Since visiting The Greenbrier, I have become completely obsessed with floral patterns. They’re feminine, classic, and dramatic, I mean, what’s not to love? Today, I’ve pulled together sixteen cute and affordable floral fabrics. And, at the end, I’m sharing how to choose a floral pattern that doesn’t seem horribly out of style and dated.
Aren’t all those floral prints just gorgeous?? I’ll be honest, when I tell people I’m incorporating a floral print in a design, they’re always like “Is that in style?” or “Gosh, I haven’t seen that in ages.” And yes, I’ll have to agree, some floral prints are a little been there done that, but, there are others that have stood the test of time. Here is a list of things I think make up the perfect, in-style floral print (And, of course, just like anything else there is always an exception to any of these):
1. Large Scale Patterns
2. Bold, Bright Colors (No Pastels)
3. Realistic-Looking Flowers
4. Bright, Bold Green Leaves and Stems
5. Variation of Color (Not Monochromatic)
6. Includes the Popular Cabbage Rose (Like #3 and #10)
Have a great weekend!
