Patterns, bright colors and florals are usually perfect accessories and extensions for summer. Whether in your wardrobe or in your home, florals create a fresh and positive atmosphere, and work all year round!
Lately I have been thinking of adding some liveliness and texture into my home decor by possibly incorporating wallpaper. And these gorgeous florals from Anna French caught my eye. Anna has been making her own bold and colorful fabrics and wallpaper since 1976, updating Victorian-inspired patterns with 21st century materials like low-VOC papers, natural/synthetic blends and modern metallics. Her Wild Flora Collection is very girly, full of pastels and absolutely dreamy.
I love the detail in Anna French’s Wild Flora Collection, and the soft tones in the white wallpaper, with less contrast than others, it appeals to me for a bedroom wall perhaps. Ooh I imagine any of these patterns would look wonderful on a wall behind the bed, replacing a headboard or even behind a simple headboard. Get creative, and create your own rules! I can also see the patterns in this whole collection being used in fashion and accessories, I would love a skirt or dress in these pretty florals.
This collection might not appeal to everyone, and initially I would think that it would be too much for me and my living room. But, how about another room in the house? Or maybe in one section of a room? That way, if you only use wallpaper on one wall to create an accent wall, especially if it’s very decorative, it would reduce the intensity and make the pattern feel less overwhelming. Would you use floral wallpaper in your home? Does this style appeal to you?
