Dress up your bathroom with this vintage-inspired floral shower curtain from Urban Outfitters. I love the cheery blue and yellow color combo.
Floral wallpaper and fabrics are upstaging many geometrics this season. And most are vintage-inspired florals that have a watercolor and loosely drawn effect.
I think I had sheets in the '70s with the same fabric as this vintage-inspired floral tent by Cath Kidston. What a fun and girly way to go camping!
I am loving the bold botanical print featuring shades of gray, blue and olive on this chair. It would look smashing in my living room, and with a Target price tag, it is rather affordable to boot.
Birds and blossoms abound in these curtains from ModCloth. They elicit a tropical vibe that is fun and fresh for spring.
Bunting made from vintage floral fabrics is a welcome addition to any garden party. These pennant banners would look adorable in a nursery or outdoors over a food display.

Impressionistic blooms on dinnerware can be found almost everywhere this season. I love how the Floral Fusion dinnerware by Lenox is both modern and classic.
The vibrant floral upholstery on this bench paired with the sleek legs gets my heart beating in a good way. I love how the white wall and rustic flooring in the photo allow the bench to take center stage.
Everything about this tablecloth reminds me of my mom. She is a huge fan of pink and blue and rose motifs. I like the oversize florals in the corners, allowing for plenty of white to rest the eye and add a modern twist to a very classic floral pattern.
When I think of Laura Ashley, I immediately think of my floral comforter and wallpaper from the '80s. Wallpaper is back in a big way this season, and Laura Ashley still offers some great floral patterns.
