Nothing marks the coming of spring quite like the appearance of those colourful and varied flowers so indicative of the season. When the daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths start popping up, you know the cold, dark winter is behind you and it’s time to start enjoying the many spring flowers found in gardens and local parks. There’s no need to stop there, though – be it with wallpaper, textiles, or something else entirely, bringing some of that life and colour into your home is easy, and essential at this time of year.
Bring the colours of spring into your bedroom with a floral patterned quilt or other bedding.
Looking to purchase a new sofa or chair this spring? Enjoy the season all year long by opting for something with a floral print fabric.
Floral wallpaper offers a great way to give your home that springlike feel. Stick to a single accent wall, though, otherwise your room will appear overwhelmed by the patterns.
Having said that, if you opt for a more understated floral wallpaper, similar to the one above, then papering an entire space will work fine.
If you think floral curtains are just for your gran’s house, think again – curtains can be as classic or as contemporary in design as you like.
You can quickly and easily add spring colours and motifs to a space with a floral rug – they come in a variety of styles and sizes so you should have no problem finding one to suit your tastes and your home.
Another simple way to make your home bloom like spring is with accessories. Floral patterned scatter cushions, lamp shades, footstools… the choices are practically endless.
Florals are great for brightening up a room, but if you don’t do cheery, they can also be found in more dark and moody tones.
Floral patterns can be added to pretty much anything, anywhere in the home. If you’re looking to refurbish an old piece of furniture, consider stenciling some floral designs onto it.
Love florals but don’t want to make any long-term changes to your home? Then hang floral paintings or prints instead.
