Nature’s fashion, florals, have forever been used to beautify our surroundings. From the boldness of bright blossoms to pretty pastel petals, floral prints can run the gamut. Notoriously romantic, we can’t help but think there’s no better place for floral prints than the bedroom. Below are examples of dreamy dwellings for inspiration and insight into how to incorporate floral prints into your space!
Georgie Rudge, founder of London based Town House Interiors, advises to avoid ‘matchy-matchy’ décor schemes when working with floral patterns. “Layer them up with geometric patterns to help balance the femininity of florals, or select a solid color that features in the floral pattern and use it between layers,” says Rudge.
Pamela Hughes, of Hughes Design Associates, kept this sunny bedroom in Kiawah Island light with simple white bedding layered over the floral bed skirt and pillows. Soft yellow wall color and window treatments blend beautifully with the busier floral bedding, acting as a complement instead of competition.
While the vintage floral wall paper of this bedroom could have translated more traditional, the designer duo behind Fiddlehead Design Group, LLC gave the room a glamorous edge with black bedding and a black ceiling.
The traditional floral print bedding of this British Colonial home’s master bedroom adds a feminine softness to the geometric accents, gray walls and modern furnishings. The solid white ceiling, shutters, lamps and linens balances the printed aspects of the space, dreamed up by interior designer Charmean Neithart.
Known for her New Traditional style, Karla Amadatsu, principal of Canadian based Kerrisdale Design Inc., breathes new life into this bedroom’s floral shams with a striped headboard featured in one of the pattern’s more subtle hues. The white linens, furniture and pale walls keep the room from being cluttered and the floral print the focus.
