Floral prints and wallpapers have been around for a long time and do not go out of style, returning season to season with new characteristics and designs. They are seen all over in fashion through jewelry, clothing, or bags and throughout interior design with textiles, wallcoverings, and tableware. Floral patterns are so versatile with traditional patterns, geometric styles, and lace patterns that are elegant and glamorous. The options are endless, which is what makes floral prints such a timeless staple in your interiors.

For a traditional look, this Asian inspired bird pattern is the perfect option that has simpler details than the traditional patterns to give it a vibe that is still traditional but not dated looking. It has a vintage feel in bold colours that will help add vibrancy to your interiors.
FLORAL WALLPAPER TREND: GEOMETRIC
For a very contemporary interpretation on floral wallpapers, refined geometric patterns are great mixing modern geometries with abstracted floral references. The large scale repetitive forms are graphic and bold bringing a playful nature into your interiors and are a very on trend way to add floral hints into your design. Geometric prints have been a big design trend adding intriguing depth with simplified forms, great for creating that stand-out feature wall.

Stripes are also a fashion forward style for your walls that creates a real sense of glamour when re-imagined as a floral pattern.

FLORAL WALLPAPER TREND: LACE
Lace wallpaper patterns have a vintage feel and are very romantic, classic, and elegant. The all over tight knit pattern keeps the lace from overwhelming the space that has a light airy feel.

Larger than life floral patterns can captivate you and take over an entire wall which brings in lots of depth and dimension for a shocking surprise. They can take over your space and transform your entire perception of space.
