10 Ways to Make a Room Bloom
Make Spring Come Early With Fresh Ideas for Florals
While most of the country is still deeply entrenched in winter weather, I'm ready for a little spring! A great way to bring a bit of sunshine into your home during all year is to include floral prints in the design scheme of your rooms. While this might conjure up thoughts of your grandmother's house, floral prints are often a key element in updated homes featuring modern charm.

Rooms that mix two distinct prints can be visually dynamic. Here is a room that does just this through floral drapery panels that are mixed with a large scale zigzag rug.
Layla from The Lettered Cottage adds a dose of floral by covering just the seat cushion of a settee. The look is fresh, charming and unexpected.

And then of course, the best kind of floral to bring into a room are flowers! A room simply feels happier when a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers are arranged in a vase.
This floral wallpaper is dark, but paired with a bright yellow floral duvet it creates a dramatic look that feels right in any season.
A white and tan floral wallpaper hung on a feature wall adds a great deal of interest to this restful bedroom of whites.
A fresh spirit can also be brought in through leaf prints, as Lauren from Pure Style Home has done in her boy's bedroom. The lively print works perfectly with the colors of the room and the graphic rug design.
