Who doesn’t love flowers? In decorating, floral patterns might seem too juvenile or girlie for the average person, but just as flowers run the gamut, so too, can the textiles they adorn. Use flowers on duvet covers, pillow shams, walls, and upholstery, or just about any surface you can think of.
Brighten your day with these five pretty bedrooms decorated in one way or another with florals.
This darling room with bunk beds keeps it neutral yet manages to introduce a small amount of pattern with a subtle floral. Clever space planning creates a cozy sleep space for two. The sconces add enough light to snuggle up with a good book or your favorite magazine in bed.
This attic doesn’t represent the typical florals in a bedroom. A wallpapered accent wall in a bold print adds a focal point in the otherwise pattern-less space. Try and imagine the room without the flowered wall.
Furnished with a daybed covered in flowered pillows, this pleasant room should feel like flower overkill, but rather, the pattern is just the right amount in all the right places. The floating footstool and bright artwork above the daybed help tie the different elements together.
Tranquil and sophisticated, this space is obviously an adult’s bedroom. Floral wall covering adds color and pattern, and ties into the accent pillows.
I adore the floral quilt with splashes of fuschia. This bright accent livens up an almost white bedroom. Perhaps a coordinating bolster would complete the look? I think so.
I would love to customize my bedroom but sadly, as a renter, I cannot paint or wallpaper. So I ended up buying a lovely bedspread in the emerald green for which I was searching (the Santa Barbara Villa collection by Tommy Hilfiger: http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTYwMFgxNjAw/z/InUAAOSwZjJU5ijq/$_1.JPG?set_id=880000500F ). To me, it has an almost Monet quality to it with its soft painterly effect. So in that unique way I bring florals into the bedroom because I don’t particularly care for most of them.
