Hello Everyone! Did I ever mention how much I love a large funky floral print in a room? Seems like one of my favorite printed fabrics are indeed floral designs. There are a few designer tips that are applicable when it comes to decorating with a floral motif.
1. Florals are everywhere! A floral pattern can be on wallpaper, a fabric, a tile, or even painted onto a piece of furniture.
2. Upholstered furniture will take on new life when covered with floral fabric. Be sure that it’s a look you’ll love for a long time, however. If you’re unsure, then choose upholstery in a plain or textured solid and dress it up with pillows in a floral print. Or, use easily changed slipcovers to bring a floral look to furniture.
3. Balance strong patterns with lots of plain surfaces, on walls, floors, sheets, or curtains. Strong florals are beautiful and sometimes a little can go a long way. Using plain backgrounds will also give you flexibility in updating your accessories from time to time.
4. Use repetition to balance the look of a floral pattern. Repeat fabrics within the room so the patterns are seen throughout the room. For example, dress your bed in pretty floral, a floral pillow to a plain chair, or perhaps some floral plates hung over the door.
Simply fresh. The repetition of the floral pattern on the bed and the roman shade is beautiful.
The busy floral pattern on the draped canopy and headboard is played down against neutral cream walls and solid navy fabric and furniture.
Here the floral wallpaper is the focal point. The headboard and draperies are solid and some more pattern and color is introduced in the throw pillows.
Again, the repetition of the floral pattern on the draperies and the headboards are chic. Notice the plain walls and the solid bedskirt. I do love the overscale houndstooth pattern on the X benches in front of the bed.
How fab is that huge floral panel above the bed? The simple hotel style linens modernize the black and white bedroom. Now you see that a floral can be totally modern as well.
How fun is this girls bedroom? The pink and green floral wallpaper is simply stunning. Adore the hot pink desk and Lucite chair. The solid cornice and draperies are simply bordered with contrast trim.
Have an amazing week everyone!
