Want your home to be serene and sophisticated? The luxe botanical interior look offers a fresh modern take on traditional florals. It is a mix of greens and abstract large-scaled leafy patterns. Be inspired by tropical leafs, palms and ferns. All these elements are totally glam and elegant yet they make you feel refreshed and calm.

So how can you achieve this luxe botanical look for your interior and avoid it looking like your grandmother’s floral bedroom?

The obvious way is by bringing some nature into your space in the form of plants and flowers. The luxe look rule is ‘more is more’.  Don’t stop at one bunch of flowers. Buy multiple bunches and display them all in vases of varying shapes for the one space.

Try mixing all shades green together. Emerald, mint, olive etc. All shades of green work together, as long as you have three or more green variations in the one space. Team it with hints of navy, dark purple, charcoal or vivid white. Dark tones allow the green hues to pop and a vivid white backdrop gives a crisp and refreshing contrast to green.

The botanical look can also include some floral prints. The rule to ensuring florals look luxe and on-trend is choosing large-scale floral patterns. You can even incorporate tropical fruits and animals. Again, remember more is more.

Also, be sure to make the most of natural light – it’s the best free interior design tool there is and it both invigorates and uplifts the mood of a room. Sheer curtains give you privacy and create a relaxed yet glamorous vibe. Best of all, they still allow the natural light to pour in. For a totally luxurious look use fabrics like silk and velvet that show off the light’s reflectivity.

So take inspiration from these very glamorous interiors and bring some luxe botanicals into your home.
