Make your interior bloom
Adding floral patterns to your décor can bring brightness and joy into your home. Traditional choices include chintz and botanical prints, but contemporary designs are available too, including abstract patterns that sometimes barely look like leaves or flower petals. Many of today’s floral designs are totally up to date with current color palettes and decorating styles.
Depending what prints you choose, florals can create a feminine and delicate mood or make a bold statement.

Florals mix well with other patterns
Surprisingly, florals go well with other patterns such as stripes, plaids and checks. They also pair well with solids in complementary colors. You can even combine small-scale and large-scale floral patterns with common colors in each design to ensure a harmonious result.
Think about using floral prints for:
- Wall coverings
- Carpeting and rugs
- Upholstery fabrics
- Window treatments
- Painted patterns on wood furniture and walls

You can start small
If you’re nervous about adding florals to your home décor, remember that just a small addition of a floral print can lighten up an entire room. Experiment just a little with:
- Decorative throws
- Table linens
- Floral decor
