Chrysanthemum Design Inspiration and Moodboard

My fresh and floral Chrysanthemum design joined the Garden Collection back in 2016 and has been a firm favourite ever since. The bright yellow hue makes this design perfect for a beautiful spring interior and brightens up even the dullest of spaces.

This colour can be paired with many other shades to create your desired look, during the photoshoot I paired this design with grey and green from freshly picked plants as these neutral colours let the yellow shine and really showed it off. I’m really drawn to this design as the beautiful chrysanthemum blooms and silhouetted bees make a space feel bright and airy, perfect for spring or to wish away the grey winter days.

Here is a mood board showing the inspiration behind the chrysanthemum design based on beautiful multi-petal flowers in bud and about to bloom. When I was drawing the Chrysanthemum flowers I really wanted to show the depth and quantity of petals found within the chrysanthemum flowers. I used translucent block colours to show the shadows and shapes created when light passes through the flowers. Some of these images were taken from the chrysanthemum flowers I was growing in my roof garden at the time of illustrating this design.

Chrysanthemum Interior Design

My love of British gardens has led me to explore a whole range of outdoor spaces, from the formal gardens of stately homes to my own Oxfordshire countryside garden and I’ve incorporated the shapes and shades of many well-loved favourites.

The chrysanthemum design features on many products, cushions, lampshades, fabrics, wallpapers, roller blinds and is even featured in our stationery collection. Chrysanthemums are a lovely hardy perennial plant that will continue to flower through the late summer months. My favourites are the Bright Yellow flowers produced above the dark green foliage.

In Japanese culture, the chrysanthemum’s yellow flower symbolises the sun, light and immortality. The Japanese have proclaimed the chrysanthemum as their national symbol, and celebrate the ‘Festival of Happiness’ every year in honour of the chrysanthemum. In British culture yellow flowers are often seen as a symbol of friendship due to the happy yellow colours.

How to Style Chrysanthemum Interiors

I love putting patterns together so I would recommend pairing the chrysanthemum with Juneberry and bird, it’s one of my favourite combinations, the yellows work so well together, alternatively, the yellows also look fabulous with the yellow colour in the Broom and bee sky fabrics.

If you want to make chrysanthemum the star of our room there are so many fabulous paints and fabrics which work really well with cotton linen fabric. I recommend looking at texture, velvets as they look so lovely next to the wide weave of the linen, and give a really rich colour. If you want to be brave, a bright yellow velvet chair would look beautiful but also deep greys would look luxurious alongside the floral print.

In the mood board, I’ve styled the Chrysanthemum cushions alongside other patterned cushions on a light grey sofa with a dark grey/blue wall colour with traditional dark wood furniture.

Photoshoot Plan

I plan all of my photoshoots, here I plan the hero collection. The chrysanthemum design brings a pop of colour to the moody and warming hues of the Pansy and Buds & Butterflies designs. Chrysanthemum also goes nicely alongside Wren & Cherry as they are both neutral and brightening.

You can see here how we use collage to create a compositional plan using Photoshop. I always design my shoots in this way, it’s a great way to get across what I need from my assistants and the photographer.

Behind The Scenes on Shoot Day

Alex tapes fresh blooms and foliage to the wall to pick up on the yellow within our Chrysanthemum design, you can see here how the design pairs nicely with a number of colours and looks fresh and vibrant. Lots of perfecting goes into compositions on shoot day to ensure I capture beautiful images for my blog and website, enabling you to see how the design could work within your own home.
