4 Unique Ways to Style Floral Decor

Florals have gone beyond their traditional reputation and are now being used in all sorts of decorating styles. From glam to retro-chic, these 4 fresh ways to decorate with floral prints will have you looking at blossoms in a whole new way.

Bright & Airy

A plain white room with white furniture can instantly be transformed with a bright floral rug. Choose one with saturated color in a contemporary pattern, then accessorize with pillows that both build from and complement the rug’s hues. For an added pop, paint your ceiling!

Edgy Eclectic

Traditional floral patterns get a shot of edge when done in wallpaper with a black background. Create a vignette on a small wall or entryway with a large-scale black floral wallpaper, accenting it with eclectic accessories and a zebra print ottoman or bench.
