Ideas for Decorating With Floral Patterns

by Mallory Knee

Florals have been treasured elements of home décor for centuries. When used creatively, these ideas for decorating with floral prints will brighten your home.

Floral prints suggest warmth and hominess. Classic and modern décor alike can use some creative ideas for decorating with floral prints to make a room more welcoming or brighten a neglected corner. Floral patterns aren’t just for chairs, sofas, and drapes. Modern homes and small apartments can use florals just as effectively as larger, stately homes.

An obvious and inexpensive way to add some botanical beauty to your living space is with floral pillows. Bright and bold in an otherwise neutral room, floral pillows add just that pop of color to warm up the space and promote relaxation.

On the opposite end of the price spectrum are custom floral mosaics. Artisans can create these for kitchen backsplashes, accent walls, or even entry floors.

Tables and Dressers

Paint a salvaged dining table or a rummage sale treasure in a floral pattern to add a bit of fun to the breakfast area. If you don’t have a gift for arts and crafts or DIY projects, a new floral pattern tablecloth with complementary napkins turns an ordinary table into a focal point.

For the not-so-artistically inclined, stencils make applying a floral pattern to a tired dresser simple. For those with a bold aesthetic, plain closet and bathroom doors make great canvases for oversized floral images or all-over wallpaper prints.

Bedclothes

Canopy beds look regal with floral pattern side curtains. Upholstered headboards look lovely in a floral pattern. Bedspreads, pillow shams, and bed skirts in peaceful floral patterns bring a sense of garden restfulness to the bedroom. They’re inexpensive and washable, too, so they are good choices for home décor on a budget.

Accent Pieces

Ottomans with floral upholstery perk up a reading nook. Floral pattern vases add elegance and interest to bookcases, hall tables, and mantlepieces. Add a floral pattern cane to the front hall umbrella stand for both beauty and practicality when a little extra style or support would come in handy on a stroll around the neighborhood. Floral screens double as room dividers.

Consider adding a floral lampshade. If you collect teacups or china, pull out the floral patterns and put them on display by hanging them on a wall or standing them on a shelf. Open shelving in the kitchen benefits from peel and stick shelf paper. This not only adds color and life to the kitchen but protects the shelves and makes them easy to clean with just a wipe.
