From cactus vases, leaf-printed duvet sets and plenty of potted plants - bringing the outdoors in has never been so easy thanks to the botanical homeware trend.
The green-craze has seen green-fingered enthusiasts and nature lovers rejoice as palm-leaf prints and no-maintenance artificial plants making their way into our living rooms and bedrooms. Pantone, the global authority on all things colour and shade, named Greenery as its Colour of the Year for 2017.
So go botanical this summer and create the ultimate retreat with refreshing green tones, palm prints and complementary finishing touches.

George Home editor, Sharon Parsons, says the trend is easy to work into a neutral scheme. "A vibrant green can seem a bit overwhelming at first sight, but when used in the right way it really gives a room a lift."
So be the talk of the table with a beautiful botanical spread with all your tableware and cutlery. You ccan show off your flowers in this quirky cactus vase - which makes the perfect centrepiece - and spruce up your dining table with some embossed dinner plates. Then, add some copper hues into the mix, like these salt and pepper shakers, to help add some warmth and complement the green.

"Add pops of colour with cushions and ornaments and of course, plenty of plants," says Sharon.
Taking inspiration from rainforest surroundings – kick back and unwind with some green cushions, and surround yourself with copper potted plants and artificial leaves to create the ultimate Zen retreat.
