home: trend [ big blooms ]
Floral prints are always a popular choice, especially around this time of year. Spring brings flowers and colour which in turn brings joy and positivity into our lives. This is then replicated in the home with our interior choices. This year its the same, although now the prints are bolder, bigger and more colourful.
Florals have often felt quite old fashioned and it can be difficult to know how to use them in the home. A great place to start is with soft furnishings; cushions and rugs in a distictive pattern mixed with more plain colours help bring this trend in a subtle way. Mix different floral prints together for a bolder look or with other patterns like stripes and geometric [ see previous trend post floral x geo ].
Large floral images look great framed as pieces of art, and just having a few of these around the home or placed together on a wall can create a subtle nod or full on statement to this trend. Go even more bold with a mural wallpaper or an allover patterned sofa. The wall becomes a piece of art on a larger scale and can bing drama to a room and a floral sofa is fun and quirky, making all your guests smile when they enter the room. Go one step further and match your sofa with the wallpaper, for a full on statement.
However much floral you fancy investing in, remember it can be young and cool and no longer Mumsy, so enjoy it.
