HollandGreen in Bloom
Every year the stately grounds at the Hampton Court Palace come alive with one of the most iconic British events, the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. As gorgeous floral displays pop up all across Hampton and London, we can’t help ourselves and our interior choices beinspired by all things floral. We thought we would follow suit and showcase what HollandGreen Interiors thought were the best botanically inspired pieces to allow you to enjoy a blooming floral interior all year round.
De Gournay Wallpaper – Plum Blossom Design in Lavender on Tarnished Silver Gilded Paper
De Gournay is a household name when it comes to luxury hand-painted wallpaper. Plum Blossom is one of their trademark designs and is the perfect contemporary floral wallcovering, especially for a bedroom. We’d definitely recommend popping onto their website to see the new designs which have been taking the trademark name in an exciting new direction!
The Rug Company – Chiaroscuro by Alexander McQueen
The creative genius of Alexander McQueen for The Rug Company has managed to take the classic floral image from your granny’s chintz curtains and transform it into a statement rug that wouldn’t look out of place in an Abigail Ahern Interior.
Villiers – Wayside Coffee Table in Bronze
For those who prefer a more understated piece should look no further than the Wayside Table from Villiers. Not only because of the exceptional quality and fantastic UK craftmanship, but simply because it’s beautiful.
Porta Romana – Ivy Shadow Chandelier
Porta Romana is one of the most luxurious UK lighting brands. They recently teamed up with Tord Boontje, a renowned creative designer to produce their fairy-tale ‘Enchanted Forest’ collection. We love the Shadow Chandelier which when lit casts beautiful shapes and shadows around the room. It comes in a range of finishes to work with any interior.
Anthropologie for John Lewis – Piac Ciao Bella Floral Glass Tumbler
US brand Anthropologie has become a big name in the UK both for clothes but also for their eclectic interior pieces. They’ve teamed up with John Lewis to produce a range of gorgeous glassware. We love the Piac range with its delicately painted florals, perfect to brighten up tea in the morning or your favourite cocktail in the evening.
Timorous Beasties – Winchester Wallpaper Panel
Fortune favours the brave and that certainly is the case in this living room where the standout piece is the Winchester wallpaper by Timorous Beasties. The bold colours and detailed design is a work of art and something you and your guests can explore for hours.
Studium – Jacqueline Vine Mosaic Tiling
The Jacquline Vine Mosaic is beautifully understated and handcrafted with precision. These tiles can be used on the wall or floor to create soft visual interest as it whispers luxury. We love it.
Liberty Fabrics – Furnishing Fabrics – Shepherdley Flower Print
We couldn’t do a piece about florals without including Liberty Prints, an iconic part of British fabric history. They ventured into furnishing fabrics in the not so distant past and we especially love the Shepherdley flowers, available in either a fresh vibrant colour or a soft neutral tone. A roman blind, armchair or cushions? So many choices!
Thomas Darnell – Artist
US artist Thomas Darnell, who has exhibited his work internationally,is a very versatile artist and one you can’t necessarily categorise. His work encompasses more than the floral but for this blog, we’ve highlighted this aspect of his work. These large floral canvases are exquisitely painted and as you can see – HUGE, a real statement piece that leaves you feeling enveloped in beautiful softness.
Guinevere Antiques – Paula Swinnen Side Tables
For those who love introducing a bit of whimsy intotheir home, these side tables are just the ticket. Designed and made by the artist Paula Swinnen http://paulaswinnen.com who has focussed on expressing the beauty of flora and fauna in sculpture. We especially love the little snail and have become rather attached to him, we’ve named him Seymour. These tables might be sold soon!
