05 Apr A Magazine Spring Inspri – Floral Wallpaper
It just isn’t spring without florals. Every year as the weather warms up and we cast aside our winter neutrals in favor of bright splashes of color, the classic print becomes new again. This year, consider celebrating flowers on a larger scale than a new sundress or throw pillow.
Floral wallpaper is having a renaissance. Gone are the busy, fussy collages of cabbage roses we’ve come to associate with our grandmothers’ living rooms. In its place come bold mural-scale designs, delicate watercolor renderings, and sharp modern botanicals. Set aside the long-standing, and perhaps well-deserved, design stigma. Today there are floral offerings to fit a range of contemporary design aesthetics. We’re feeling particularly inspired by the offerings from Anthropologie this season. Keep scrolling if you dare, but be prepared for the sudden urge to create a floral accent wall.
If you’re looking for a way to bring the stark beauty of the desert into your home without the kitschy southwestern arts and craft vibe, this wallpaper is exactly what you’ve been waiting for. A pattern of blooming cacti and other succulents is a subtle nod to to our desert climate, and a way to bring the outdoors in (without risking the safety of nosey pets). Cactus Spirit Wallpaper is available in coral or turquoise.
If a small, repeating pattern is just too busy for your taste, then consider the Rosella Mural. The single, large-scale design is ideal for an accent wall. Delicate shades of pink and green create a soft watercolor mural which is both modern and feminine. At 108 square feet, Rosella can dress up a living or dining space, or even create a dramatic bedroom backdrop in place of a headboard.
Elegance doesn’t always have to be serious, and Natasya Wallpaper is pure whimsy. Smiling spotted wildcats play hide and seek among fantasy flowers. A palette of pink, green, blue, and gold creates a delicate pattern that doesn’t feel heavy or overbearing. Anthropologie recommends professional consultation and installation to perfect this intricate pattern.
