Best botanical wallpaper prints to add into your home

Black & Blue Amazon Wallpaper

Amazon Wallpaper with table and chair

To really make an impact, try this dramatic wallpaper. Evoking the Amazon rainforest, it features lush greenery, large white flowers and even the occasional monkey. With its beautiful greeny-blue tones, it’s certainly on our list of favourite botanical wallpapers. 

The design is printed onto high-quality vinyl paper, which has a slightly rough finish for extra texture. If it becomes marked, you can easily clean it with a neutral detergent. 

Each sheet measures roughly 3m by 1.6m, and you can set it in place with standard wallpaper glue. 

Little Trees Wallpaper

Made.com Little Trees Wallpaper

Made.com is the place to go for smart, contemporary home décor, and this botanical wallpaper doesn’t disappoint. The pattern includes line drawings of little trees on a green background, and is also available in blue and yellow. You can buy different versions of the same pattern from a range of other retailers.

As an added bonus, the wallpaper is made in the UK with FSC-certified paper and water-based inks.

House Of Hackney Dove Grey Artemis Wallpaper

HOUSE OF HACKNEY dove grey artemis wallpaper with lamp

Since 2011, House Of Hackney has championed British design and manufacturing, inspired by William Morris and a ‘maximalist’ approach to home décor. 

This is one of the brand’s botanical wallpapers, with a dove grey background behind bold statement flowers. In the business’s words, it’ll “lend a decadent touch to eclectic home interiors”.

Thanks to its simple design and light colouring, this wallpaper should give any room a fresh, relaxed feel. 

Morris & Co. Strawberry Thief Wallpaper

You can’t go wrong with a William Morris wallpaper. With his huge range of nature-themed prints, the British textile designer has inspired countless brands since the 1860s, and the Strawberry Thief is one of his most loved motifs.

Morris & Co. first introduced this iconic pattern in 1879, and you can now buy it in a selection of different colours. We love the red and blue versions, with their cheerful birds and botanicals.

Willow Bough Wallpaper

Here’s another classic William Morris print. ‘Willow Bough’ dates all the way back to the 1880s. 

At Etsy, you can buy it in wallpaper form with a made-to-measure service. It’s digitally printed to your own requirements, and you can choose whether you buy traditional pasted paper or the peel-and-stick version.

Designers Guild Jardin des Plantes Marianne Wallpaper

We couldn’t resist including this floral wallpaper from John Lewis. It features bold blooms in the style of a painting, so you can create the look of an impressive mural when you fix it to your wall. 

With its large flower heads and colourful styling, this is a beautiful, traditional choice, ideal for bedrooms and dressing rooms in particular. 

Morris & Co. Fruit Wallpaper / Bird & Pomegranate Wallpaper

No list of botanical wallpapers would be complete without a mention of these two prints from Morris & Co. The brand’s Fruit design dates back to 1864 and features a natural colour palette and neutral background. It served as the inspiration for the brand’s similar Bird & Pomegranate print, which came along much later in 1926 and includes darker blue and green-toned colours.

Either print would make a striking addition to any room, either as a statement wall or an entire scheme. 

John Lewis & Partners Caravelle Wallpaper

If you’re after a botanical wallpaper with a contemporary twist, try this one from John Lewis & Partners. The retailer’s in-house design studio took inspiration from Arles in France to create this intricate floral print with its many circular shapes. 

With its detailed pattern and blue tones, this wallpaper would look particularly great in a bathroom. Use it to give small loos character and create a luxurious, hotel-like feel. 

Amazonia Monkey Trees Jungle Wallpaper

Recreating a tropical paradise is one way to inject a sense of fun into any room. This range of botanical wallpaper includes hand-painted spider monkeys climbing palm trees on a navy background. A dark and dramatic print, it’s a bold choice, ideal for rooms in need of a little colour.
