Do you love floral patterns, but want to avoid old-fashioned looking decor? Not all flowers are created equal. Don’t worry, modern floral wallpaper designs are not your granny’s floral patterns. There are many ways you can make a home look chic and updated while keeping a floral charm. Here are some ideas:
Monotone prints for subtle floral designs
A fresh take on floral designs includes monotone prints to avoid splashy and overwhelming florals. Bold patterns can still look modern when rendered in tones that are similar in color. A grey and white print of poppies looks updated — instead of outdated.
Plain furniture against floral patterns
To avoid overwhelming guests to your home with a heady bouquet of florals, choose plain furniture for a room with a bright floral print. The contrast of neutral furniture will make floral wallpaper pop without adding business to the room.
Floral wallpaper for kids’ rooms
Floral wallpaper can also grow along with children in the house. A floral print for a girl’s room can be feminine in pink, but still have grown-up shades of black and green. The perfect print in florals can be appropriate for a young lady without being too girlish.
Panels can break up floral patterns
Have you fallen in love with a bold floral print but worry it will be too much for a whole wall? Keep in mind you can always break up the floral print by adding panels that will frame the florals like artwork. If you have a room that is already paneled, florals can add visual interest.
Make the room appear taller with climbing patterns
Just as a rose climbing a trellis makes an appealing picture in the garden, floral wallpapers that appear to climb up the wall can make a room appear taller. Heighten the effect by choosing wallpapers patterned with morning glories or other flowers that grow upwards.
