Bring some Spring into your home with floral print decor. Floral prints are very trendy this year, and can bring a tremendous amount of cheerful energy to your room if introduced properly.
Floral prints should not just be placed into one specific category because there are endless variations of patterns, styles, and colors from which to choose. Just because one floral print did not work in your room or with your style does NOT mean that no floral print can work for you.
Here are some tips to help you get it right when decorating with floral fabric:
Choose Your Scale
Floral print can be treated like any other pattern, and should be introduced in both large and small scales. If you are looking for a more modern feel, go for a large-scale floral print for your primary piece. To balance out the look of the room with a warmer, vintage feel – introduce one or two pieces with a small scale floral print.
Find Your Balance
Floral print upholstered accent chairs are in style, and can add a great focal point to your room. If you have a floral print chair or floor rug, balance out the room with a few other floral accents such as a throw pillows and wall art. Too much floral print will make a room too busy – so make sure you have a solid visual balance.
Know How To Mix
Mixing floral prints does not mean you have to use the same print in different sizes, but there are key aspects you need to look for when pairing floral prints. The key to floral prints complementing each other is the background color. If you select one large scale pattern and two different small scale patterns that all have a similar background color – it will help tie them together visually. Be sure to also decorate with solid colors that are being pulled from the background color of the floral prints.
Floral prints don’t have to look like your grandma’s house and they also don’t have to be over-the-top girly. There are plenty of creative ways to throw a floral splash into your room in a way that fits your decor and style.
