In full bloom: using florals around the home

Just like the world of fashion, the interior design space is very much dictated by the seasons. Florals are always a strong trend in the warmer months and are deeply embedded in the psyche of Toowoomba. The iconic Carnival of Flowers is set to begin in just a few days and is the perfect place to look for inspiration.

There are some luscious, beautiful florals out there but you don’t necessarily have to do your whole home in it. Having even a small expression of floral in key positions can really add a difference to any space.

Many design houses are offering gorgeous floral fabrics and wallpapers in a wide range of both traditional and contemporary styles. For a more contemporary twist, try the Shangri-La Lino Peony from Designers Guild Shanghai Garden Fabrics Collection. This modern floral has a hand-painted look with beautiful spreading magnolia flowers and inky graphic branches printed on a robust, textural linen blend.

For a more classic option, Sanderson’s Peony Tree in Duck Egg/Cream boasts a stunning trail of peony blossoms in full bloom, painted in a beautifully traditional style that has a timeless feel. This design offers elegant sophistication for period homes and dramatic statements for contemporary interiors.

Sanderson has long been regarded as a more traditional offering and some people may have avoided the brand because of its association with “grandma’s couch”. But that’s a mindset that’s beginning to change. The famous UK company is embracing a much more contemporary edge in recent years and offers some beautiful modern designs.
