1. Floral walls
The floral interiors have the amazing property of adding a touch of history to everything. And this is a technique that can be used successfully when decorating a house, no matter if it is new. In this way, by redecorating a room you can preserve its original atmosphere but inject new life at the same time.
You can use floral motifs throughout the house, such as on the fabrics of pillowcases and curtains, on lamps, and, of course, on the wall. For this type of touch, you can opt for a traditional wallpaper or a flower mural. The latter makes the wall, not just an accent, but an object of art by itself.

Another purpose of floral motifs is to create an atmosphere of calm and tranquility and does not necessarily have to be only warm and “summery”, since a dark wallpaper is a good tool to give contrast to a room by diluting the monotony of the space with wallpaper with floral motifs.
The larger the print, the less you should use an additional floral decoration because then it will look too cluttered. However, in reality, there are no clear rules for the use of floral prints. So if you’re afraid to go over with prints, you can get inspired by interior designers.

2. Furniture with flowers
The furniture upholstered with floral prints refers to the classic style and immediately confers a “weight” to the interior. If the size of the room does not allow you to “unfold”, and you really want to use floral furniture, you can look for furniture for storage with floral fronts. This option fits nicely in a small bedroom or in a hallway. Likewise, for this purpose, you can serve a single piece of furniture with floral motifs as an accent, such as an ottoman or an armchair.

3. Floral fabrics
Fabrics with floral motifs can fit into any space, but they look better when they reflect the whole concept of interior design. The feeling of nature can be easily conveyed through curtains with peonies or floral quilts. A great option for textiles of this style is those that are inspired by English interior designs, which give a classic air with their prints with motifs of the British countryside. The choices are endless: curtains, blankets, cushions, tablecloths, carpets and a long etcetera.

4. Floral compositions and interior decoration
Coloring an interior is easy, but doing it in a way that makes you feel comfortable is more difficult. If you are wary of large-scale floral decorations —such as on walls or curtains—, then the easiest option is to decorate with more discreet floral compositions and accessories: you can hang paintings in the living room, the dining room, or the bedroom, decorate the dining room with crockery and textiles with floral motifs, have painted lamps or, much more directly, use arrangements in vases throughout the house. Thus, your flowers will not only be an element of decoration, but your house will smell delicious thanks to them. There are so many ways to get that touch of flowers you want in your house, it’s just a matter of getting started.
