Inspired by botanics

Interiors have long been inspired by botanical elements…

Surface patterns and prints, which capture the great-outdoors bring elegance inside, with florals and foliage.

Stylized large leaf prints create bold statements.

Leaf fronds and ferns, horticultural florals and even insects are ever popular on textiles, making their appearance on many fabrics, wallcoverings and interior accessories.

Botanical drawings and paintings look fabulous together, when collectively clustered.

Oversized palm leaves, Monstera leaves, more commonly known as a ‘cheese plant’ and ferns seem to have been the most popular choice amongst designers, with stylized interpretations in bold green shades a firm favourite.

The introduction of digital wallpapers has enable designers to create fresco styled wallcoverings, ideal for creating a feature in a room. Some of these are so intricate, their designs are reminiscent of hand painted murals of a bygone era.

Hand painted fresco’s are now achievable with digitally printed wallpapers.

It’s these advances in technology that have allowed tile manufacturers to introduce more detail to their patterns and designs too!

One of five tiles from the recently launched ‘Amazonia’ range by CDT Architectural.

CTD Architectural has recently launched ‘Amazonia’, a stunning collection offered in five finishes and both square and hexagonal formats. CTD Architectural describes their collection as being ‘born from an appreciation of handmade craft that is inspired by a hot and humid climate’.

In five distinct palettes, ‘Amazonia‘ was inspired by humid, tropical climates.

The square format tiles have a more artisan allure, with a handmade feel, whilst the hexagonal tiles feature bold botanics and textures. Made of glazed porcelain, these tiles have a matt finish and are suitable for use on both walls and floors.

At Designer Connections, we are in awe of this range! In fact we were so inspired by them that we decided to create a new Pinterest board…
