The Beauty of Botanica – Our Thoughts on the new Collection from Cole and Son
The Beauty of Botanica
By Leona Connelly
After a glorious Summer September is suddenly upon us, bringing with it thoughts of shiny new school shoes and smart new pencil cases. It’s no different here in the interior design world as the design houses launch their shiny new collections. So it was with much excitement we unpacked the new wallpaper books from one of our all-time favourites Cole and Son.
Surmise to say it did not disappoint. The Botanical Collection is simply stunning and we are really looking forward to showcasing it. So what is it all about? Cole and Son describe it as “A seasonal exploration of the English Landscape”: It captures the beauty of more formal and cultivated gardens Shown in all its splendour here in Topiary. We envisage this in a garden room or dining room creating a stylised and timeless look.
The collection also embraces wild and less formal flora, depicting the allure of rolling meadows and Woodlands. This vibrant and impactful paper would work equally in a more modern or traditional home and is beautifully done in this seasons ever more popular colour palate of rich greens and teals.
The Botanica collection is cleverly divided into seasons and the colours and flora and fauna associated with each season. Spring has a shimmering palate of lemon olive and sage, Summer shows the vibrancy of nature in full bloom using colours such as Mulberry Lilac and Coral. Autumn captures the glory of turning leaves using a stunning warm palate of bronze cerise amber and gold, While winter is a striking mix of cool tones such as jade teal and pine and evokes the beauty of nature and the landscape even in bleak winter.
As expected the whole collection is utterly fabulous and a welcome addition to our Library. Watch this space for some inspiring schemes based around this wonderful wallpaper collection that really has a palate to suit a vast range of styles and settings.
Want to have a look for yourself – the collection is available to browse at both our Wetherby & Harrogate showrooms.
