Florals Are Blooming Again in Interior Design

After decades of floral patterns being plowed under in interior design, they are blossoming again in many spaces. Wallcovering on one wall (shown above) can provide both a gorgeous focal point along with a contrast to other non-patterned décor.

One of our LIVV Home Collection wallcovering suppliers reports they had a more than a 200% growth in floral wallcovering sales in the last two years. We saw more and more florals in upholstered furnishing as went through the most recent Home Furnishings Market in High Point, N.C

Upholstery, draperies, and bedding also have returned to showing floral patterns.

In a recent Wall Street Journal article cleverly titled “Fleur to Ceiling,” writer Yelena Moroz Alpert, suggested that “after decades as pattern non grata, floral motifs are budding again in interior design—letting the Covid-weary and technology fatigued bring ‘nature’ indoors.” The late Mario Buatta, legendary interior decorator selected in Architectural Digest’s Top 100, loved floral chintz fabrics so much he became known as The Prince of Chintz. I had the privilege of meeting him twice and have a signed copy of his book.  He’d be heralding today’s return of flower power in spaces.

Using floral draperies to complement a dark solid wall and solid area rug that gives this home office a special flair.  The floral upholstered chair adds a touch of whimsy.


Floral pillows are natural for accents.


How nicely the floral art brings it all together.


Florals are wonderful for brightening up a small bathroom.

The Covid home-boundness certainly made us reconsider our home environment. Florals create a welcoming and cozy feeling. Who doesn’t like to look out the window in the morning and see new flowers in bloom?  Many of us have returned to the workplace. Why not come home to a bouquet of flowers?

We’ll be glad to assist you if you would like bring nature into one of your spaces. Give me a call or send an email.
