ideas notebook

NOD TO NATURE Keep a busy botanical wallpaper in check with beautifully grained timber furniture and a mix of eclectic and metallic accent pieces. Botanical Powder wallpaper, Graham & Brown. GET SQUARE! If your home can be classified as modern generic with little architectural detailing, mouldings can help transform it into a character charmer. For Insta-charm and impact, use strips of timber to create squares or rectangles of wall panelling, and then paint the entire wall the same colour. Wattyl paint in Tombola (panelled wall) and Limousine (rear wall).

Because the blooms sit right at eye level, you get to enjoy them up close, so they deliver tons of colour impact. Whether suspended from a verandah ceiling, hooked over a pergola beam, or hung from a fence bracket, hanging baskets create a flower scene wherever you want one – and what a scene! BASKET BELLES The most glorious flowering baskets are the summer ones, which you can put together using advanced seedlings or potted colour.

1 Native to the Philippines, Hoya pubicalyx ‘Pink Silver’ bears clusters of cerise flowers with pink centres.

The most popular variety is Hoya carnosa, known commonly as the wax flower, but there are actually more than 100 species and cultivars – with more still being discovered – so you’re absolutely spoilt for choice! While they’re most loved for their intriguing clusters of white, yellow, pink or deep purple flowers, the foliage is a feature, too. Plus, their diverse trailing or climbing forms make…
