Floral Prints – Why We Love ThemObelisk Home
Sometimes the word “floral” can cause anxiety when it comes to interior design. Over the years, floral prints have gotten a bad rap for being old fashioned or off trend. Perhaps people recall their grandmother’s bedrooms or associate chintzy floral prints with country cottages.
We will admit that some floral prints might be verging onto the tacky side of things, but choosing the right balance will keep it from spreading through your home like weeds.
What’s the secret? Scale and balance. With floral prints, a little goes a long way. It may be hard to pull off an entire room wallpapered in floral, but an accent wall will always look great. Using floral printed fabric as accents, such as a chair or ottoman will look amazing as well. Pillows? You bet!
Don’t over do it!
We’re sure that floral prints have made their comeback. There’s a growing trend of bringing the outdoors into the home with decor, and floral prints are an instant connection to nature.
