Florals

I LOVE floral fabric. Like, really love it.

I know it's not everyone's bag, so I thought I would post some images of vintage or vintage-inspired floral fabrics used in big and small ways in different rooms. It's not always overly feminine.

If you like your florals loud and proud, try using them on some bigger projects, like upholstery, drapes or a skirted table:

Maybe you're not so bold? How about a floral pillow or two?

{Psst! I've got yards and yards of floral fabric in my stash that I'll be putting up for sale on my side bar today or tomorrow, so keep an eye out for that.
Post coming soon...}

My parents owned this hideous floral pattern living room set, and I think that left me permanently scarred. But I do like some of those photos, especially the very last one. My friend recently decided to reupholster some wingback chairs in a floral fabric, and I think I'll find the finished product palatable. She's using this fabric: http://www.interiormall.com/cat/nsample.asp?ID=132296&t=801

I think I am a very fussy floral appreciater, but the covered bedhead, the lamp and the little lounge chair were stunning... just my cup of tea!

I totally share your floral love! I am obsessed with them. I love it when people go really bold with them on furniture and drapes. Loved the pics.

I'm not usually a big vintage floral kinda gal but some of these pictures have inspired me. Great finds! I'm loooooving that chunky distressed mirror.

I love the green floral chairs in the first picture! Love a big floral print on a sofa or chair rather than keeping it safe with a floral pillow.

I like floral as well. I like mixing styles and floral in a modern space is always a nice contrast.

i have some pretty floral fabric that has been stashed away in my closet....i secretly and praying that i will have a girl (sometime in the future) so that i can use it...b/c my hsband has vetoed it out in our bedroom! thanks for all the inspiration of where i may be able to insert it without making it too girly!

Jennifer said...

love florals too, but generally have a hard time living with pattern for too long. they also usually get vetoed by the manly-man I share my house with. fun to look though!

Teresa said...

if you have yards and yards of that fabric on your header... then I WANT it!!!!! I Locw florals as long as they have either a slight vintage feel or contemporary colors... its the only way I can get those 80's florals out of my head!! tlhobg@aol.com

I went through my floral phase(when Victoria Magazine had just come out) and get seem to go back, but I really loved seeing all you beautiful images!

ampersandity said...

i particularly love those pillows from style court.

Kristen said...

I want to be Maria Von Trapp and wear those ABT drapes. :-)

Large print florals are the best! I'm using a fun coral colored one in my eldest daughters room redo right now. I thought it would be hard to sell her on it but it turns out, she's a floral girl too. Yeah!

Nancy@marcusdesign said...

Very pretty and fresh, a perfect post for the beginning of spring!

deluxa said...

oh man, what a great post! i didn't even realize it was florals, and i'm not even a big ole floral fan. nice work!

Paddywack Designs said...

Funny you blogged about this... I just added a floral to my bedroom blinds and I'm ecstatic with how it turned out... Can't wait to see your stash.

I saw two of those side tables at a local Salvation Army for around $15 each.

I love florals! I have been a bit scared to make a mistake, but I'm now going to go ahead and reupholster my ottoman in a large scale floral fabric. Wonderful pictures!
