Spring has well and truly sprung this week, with the sunny weather drawing everybody out of the house and into the outdoors! However, with the clever use of texture and botanical prints, you can bring the spring vibes into your home, and enjoy the summer from the comfort of your sofa…
A key trend for spring/summer is the incorporation of wicker and rattan furniture and accessories in the home. Usually a texture used in outdoors decoration, these materials really allow you to bring the outside in, giving your interior a light, summery feel.

However, this isn’t the only kind of texture that’s set to take over this summer! Heavily textured cushions and soft furnishings, as well as interesting focal points such as macramé hangings and woven decorations all add different points of interest to your rooms. Don’t be scared to mix and match textures either – these varying materials look amazing against each other!
Botanical and tropical prints were huge in 2017, and if you decorated using this theme, adding texture is the perfect way to give your interior a 2018 update, with outdoorsy accessories fitting in brilliantly with this leafy look.
