10 floral decorating ideas

By: Jennifer Weatherhead Harrington
Whether it’s pint-sized daisies on decorative cushions or larger than life poppies dotting your walls in the form of art, there’s no mistaking an interior designer’s love affair with florals in every state and form. Pretty, feminine and artistic florals brighten up every room, nook and cranny, bringing the outdoors in. Unless you’re a huge floral fan, a few florals are really all you need to add interest to your space – it’s easy to go overboard and cross the line of stylish into tacky. Here are our favourite floral finds!

2 Cushion cover
For a softer approach to bright florals, opt for a watercolour feeling. This cushion cover is elegant and vibrant all at the same time and would be perfect settled on a chaise next to sunny window. Cancun Floral Pillow Cover, $36.38, West Elm. floral-decorating-showercurtain.jpg
3 Organic shower curtain
Your bathroom decor needn’t be neglected when it comes to florals. Surround your claw-foot tub with a chic and sophisticated floral-print curtain that has an organic vibe. Juliana Floral Organic Shower Curtain, $88.59, Pottery Barn. floral-decorating-kvittra-box.jpg
4 Stackable boxes
Storage solutions just got a pretty upgrade. Stow away memorables and keepsakes in adorable stackable boxes that will look pretty sitting in a corner, rather than being buried in a closet. Kvittra box, $4.99, ikea.ca. floral-decorating-floral-dishes.jpg
5 Island dinnerware

You can’t go wrong with a classic navy and white place setting, especially with this bold summery print. Somerset Island Floral Dinnerware, $70, thebay.ca. floral-decorating-floral-quilt.jpg
6 Cozy quilt
Who does feminine and florals better than designer Kate Spade? (We’re also huge fans of her stripes and polka dots.) Make your bedroom garden-perfect with a chic quilt like this floral one. Kate Spade Floral Quilt, $460, thebay.ca. floral-decorating-wallpaper.jpg
7 Bouquet wallpaper
Go big and go bold by decking one full wall in oversized, old-fashioned bouquet wallpaper pattern. It’s a statement for sure, but definitely an ultra pretty one. Viola wallpaper, price upon request, designersguild.com. floral-decorating-salad-plate.jpg
8 Salad plates
Subtlety definitely has its place when it comes to design and is a safe yet elegant approach to adding florals into your decor. A simple white serving plate with a black etched bloom is the perfect way to start to embrace florals. Mercer Bloom Salad Plate, $10.21, Crate and Barrel. floral-decorating-rug.jpg
9 Geometric patterns
If you’ve already experimented with florals here and there, but still love a simple, minimalist design, opt for a large and chic rug in neutral shades and a geometric floral print. Moderne Floral Rug Swatch in Graphite, $30, restorationhardware.com. floral-decorating-photo-frame.jpg
10 Life-like print
Calling all art lovers – go for the real thing when it comes to florals in your home thanks to a life-like print of your favourite wild flower (we’re loving the late summer vibe to this Queen Anne’s Lace print). Perfect for the home office, powder room or a quiet sitting area. Queen Anne's Lace Flower Print, $62.83, Beneath Northern Skies on Etsy.com.
