3 tips for decorating with florals

Now that spring has sprung, it's the perfect time to use elegant and feminine floral prints in your home. Just remember to follow these helpful tips: 

  • Mix and match: The notion that you can't mix prints is so ten years ago! Nowadays, designers are combining floral patterns with other bold prints. And yes, you can mix various floral designs together in your home. The key to pulling the look off is to make sure that each print shares a similar background color.
  • Subtlety is key: You don't necessarily have to decorate your home like a fairy princess to use floral motifs. Sometimes less is more. "An elaborate rose-bouquet print on a broad expanse conjures fairy-tale grandeur. But you don't have to go that far," writes a blogger for Real Simple. "Tiny buds on a bedside lamp shade or a quilt bring the same sort of enchantment without sending the message 'No boys allowed.'"
  • The sky is the limit: When it comes to decorating with florals, it's best to think outside of the box. Just because your room already has an established design scheme doesn't mean you have to shy away from using florals. Simply find an underlying color in your space and then choose a floral print with this common ground. And don't think that florals always have to be feminine. When done in neutral or bold hues, they can also be quite edgy!
