Flower Power: Bold, Graphic Florals in Home Décor

Make a huge statement – literally – with huge floral artwork. An oversized modern piece brings a great dose of edginess to a space that is tempered by the sweet, natural artistic content (the flowers themselves).

A bold, graphic floral print can be a focal point among neutrals, with grace and with ease. Choose large-scale florals for this purpose, so they don’t read as a neutral from farther away.

Area Rugs.

When you pair vivid, modern florals with contemporary pieces, the effect is cheerful, playful, and stylish. Using a few well-chosen colors from a floral area rug elsewhere in the space provides nice continuity.

Window Treatments.

Flowery print, almost suzani style, curtains add the perfect dose of energy to a sweet, all-white space. Pair with an oversized fresh bouquet on the coffee table, and the room is abuzz with positive life.
