Fabulous florals

If you love the idea of having a garden in bloom all year round, why not try using oversized floral wall stencils to create a bold botanical design? This look is all about creating a dramatic focal point, so we recommend choosing a large expanse of wall and a simple colour palette of two complimentary hues (such as lilac and cream, or charcoal and orange) to really make the design pop.

Stencil effect

Wall stencils can be bought in most art shops, but you could also try creating your own with acetate or lining paper – if you’re unsure where to start, try looking at fabric patterns and wallpaper for inspiration. For maximum impact, use the same stencil to create a “cluster” effect that extends from floor to ceiling.
