If you’re like a lot of people, you love floral prints, but feel a little skittish about mixing and matching them. This is one interior design trend that is here to stay so we have put together a few helpful guidelines for your consideration:
- Your floral fabrics and wallpaper should complement each other but they do not have to match. To get this look, pair a wallpaper with a diffused pattern in a neutral base color with bright accents and a small, tight floral fabric in one of the same bright colors. The floral fabric will highlight the wallpaper and unify the different patterns.

- Select a basic color palette for your home and stick with it. A refined palette may embolden you to pick florals you otherwise would have passed on, such as floral paisleys. This room works well because the paisley motif picks up on the accent colors in the wallpaper. Be sure to choose a wallpaper with flowers and vines that mimic those found in the paisley fabric.
