Its sophisticated look lends itself beautifully to decor. Check out these 20 ways to incorporate the bloom into your home. — Laura from JourneyChic
Simply Vera Vera Wang Chrysanthemum Bedding - $49.99
Vera Wang's bedding is covered in subtle flowers, and the pale but warm palette creates an inviting place to lay your head.
Fuchsia Chrysanthemum Toss Pillow
The bold fuchsia color on this pillow would be great in a teen girl's bedroom.
Patriotic Navy Pillow With Red Chrysanthemum Flower by Koula's Creative Crafts - $28.50
I love this 3-D pillow. It would add a big splash of color to a neutral sofa. Plus, I think my 2 year old would love to touch it.
Wall Stencil, Chrysanthemum
Wallpapering is time consuming and costly, but this stencil can help achieve the same look with paint. You can also use the stencil with frosted glass spray paint to turn a plain mirror into interesting wall art.
Chrysanthemum Flower Vinyl Wall Decal by 7 Decals - $29.99
Wall decals are great for letting renters make a big impact if painting isn't allowed. This version has a modern, graphic print that will add character to a boring room.
Chrysanthemum Floral Barrel Shade - $41.40
Floral fabric on the inside of this fabric shade adds an interesting glow when the light is on. Try DIYing a version for yourself with your favorite fabric.
Stacy Garcia Spice Dahlia Giclee Ceiling Light - $179.99
I have this ceiling light (with a different shade) in the master bedroom, and it is the perfect replacement for those awful, builder-basic "nipple lights." The contemporary pattern is a nice addition to a room that's filled with transitional elements.
Chrysanthemum Area Rug, Wrought Iron - $119
This gorgeously graphic rug has been on my mind lately. I want to replace my beat-up dining room rug with it, but with a toddler throwing food all over the floor, this stunner will have to wait.
Joel Dewberry Heirloom Chrysanthemum Fabric - $8.98
Joel Dewberry's fabric would look great as a Roman shade or a toss pillow for a splash of color.
Chrysanthemum Plaque, Aquamarine - $39.95
Although it is traditionally a fall flower, the bright aqua hue on this plaque makes the chrysanthemum look summery.
Cloisonne Chrysanthemum Pull - $10
I just love Anthropologie's hardware, and this lovely knob would dress up a plain nightstand for just a few dollars.
Navy Chrysanthemums - $129.99
I adore the various shades of blue in this print, and I would happily feature it above my mantel.
Chrysanthemum Neat Seat, Beige/ Brown
It's an ottoman and a seat, hides all your kids' stuff and looks pretty at the same time. I so need one for my living room to hide all of my son's Legos.
Chrysanthemum Side Table - $175
This graphic side table is incredibly cool and modern. I want to plop it down next to a brightly colored couch.
Waterford Chrysanthemum Dinner Plate
Fabulously feminine, this set of china is perfectly pink and reminds me (in a good way) of something my grandma would have brought out for special occasions.
Chrysanthemum Dinnerware - $6
For more casual dining, this Asian-style set is a lovely way to add a few flowers to your table.
Chrysanthemum Infuser Mug - $5.99
This brightly hued infuser mug is pretty enough to leave on your kitchen counter long after your tea is done — after it's been washed, of course!
Velvet and Linen Chrysanthemum Pillow by Anna's Haiku Designs
The combination of velvet and linen on this pretty pillow is a lovely way to add texture to your room. I just want to touch it.

Many floral sheers seem outdated, but the modern floral print on this soft pair is current and adds pattern to a room without being overbearing.
Giant Chrysanthemum Table Runner by Tulusa Home Goods - $52
Dress up your table with this big chrysanthemum, block-print runner. Although the graphic is bold and modern, the block printing gives it a more rustic vibe.
