Floral Wallpaper Is Back!

Floral wallpaper is no longer ancient history — it’s a modern option for any room in your home.

You might be surprised that this design has made it back into the spotlight, but withhold judgment until you see the beautiful selection of prints available in an array of colors and styles.

Not Your Grandma’s Wallpaper

When you think of floral wallpaper, you probably think about the old wallpaper with yellow flowers that your grandmother had. The idea of it makes the interior designer inside of you cringe just a little.

Newsflash: Times are changing once again. Yes, floral patterns fell out of style for a few decades, or even a generation or two, but they’re coming back around, and you can be in on this trend if you jump on it right away.

The patterns you’ll find range in color, style and size. You can go with a more traditional, “fine art” look, or you can skip the vintage and find a modern, bold option. Once you open yourself up to the idea, the only remaining tasks are to make sure you fit the pattern to the room and learn how to decorate on top of this style of wallpaper.

Getting the Size Right

The right wallpaper design has the potential to open up a room. On the other hand, it can also make a room seem claustrophobic if the pattern is too busy.

If you have a product option you like and it has a big design, consider hanging it on one wall as an accent rather than overwhelming the room by putting it on all four walls. It may be too much for a smaller-sized room to handle.

Also, consider your choice carefully before you opt to go with a bold choice. While it may look great now, the bolder the design, the quicker it’s likely to go out of style. Make sure you’re 100 percent comfortable with your decision.

If you aren’t, you can still use the wallpaper design you have your heart set on, just don’t hang it in a common living area. Use it in a bathroom, bedroom or even a closet.

Decorating with Floral Wallpaper

After you hang floral wallpaper, you may begin to panic. Can your paintings and other decorations still be used without clashing?

The answer is yes, you just need to thoughtfully go about the decorating process in order to achieve a refined, polished effect. For example, mount all of your paintings and pictures on wide mats within the frames. This thick border helps the viewer differentiate between the art on the wall and the art inside the frame.

Focus less on hanging pictures and more on hanging objects as decorations. Sculptures or a shadowbox filled with objects make for gorgeous touches with a floral backdrop.
