Maybe it’s because I was an 80’s teenager and I loved chintz, maybe it’s because roses are my favorite flower, maybe it’s because Spring is my favorite season, but I just LOVE a good floral pattern! Artwork, fabric, cushions, bedding…you name it…if it has blooming flowers I stop and take a look. I am loving that it is making a comeback in interiors so I thought I’d provide some inspiration in case you are a fellow blooming-rose-all-things-spring-lover like myself!
As you can see my love of floral abundance was present even in my late teen years when I convinced my parents to buy me this lovely bedding that I loved for many a year. Shabby Chic was all the rage and I gathered every scrap of lace, every vintage china dish, every chintz like fabric I could afford and either displayed them in my room or hoarded them under my bed in my “hope chest” of sorts.
Now, years later, my head still turns when I see a cluster of roses and I have used them sparingly in our house as you can see here and here. But after our long, long winter, I am craving color and am currently on the hunt for some new artwork, pillows, SOMETHING to add some life to our living spaces. I picked up a cushion at Homesense this week and it really brightened up our sofa…but I want more (much to my husband’s chagrin)! So, I decided to take a look around at some retailers and see what they have to offer and here is what I found!
Can you not see one of these items adding that little bit of “spring” in your step? Pun intended 😊
Here are a few other items I found in my search. This chair from Pier 1 is for the die-hard floral lover. Thinking…sunroom? Office chair? Bedroom perch?
Then there is this amazing watercolor floral bedding I spotted at The Bay…wouldn’t it be lovely in a guest room? Or teen girl’s room? So many colors you could pull from this….it’s so refreshing!
Of course, I can’t leave out of my favorite go-to places for accessories—Homesense! Here is some Spring inspiration from their website.
This house is LOADED with color! I have to admit, as I sourced these images I came across a few photos of gray sofas with pops of floral cushions…so Canadian! (Read safe sofa choice + equally safe florals) What I loved about this showhouse is there is nothing safe about it! Filled with color, contrast, pattern, surprises…it is classy and gutsy at the same time.
Now I know not everyone can live their lives with this kind of very decorated look or saturated color, but I hope you can see these images and be inspired to freshen up a room in your home! Stop and think about it for a bit…it doesn’t have to be a whole-home overhaul…but bring Spring in this year in a new way.
I know you can do it!
I’ll leave you with one more thing…the picture of that gorgeous DIY Tulip Wreath you saw in the cover photo. Welcome Spring into your home– right at the front door!
