Wall coverings are a wonderful way to introduce a botanical theme into your home.

You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a botanical themed fabric for your home. Whether your upholstering furniture, making curtains or cushions or even a new headboard; choosing the right fabric in terms of both weight and drape is really important.

Think about the end use the fabric is being used for, not just in terms of wearability, also the design or pattern you select.

For seating you will want to consider a more structured, robust fabric, whereas for accessories such as cushions, you can consider a less hard-wearing fabric, and maybe something with a more delicate embroidery.

Make a real statement with your fabric choice, consider a bold design which would look fantastic for an accent chair, or a natural trailing design which would look amazing by making the most of the length of fabric needed for curtains.

I couldn’t share my fabric choice without including quite possibly two of the most famous fabric suppliers producing gorgeous fabrics linked with nature and florals Liberty and William Morris.

Is always a great way to incorporate a theme or trend, without it causing too much of an upheaval or a lot of money.

The added bonus as with most sellers on Etsy, is you’re also supporting a small business, which I’m all for; so if you have a spare half an hour, do pop over and have a little scroll through, you won’t be disappointed.

Dried Flower Wall Hangings
What better way to add a botanical theme into your home, than bringing the outside in with the introduction of some dry flowers? However I’m not referencing the “standard” bunch of dried flowers, I’m referring to creating a dried flower feature or wall hanging.
