Floral prints have gotten a bad rap over the years and for unfair reasons. Many homeowners are afraid of decorating with floral prints because they don’t want their space to look overly feminine or granny-like, but florals don’t have to be either of these things. I love floral prints in the home, and with these tips in mind, you can decorate your space with floral patterns and items in a way that’ll make you love them, too!
Size and color determine style
If you’re not decorating your home with floral patterns because you believe them to be too feminine, choose a print that features large flower designs and bold colors. Modern floral prints are in no way overly girly, and they’re definitely not like the prints you remember in your grandmother’s home.
Balance is key
Florals can easily be paired with other patterns. You just have to tie the look together through color. To create unity in your space, pick two or three colors that are featured in your existing décor, and then find a floral print fabric that features those same two or three colors. This will keep your room from looking too busy or complicated.
Mixing florals creates an energized look
There’s no rule that says you can’t mix floral prints. In fact, it’s great if you do! Mixing and matching floral prints will breathe life into your space and give it a fresh look. To mix floral prints successfully, look for matching background colors and only use one large pattern so they don’t clash.
Florals are back everybody! Bring this fresh look inside your home and you’ll see just how stunning a floral print can be.
