For the Love of Flowers
With the start of Chelsea Flower Show - when SW3 blooms with beautifully designed
gardens and magical displays - it seems like the opportune time to celebrate florals in design.
Flowers are the ultimate joy-giver. Indeed, it’s been scientifically proven that their colour, shape and vibrancy have an immediate impact on our happiness. Isn’t one of life’s simplest pleasures a
bunch of freshly cut sweet peas, blowsy peonies or fragrant roses?
In the words of interior designer Anna Spiro, whose style and skill of layering pattern on pattern
and colour upon colour is a constant source of inspiration:
“Find happiness, excitement and
pure joy in the most basic, no-frills experiences and objects life has to offer … I love being able to head out into our garden to cut bunches of flowers to place on tables and mantelpieces.”
At Bombay Sprout, flowers and foliage blossom across our rugs, referencing both native Indian
flora and horticulture closer to home. Whether the radiant pinks, green and yellow of our Chandigarh flatweave, the Mughal Poppy rug, a centuries-old design that still feels fresh today, or the pretty Felbrigg Floral, we hope they will remind you of summer days and verdant gardens.
Florals adorn our homeware too, from the hand-painted carnations on ceramic serving bowls to
the bright petal details beautifying our enamel jugs (incidentally, the perfect vessel for displaying armfuls of gloriously scented wildflowers or an artful arrangement of single-stem blooms).
