Why dried flowers are the simplest way to update your interiors for the year ahead.

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 recently 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.
