Welcome back and happy Monday to our fellow Architessans! We’re honoring one of the most ever-present design inspirations: florals and botanicals. February 28th brings us National Floral design day, and we thought to provide you with some inspiration before you head to the nursery and pick out some green companions. There’s something calming about having the presence of nature close by, especially when it’s available within the comfort of your home - not to mention, an aesthetic design addition! With a variety of plants and some floral-patterned wallpaper and tile design, you’ll have everything you need to add fresh additions to your home. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback in the comments, and enjoy!

Stylist Selina Blake says: "Botanical Style is not just about introducing plants into your home—it celebrates a whole host of patterns and designs inspired by all things botanical". There's no harm in adding greenery to your interior, especially now that we spend most of our time indoors.
