florals or the fluid form of more traditional tree of life designs.

Wildflower prints are often busy and crammed full of colour. Featuring softer painterly patterns or smaller micro shapes, these delicate designs look are being offered up by high-end designers and high-street stores. Wonderful to feature as part of your wardrobe and your homes interiors, we’ve curated our favourite wildflower prints of the season so far…

Bright and Busy Wildflowers

A meadow full of colourful wildflowers is one of the most beautiful sights to see in the English countryside. A haven for wildlife and insects, these pastures are often hives of activity as the florals provide an important supply of pollen and nectar for bumblebees and other pollinators.

The ideal inspiration for these fun, brightly coloured designs, these often over-crowded prints feature small to medium scale florals that fill the canvas in a vibrant stream of form and tone. Often leaving near to no space for a colourful ground, these busy meadow designs are often printed onto white to make them pop, or onto a dark background for a slightly more understated look. Full of energy and instantly cheerful, these busy prints are perfect if you are looking to create an eye-catching feature in your home or wardrobe that channels the same busy energy as the design.

In your home: A pair of statement full length curtains or a bold feature wallpaper will add that instant burst of colour to your room. By using the colours that are featured in the design as a ready-made palette to work with, you can maximise the impact of the meadow print with a mixture of plains and neutrals across the rest of your scheme. Particularly wonderful when you can see the garden beyond, featuring a busy meadow floral will transform your room into a floral sanctuary that feels fresh, modern and perennial.

Light and Breezy Wildflowers

A more delicate and elegant interpretation, botanical meadow prints are also trending across the world of fashion and interiors. A style that channels that wild and freeing nature of a wild meadow, these painterly, more pictorial designs are inspired by real-life horticulture prints.

Slightly more muted that their busier counterparts, light and breezy wildflower designs are perfect for those looking to create a natural, relaxed outfit or interior look for their home. Featuring dainty florals set against neutral grounds, these wildflower patterns are looser and less dense, in colourways that are more true to form. Painterly designs can be brighter, however the fluidity of the brush strokes dilute the vivid colours and helps to balance them against their often lightweight fabric grounds.

In your home: Floral linens and sheers create wonderful curtains that allow the light to flood into your home. Recreating the romanticism of a wildflower meadow, these beautiful fabrics and wallpapers are best suited to vintage interiors or charming country cottages. Cottons and linens are perfect for creating cushions to add colour to a plain upholstered sofa or comfort to a characterful rocking chair. This style is about incorporating the materials and textures of the outdoors, including using bunches of seasonal flowers to accentuate the meadow designs you choose to feature in your home.

Wildflower Mural Wallpapers

One of our most popular wallpapers, a wildflower mural is the ultimate way to feature this trendy, yet timeless design in your home. Transforming your space with a vibrant scene of colourful flowers and flying insects, the variety of shape and arrangement creates a fascinating backdrop that can be used across the home.

While bright and busy murals are a favourite for using in children’s nurseries and playrooms, more botanical designs look wonderful in living spaces that are lacking views of outdoor space. We especially love the idea of using it to connect one room to the next, or along a hallways to lead guests through the meadow and into your home. With many of our mural wallpapers available to print to your bespoke dimensions, designs can be edited and resized to perfectly fit around your furniture and your interior design.
