Why electro botanical is spring’s vibrant new trend

The spring trend that’s taking the interiors world by storm has taken a step away from monochrome and is diving headfirst into a world of colour. Following in the footsteps of fashion, furnishings and decor are going to be beautiful but daring. Electro botanical will transport you to a world of colours, enchanting textures and expressive patterns.

Replacing the dark, moody hues of winter and the minimalist, muted tones of previous seasons, this new palette unites colour with even more colour.Expect to see a vibrant palette that is rich, warm and bursting with botanical motifs and organic forms such as bountiful blooms and fabulous foliage.

Here’s a simple step-by-step guide on how you can introduce the vibrancy of electro botanical into your home this spring.

Furniture and decor

If you’re looking to add smaller touches of that spring-time feeling, decor is your first point of call. Changing over your artworks, rug and accessories can add a whole new lease of life to a room. You can change up the theme completely just by swapping out colours, textures and prints.

A fresh coat of paint is the easiest way to embrace the electro botanical look and will brighten and change the mood of a room. Another fantastic alternative to paint is wall paper, and if you’re looking for a fully flexible solution, a removable wall mural is the answer.

Removable wallpaper

Wallpaper is a fantastic and simple option if you’re looking to embrace a daring interior design trend for only one season. There’s a huge array of wallpaper designs to choose from and you can even look at having a custom design created. Be sure to check out a company called Pickawall, which House of Home helped custom design. This beautiful wallpaper that layers colour and floral motifs really complements the whole electro botanical feel.

Fabrics and cushions

With their tactile nature and vast array of designs and patterns, fabrics and cushions are perfect for spicing up your home without too much expense or commitment. This year fabrics are bright, colourful and beautiful with blooms or exotic botanical motifs. These designs bring fun and a sense wonder and whimsy to a room.

If you’re looking to add punches of colour and pattern to a room, cushions and throws allow you to do so in a subtle way. However, when teamed with gorgeous wallpaper and an eyecatching rug, cushions will balance these elements and create an overall striking aesthetic. 

Try to keep these elements in a similar overriding colour palette so that they don’t clash, and to help you achieve a visual flow.

Accessories

Decor and accessories are great for introducing colour, texture and beautiful finishes. They also add depth and dimension to a space and really are the icing on the cake as they help to create interest while allowing you to showcase your own personal taste and style.

Decor objects can be quirky and unexpected, or just something that you love or even have a sentimental attachment to. No matter the reason, accessories are a must for every interior as they help to make the space feel complete.

Decor and finishes

This spring is all about brass and brightness. Metallic finishing for decor, furniture and lighting is favoured. Brightly coloured resin products are filtering through along with coloured glass and terrazzo. Also, books about flowers, plants and gardening make perfect coffee table literature and will complete the electro botanical look.

Botanicals and blooms

Botanicals and blooms are another must for any home this spring as they breathe life into the interior. Faux flowers and plants are making a huge comeback as they now look life-like and require zero maintenance. They’re perfect for bookcases or hard-to-reach places where you want to add colour, yet not have to worry about watering or how much sunlight the plant gets.
