Floral furnishings are surreal this season. Super-sized blooms enfold entire walls, backgrounds are inky and moody, and colours unnatural. If you peer into the petals there could be stranger elements: is there really a snake in that bouquet?

Ted Baker puts bold bouquets on sateen double duvet covers, £90, and pillowcases, £35 a pair (ashleywildegroup.com).

Ralph Lauren’s swirling floral tableware in black or indigo is made by English craft pottery Burleigh (cereal bowl £32; salad plate £34).

And Jenny Mein hand-paints the exotic fruits and flowers of her childhood family garden in Jamaica for bone china made in Stoke-on-Trent (£16 for a mug, £20 for a salad plate).
