Using on-trend winter florals
Irrespective of the season floral prints adorn our homes, whether you prefer big bold prints to create a chic contemporary look or prefer them small floral prints to use in a modern or traditional interior, winter florals capture warmth and bring colour into your home.
You don't have to be governed by the typical colours associated with autumn-winter such as golds, deep reds, burnt oranges or forest greens to use floral patterns in the winter – this year's on-trend colours of Olympian blue, Chartreuse yellow and Teaberry all make ideal colours to use in living rooms, bedrooms and dining rooms.
It may be wise to use floral fabrics with pale creamy backgrounds if your rooms are small as this will ensure that the pattern doesn't become too over-powering – you could also break the mould and opt for interior designer's new approach to deliberately using darker background colours with pale floral designs in small rooms and even on the ceiling if you want to make a real statement in your home.
Floral patterns lend themselves beautifully to bedding, duvet sets and window dressings. You could also give your windows another layer of insulation during the colder months by adding a Roman blind made from a pretty floral fabric which compliments your décor. Similarly large rugs with a floral design, cushions and throws with a single bloom can be used to bring a wintry look to your home without it become dull and staid.
Keeping the style of the floral print in keeping with the style of your home makes logical sense and will bring cohesion and balance to your home. Why not up-date your soft furnishings this season with the latest winter florals they're so gorgeous they'll see you through winter and into next spring effortlessly.
