Floral motifs in decorating are nothing new, but the florals being used today are anything but old-fashioned! Today’s floral bedroom ideas are big, bold, and bright. Gone are the small-scale prints and muted colors of decades past. Even florals with dark backgrounds à la 1980’s are back in style for 2016.
Gone too are the old rules regarding decorating with florals. Go ahead and mix in other patterns, such as stripes or geometrics – or even other florals. Don’t be afraid to use oversize prints or neon colors.
Use contemporary floral wallpaper to bring interest to an accent wall. Stay on trend with watercolor-inspired, painterly floral fabrics.
Whether you decide to go with wallpaper, bedding, fabric, or accessories, the following floral bedroom ideas will provide inspiration and show you how to incorporate modern floral designs into your master bedroom. Look out, these are not your grandmother’s florals!
