Bright florals home trend

Bright floral living room

No longer are floral patterns reserved for country-style or traditional homes; our Ideal Home Show Shop tips will help you use florals as part of a contemporary look. The perfect partner for neutral, white or pale grey walls and floors; this blank canvas can be brightened by adding bold floral prints. Add block colour pieces of furniture around the room in complementing colours to your floral pattern and dot vases, lampshades, tea lights and picture frames to coordinate your colours.


The modern floral look

To keep your floral style contemporary, use a rich charcoal sofa which will emphasie the bold colours in your cushions. Combine geometric patterns with hand-painted flower designs while adding some texture with contrasting fabrics such as velvet. Extend your pattern from your cushions by add a feature chair covered in a watercolour-inpired bloom print finished with a block colour cushion for an eye-catching statement.


Contemporary floral accessories

Create focal points around the room by adding shelves to display your trinkets and ornaments. Keep the exterior of the shelves the same colour as your wall but use bold shades of aqua, raspberry and mustard yellow to paint the inner back to draw the eye to your display. Fresh houseplants will make an interesting seasonal addition to your shelves and surfaces, but keep them contemporary by using silver galvanised or copper planters to hold them.
