There’s something green in the state of Denmark. As well as being one of the most environmentally friendly nations in the world, with a reputation for clean energy, recycling and eco tourism, Danish homes get a botanical makeover during the spring and summer seasons. How? By bringing the outdoors in, through interior design, textiles and prints inspired by nature.
“I’m seeing a lot of interest in plants and nature-inspired designs in people’s homes, in interior stores and online,” says Danish interiors expert and textile designer Pernille Møller Folcarelli who creates textured botanical prints.
Sofie Boersting, a designer and illustrator based in Copenhagen, agrees: “People are fascinated by natural interiors and many are even creating whole feature walls of botanical prints or wallpaper in their homes.” Sofie’s own hand-drawn botanical elements and nature-inspired collages appear regularly in the Danish press and have been selling out across the country.
