Choose pillows, table settings or wallpaper with floral prints as a way to decorate for spring.
Decorating inspiration comes from many different places. One easy source is the fashion runway where fresh ideas and classic looks often collide for great new styles.
This year, one of the hottest fashion trends for spring is flowers whether in bold, punchy colors or simple, muted patterns. After months of cold weather, welcome spring by decorating with flowers inspired by look straight from the designer runways. These five tips help incorporate beautiful blooms into every room of the house.
Buy Floral Print Pillows

#2. Yellow Billy Ball Flower Pillow in Natural Linen
Throwing pillows on the sofa, chair or floor is one of the easiest ways to add new style to a room. They are functional and inexpensive (compared to other decorating changes), and they come in a variety of patterns, colors and sizes.
Expect to find floral print pillows in stores with bold, bright blooms, small Liberty prints and single graphic flowers. Some pillows come in flower shapes complete with ruffles for petals.
Use any of the pillows to add a dose of spring to the current style of living rooms. Place long pillows on sofas for support and use smaller ones in interesting shapes or with interesting embellishments to accent any piece of furniture.
Larger pillows with floral fabric work on the floor to encourage casual seating.
Use China with Floral Patterns

#10. Purple garden lilacs in blue chinoiserie vases
#11. Blue and white dynasty ginger jars

One quick way to use a trend in home decorating is through tableware and other serving dishes. To incorporate spring’s fashion trend on the table, mix in new pieces with existing china, opt for inexpensive place settings from stores such as Target or invest in a few pieces that can still be used after the trend has lessened.
If mixing floral elements, choose several smaller pieces for big impact. A fabric table runner is the perfect way to bring fashion into the home, while salad plates and interesting napkin rings draw attention to the trend.
If using flowers on everything, keep the table (cloth covering) neutral, and choose pieces in the same color family with different size graphics.
Consider Flower Print Wallpaper
#1. Dark Floral Wallpaper
#2. Wild flowers removable wallpaper
#3. Vintage Floral wallpaper
#4. Floral Wallpaper – Gracie Blooms
Although a bigger and more costly step than buying new pillows or drinking glasses, choosing new wallpaper brings a dramatic change to a room.
There are many new options available in wallpaper, and using it is a great way to add color and interest. To avoid decorator’s remorse, stay away from the flashy flowers prints seen on spring runways and choose softer colors and graceful patterns.
If an entire room filled with flowers on the wall seems too much, consider wallpapering just one wall, which would provide a great focal point in a dining room or bedroom. Floral wallpaper also works great for foyers, bathrooms and girl’s rooms.
Decorating for spring is easy when taking cues from the fashion runways. Flowers are spring’s hottest runway trend. It is easy to incorporate them into home decorating with pillows, table settings and bigger design changes such as wallpaper.
