Floral-Prints-5-CopyFOR that decoration that gives a garden and restful look, think of floral prints. They have remained very much in use because of the invigorating colour and cheery designs they lend to a space.

You may decide to have the floral appeal in just a few pillows or used as wallpaper, drapery fabrics, upholstery, and accessories.

Floral-Prints-3-CopyFloral-Prints-1-CopyThose who crave for garden look in the home should consider some tips for using strong floral patterns in interiors.

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.
