Florals Are Blooming Again in Interior Design

Why you ask?

In a recent Wall Street Journal article cleverly titled “Fleur to Ceiling,” writer Yelena Moroz Alpert, suggested that “after decades as pattern non grata, floral motifs are budding again in interior design—letting the Covid-weary and technology fatigued bring ‘nature’ indoors.” The late Mario Buatta, legendary interior decorator selected in Architectural Digest’s Top 100, loved floral chintz fabrics so much he became known as The Prince of Chintz. He was friend of Decorating Den Interiors and use to attend many of our events. He’d be heralding today’s return of flower power in spaces.

Wallcovering on one wall can provide both a gorgeous focal point along with a contrast to other non-patterned décor (above left).  Or, using floral draperies with co-ordinating bedding gives this home guest bedroom an inviting feel and a touch of whimsy.

Florals are wonderful for brightening up a small bathroom.

One of our LIVV Home Collection wallcovering suppliers reports they had a more than a 200% growth in floral wallcovering sales in the last two years. We saw more and more florals in upholstered furnishing as went through the most recent Home Furnishings Market in High Point, N.C.

The Covid home-boundness certainly made us reconsider our home environment. Florals create a welcoming and cozy feeling. Who doesn’t like to look out the window in the morning and see new flowers in bloom?  Many of us have returned to the workplace and are now craving to make our homes that happy place.

If you are interested in exploring different ways of introducing florals into your home decor or are considering a renovation of any kind, contact us at NUVO DESIGN STUDIO. Call us today or feel free to book your own Introductory Phone Call to get started right away.
