How To Master the Dried Flowers Trend

It’s the Instagram interiors trend that has blown up in the last few months: dried flowers. Yes, the bunches of fluffy pampas grass and faded hydrangeas beloved of your grandparents are officially having a revival – and we love it. And we’re not the only ones: Etsy reported a 93 per cent increase in searches for dried flowers compared to last year.

The good news is that this is a trend that’s easy to get on board with, and will instantly update any mantelpiece, bedside table or corner cabinet. We’ve gathered some inspiration below to get you started.

Pressing times

Revive the almost-forgotten art of flower pressing, and create your own unique works of art. Patience is required, though – this is far from instant gratification.

Compare & contrast

Mix wow-factor dried pampas plumes with spiky green foliage for a sculptural display.

Go abstract

You know what looks great with dried flowers? Abstract vases – coincidentally another big interiors trend this year. Invest in both together for double style points.

On the spike

Create an eye-catching display on your mantelpiece or side table by combining dried flowers with succulents.

Romance is dead

A bouquet of dried flowers makes a beautiful – and long-lasting – addition to your bedside table.

Scent-sational bouquets

Tie bundles of fragrant herbs together with a ribbon – lavender and rosemary work well – and display them on your walls.

Play it straight

Make a simple statement with a bouquet of long dried grasses in a tall vase.

Size matters

Play with different heights, sizes and tonal colours for a beautiful sideboard display.

Get in shape

Pair sculptural shapes and natural materials with dried grasses for maximum effect.

Send flowers

Instead of a normal bouquet of fresh blooms, why not send a wow-factor arrangement of dried flowers, instead? And the best thing is, they last longer than a couple of weeks.
