Did you know that Surface View have over 1000 images which can be a little overwhelming to wade through, so they have created capsule collections and bite-sized trends, thus introducing you to the infinite world of Surface View. The first trend, that perfectly illustrates the sheer diversity of the imagery available, is ‘Flower Power’.
Providing endless inspiration for centuries of artists and designers, flora and fauna remains unsurpassed when it comes to trends. From ditsy chintzes, to bold tropical blooms and painterly meadow flowers, florals are masters of reinvention, with looks as diverse as their many different species. It’s more than a seasonal trend; florals blossom on all year round on catwalks, home fabrics, wallpapers and accessories.
Surface View has sourced a wealth of original artwork from the archives of the world’s most important institutions, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Natural History Museum, and The National Galleries of Scotland, as well as having access to imagery from picture library Trunk Archive and works from artists and photographers whose work draws on nature as muse. Through these collections they'’ve captured florals of every style, showcasing the power of flowers with their print technology.
By blowing up the scale, these artworks make striking murals and large-scale prints, creating maximum impact whilst keeping florals contemporary and directional. A delicate powder blue clematis by Michael Angove is transformed into a bold backdrop when enlarged; an oversized bouquet of blooms by textile designer Zina De Plagny projects colour and vibrancy all year round, and a traditional chinoisery wallpaper from the V&A collection sets a modern-pretty tone.
To celebrate the Flower Power collection and with Chelsea Flower show this week, Heart Home magazine is excited to join forces with Surface view and offer one lucky reader a chance to win a £200 voucher to spend. For a chance to win make sure to fill the form below. Good luck!
