A twist to floral design
Posted by Joy / to Trends, Interior Design / on April 5, 2013

The first thing I think of when I hear “floral pattern” is my Grandma’s guest bedroom where everything was floral. I mean everything matched and it was horrible. The duvet cover, pillows, curtains, lamp shades, and the chair in the corner all had the same floral pattern. All that flower power was not a good look and I hated staying in there. That room made me think floral patterns were for old ladies who couldn’t stop buying matching things. Luckily floral is growing on me because it has a new twist. This new twist is a simple white background. Let’s face it the floral pattern needed a new look that wasn’t over powering.

The images below show us what a room can look like with the new floral. The left one is more traditional and I can see it being my Mom’s living room. The right one is more modern and I would put into my house if I owned a house. Both of these rooms are a huge upgrade from my Grandma’s guest bedroom.


The three Calkins pieces are my favorite floral patterns we have. I love the one pop of color on the monochromatic theme. Creating a room around one of these simple and sleek patterns would be so much fun.

The images below are floral patterns that we also have. They caught my eye because they are not the typical floral and would make a great addition to your home. I can’t make up my mind if they should be wall coverings, art pieces, upholstery, rugs, or even pillows but it is fun imagining what the room would look like with one of these patterns. Which one is your favorite and what would you do with it?

  I like modern florals too! Some of these floral photographs would look beautiful blown up large to cover an entire wall.
