This unusual wallpaper stays clear of "sweet" hues and provides a neutral but eye-catching backdrop for the balance of monochromatic white furniture. Yes the wallpaper does all of the work, with a little help from the brilliant addition of a coordinating (but NOT matching) pillow.
Subtle yet substantial, a floral rug is a perfect way to discreetly add softness and interest to a room. In this setting, the ground of flowers is one of many ways nature incorporates into the space.
In this country chic setting, the bolder floral is limited to clearly-understood perimeters, finishing off the flea-market vibe of this room with subtle coordination.
Adding florals in an unexpected way gives the concept freshness. As in successful sartorial ensembles, a room that is coordinated and then has something slightly . . . off creates a feel of natural (and not-too-deliberate) style. This customized cushion is perfect.
Since florals are so distinct and can easily overpower, proportion is key. All it takes here is a hint of floral to draw in the retro colors on the shelves.
Florals done in unconventional colors also gives freshness and, in this case, grown-up softness. The floral pattern here acts as bedding and wall accents, contributing to and not overtaking the entire room ensemble. LOVE the plates blending into the wall.
Sometimes it only takes a small splash of floral to finish the look of an entire space. The tone of this simple pillow coincides perfectly with not only the whole porch area, but specifically the flowers and meal service.
Here this bright Italian-esque print provides all of the visual interest necessary. The streamlined surroundings keep the space from being too loud.
Here's a wider view of the space and the balance created between pattern and blank space.
This floral wallpaper offers plenty of pleasant balance between the dark background and the large blooms. This pattern works so well not only because it avoids any natural flower colors, but because those browns, creams, and blacks integrate so well throughout the space.
