Fun and fanciful, serious and mature – floral prints add the perfect nuanced element to almost any design theme. Due to their ability to tie together otherwise unconsidered colour combinations, floral patterns allow for an even broader array of colour and depth in a space.
Apart from coating the walls in floral wallpaper, floral accessories are a perfect way to add accents to a room and strike the right balance in layering colours. By adding hues found in the more extensive colour palette of wall and furniture, floral motifs allow you to use those colour choices found within those more significant anchor pieces to tie an overall theme together.
Available in contemporary, abstract, traditional, or whimsical patterns, florals can be integrated into any interior design or colour scheme. It is merely a matter of knowing which type of floral patterns work best to catch the eye without overwhelming it.
Because it is so easy when decorating with florals to end up with a design that is overly feminine or gaudy, it is essential to choose floral patterns carefully to avoid the entire room ending up with an unappealing busyness to its overall tone.
To avoid a design style that is too feminine, choosing floral patterns which focus on the vines, leaves, or stems of botanicals help to create a more gender-neutral style. Another option is to avoid an over-feminised room is to choose floral prints that are composed of muted or earth tones.
