Floral patterns are such a classic look for the modern home, and not just for spring! You can incorporate floral patterns in your home all year round. But if the word 'floral' reminds you of stuffy, older homes, then you're not alone. Floral patterns have been recycled through new trends in almost every decade. But that doesn't mean that floral patterns have to fit the retro 70's or Victorian-era style.
Choosing the right floral pattern for your home comes down to colour and size, but also remember to complement your patterns with your solids in each room. You'll want to pick floral patterns that also draw on one of the accent colours of the room so they don't look out of place. Consider sizing, too — a larger floral print may be too bold for you, while others might prefer the funky, retro look of a bold floral. Smaller floral patterns are quieter and may be easier to match with your home.
Whichever type of floral pattern may interest you, we've put together plenty of inspiration for you to get a better idea of how floral patterns can look in a modern home.
