The dark side of florals

It’s official ­– cute, ditsy prints are out. It’s time to say hello to the moody blooms that will create depth, luxury and texture in your home. 2018 sees florals become oversized, and printed on a background of decadently deep shades.

This trend is rooted in darkness; there’s no doubt about the fact that it’ll add intensity to your rooms. You’ll need to think about your accessories – you can either go crisp, white and simplistic, or embrace the darkness for a black-on-black chic style.

The most popular way to incorporate this trend into your home is with wall art. There’s currently a wide selection of beautiful wallpapers on the market in dark floral, allowing you to create a fashion-forward feature wall. Unlike the traditional, repetitive flowery patterns, bouquet-based prints like the below are a unique way to capture this trend!

A heavy floral pattern twinned with busy, mismatched decoration can put you in danger of making your room look dated. Instead, team with white, scandi-style accessories for an insta-worthy interior!

If the floral pattern you’ve chosen contains pastel pinks and purples, simplistic, minimal colours will look great sat against it. Think grey, cream and authentic woods, like the below. Cosy neutral throws are a must!

If you’ve opted for a black, white and grey motif, keep things chic by accessorising with black and charcoal, and let the bright white of the flowers pop!

Recreate the style above with our Lars sofa. This modern, Scandinavian design will ensure that your room looks stylish, without distracting from the floral focal point.


If your floral design contains colour, accentuate this with a sofa in a complimentary shade – our Hunter in Boho Lilac would look gorgeous against a deep, floral feature wall!
