Create an eye-catching focal point in your living room by positioning a crittall-style window mirror opposite a floral wall mural: it will frame your artwork perfectly, providing the illusion of an additional print.

Embrace faux flowers

Stick to yellow, green and purple hues to help unify a botanical scheme, and add interest to pieces of furniture such as a side table or coffee table by placing faux flowers on them for a rustic display that will last all season. And for a subtle decorative touch, hang a beaded chandelier.

Incorpate pared-back style with decorative plants

If you have living-dining room, use fresh foliage as a centrepiece for your dining table. If you have or are planning to decorate a pared-back scheme, stick to minimal pattern and restrict yourself to textured materials - on-trend terrazzo tableware works well.

Bring the outside in with the help of display shelves

Celebrate the new gardening season and set your green fingers to work on a retro, rustic makeover living room, putting up shelves to maximise storage and add interest. Display your favourite cuttings or fake it with faux plants, showcasing them in artisan pots and vases.

Combine rustic finishes with a tonal green scheme

Complement a nature-inspired scheme with timeless geometric-pattern herringbone flooring. A mix of contemporary and industrial furniture sets the tone for this laid-back rustic look. 

Co-ordinate a combination of restful shades with graphic plant motifs for a fun, playful feel. Introducing a few splashes of sunny yellow to a tonal green scheme is the perfect way to inject a happy feel. Pair with blush pink and dusky purple for a relaxed, modern twist.
