Floral wallpaper for walls: bringing nature inside

Florals are having a moment, both on and off the runways. Rich and moody garden-inspired prints have been incorporated into recent collections from acclaimed designers such as Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu. And the trend is now trickling down into home décor. Add a touch of lush romance to your interior with a modern take on floral wallpaper for walls – here’s how.

Hondarribia-Irun - Don't be afraid to bring floral wallpaper into your interiors – read our design tips.

1. Opt for bigger blooms

Avoid outdated impressions by shying away from small patterns in favour of big, bold blooms. Floral wallpaper for walls looks completely of-the-moment when it features oversized patterns and deep, baroque colour palettes. This serves as a contemporary focal point for the room when applied to an accent wall.

2. Bring the outdoors in

Complement green floral wallpaper with natural elements. Strategically arrange botanical accents like potted succulents or hanging spider plants near your papered walls to lend a mood-lifting visual interest. River stones, coloured crystals and Himalayan salt lamps add to the eclectic, nature-inspired theme.

3. Contrast with negative space

Dramatic and eye-catching florals work best as an accent in an otherwise airy room. Contrast striking chinoiserie with surrounding negative space to let the work speak for itself and avoid clutter. This keeps the décor bright, sleek and wholly modern. Paint the remaining three walls a light, neutral colour to draw the eye in to the pattern.

4. Juxtapose darkness with light

Dark floral wallpaper for walls provides an exotic focal point for any room, particularly when used as an intriguing interplay between light and dark. Look for prints that position light pastels or vivid primary colours against a black background to evoke the warmth of a still-life painting.

5. Go for the gold

Gold and black are a classic combination for interior décor, and also form a dynamic duo when it comes to wallpaper. Golden buds against a dark or light background look best when illuminated with natural lighting. Continue the theme in a living room with metallic vases, a rose gold coffee table and gilt-framed paintings to tie it all together.

6. Play with textures

Inky green floral wallpaper makes a natural pairing with rustic, touchable soft furnishings in a room. An earth-toned long-pile carpet, velvet throw pillows or bohemian tasselled blankets invite visitors into the sitting room with a vintage-tinged, sumptuous atmosphere.

7. Mirror the trend with furnishings

You can continue the romantic floral theme by looking at design opportunities apart from the wallpaper. Flower-patterned window treatments, upholstery or decorative boxes offer a touch of the botanical trend without the long-term commitment. Alternatively, you can play up the theme with contrasting prints in furnishings and floral wallpaper for walls – just use a complementary colour palette to avoid clashing.
