FEEL GOOD & FABULOUS FLORALS - THE MODERN WAY
Ironically the floral trend is nothing new. It’s been around forever… but this time the use of florals in interior design is taking a fresh new direction. This trend is now being harnessed to project a modern, cool vibe and can be worked into the contemporary, urban schemes of the now just as well as they have been used within the traditional interior design schemes of the past.
The best thing to love about this new look trend is that the rules of how to incorporate florals into your design scheme have been thrown out the window. Virtually anything goes, as long as you love it! Whether it be layering bold florals on top of the already at home geometric patterns of the past or mixing vintage floral upholstery pieces into an industrial apartment filled with exposed brick walls and sleek modern fixtures. If your feeling extra bold and enamored with the trend you could always layer large scale floral patterns like throw cushions, rugs or artwork on top of other large-scale floral patterns such as wallpaper or wallpaper murals.
Here is glimpse at some of the possibilities and ways you could easily incorporate florals into your modern interiors

Bright floral bedding is an easy less permanent way to incorporate this trend into your home. The market is awash with beautiful floral emblazoned linen. Make a bold statement and pair this back with a floral printed Indian kantha quilt. What a fun and colourful mix perfect for any modern home. Tip- this look works back so well with a polka dot or two…. so be on the look out for fabulous dotty bed adorning cushions. This would be an ideal look for a modern vintage kids room!!
Feeling daring? How about papering a wall with bold floral print wallpaper. Ideally keep this statement to one wall of a room or an entrance hall would be a great space for this treatment. There are some beautiful floral painterly effect wallpapers on the market at the moment that coincides so perfectly with this trend. They can look great mixed in with all those copper accents that are standing the test of the styling tide.
