In the world of interiors, florals never die.
Florals in interiors tend to lean towards more feminine tastes but who’s to say that they can’t work for a man den, home office or bedroom. Here’s a few ideas on how to give flowers a harder edge…
Firstly, forget roses and pretty pinks. Think more about deep, dark hues such as blacks, midnight blues and dark greens.
Keep it regimented and not too ‘free-flowing’, William Morris wallpaper has some wonderful designs such as this militant thistle motif…
A huge trend for 2015 has been Botanical and Marks & Spencer championed with their collection of flora inspired homewares. Leaf prints are a perfect departure from typical flowers and green and black is a winning combination.
It doesn’t have to be in your face either – a subtle rug for instance will add a lighter touch to your interior…
Finally, think about pairing floral soft furnishings and accessories with more traditional patterns of plaid and check for the perfect balance of masculine and feminine.
Now we’re not saying to completely ditch the pinks, oranges and yellows – hey, we personally love them. However for any guys out there wanting to bring a touch of flora to your room or perhaps your a couple trying to find a good compromise then hopefully these ideas will help you out a little.
Sending you flower power,
