British Flowers Week has only recently come to my attention, but I am over the moon that it has! This fantastic week celebrates British flowers, florists, gardeners and sellers with events taking place across the country. I love florals and fresh flowers always make a room feel so much more complete. In celebration of this fantastic week here are my 5 favourite British flower-inspired home and garden accents!
1. Florist extraordinaire
A trip to Liberty just isn’t complete without a sigh-inducing wander through Nikki Tibble’s Wild at Heart florist. Whimsical, colourful and simply beautiful Nikki creates bouquets and displays that are just heavenly.
2. It has to be peonies
Blushing British peonies, whether in partial or full bloom, add the softest, prettiest touch to any room, and they are also perfect for summer weddings!
3. Botanical Wallpapers
If you want to add all year flowers to your home, a floral wallpaper is a perfect place to start! From small-scale tone-on-tone designs to bolder colourways with a big impact wallpaper is a great way to add colour, texture and pattern to a space.
Bluebell Gray’s water-colour floral fabrics and bedding, as well as tableware and ceramics for that matter, are just beautiful! Inspired by Fi Douglas’ love of colour and all things floral combined with a desire to create unique painterly piece they are now available from John Lewis and Amara.com.
5. A British Institution
If you’re looking for flower and garden inspiration the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show is the perfect place! Open from 30th June – 5th July this show is an absolute treasure-trove of colour, ideas and advice for your garden.
If you are looking for even more botanical inspiration, you should check out the colour palettes of RHS Chelsea.
