If you’re obsessed with anything plant-related, we’ve got good news. Greenery and botanicals were a huge trend in 2017, thanks to Pantone’s color of the year, and are here to stay in 2018. Gone are the days where indoor plants were the only botanicals to be featured in your home; the trend has now spread to interior design and can be featured on cushions, dinnerware, furniture, and wallpaper. Whether the inside of your home is looking outdated and dull or you want to experiment with lively prints, opting for botanical wallpaper will add character and personality to the overall look of your abode.

Instead of spending excessive amounts of money accessorizing every room in your home with a bouquet of flowers, opt for classic floral wallpapers instead. Whether you prefer powerful or subtle wallpaper prints, decorate your home with creative patterns that burst with bright colors and create layers of texture — nature’s beauty can make a big statement without overpowering certain spaces. From delicate blossoms to an array of roses and tulips, vintage-inspired wallpapers will provide a fresh yet modern update to your home.
