Restful Floral Look
You may decide to have the floral appeal in just a few pillows or used as wallpaper, drapery fabrics, upholstery, and accessories.
Floral prints can be handled without much fuss in decorating because they have in them patterns that allow for easy construction of a colour scheme.
Added to these, most floral patterns feature a range of shades and colours that co-ordinate easily with a variety of solids, mini-checks, plaids and stripes.
Go for floral patterns that will co-ordinate with colours already in use in the home. For example, dark green carpeting will go with a floral with pretty green leaves.
Strong patterns should be balanced with liberal amount of plain surfaces, on walls, floors, sheets, or curtains. Sometimes, just a little can go a long way.
An easy way to construct a colour scheme is to choose the background colour of a floral pattern for the paint colour of the room.
Then look carefully at the floral to decide on the secondary and accent colours.
In general, the secondary colour will be pleasing mid-tone that might used throughout the room in things such as pictures, vases, and tiebacks.
When using floral chinaware for a table, keep the linens in a plain check, or stripe pattern so as not to take away from the china’s colours.
