After this past winter’s big chill, is it any wonder that home decor is screaming florals? Below are 11 chic ways to warm up your home with some flower power.
In certain bohemian neighborhoods, you can’t throw an artisan pickle without hitting someone sporting Orla Kiely’s botanical print handbag. Her playful designs look just as fun and fresh on this set of coordinating round cake tins, perfect for stashing knickknacks, snacks, craft supplies or treats (Orla Kiely Round Cake Tins, $54/set of 5, ContainerStore.com).
These bright, over-sized blooms already made this pillow a winner, but then we noticed this extra fluffy pillow is reversible, too (Simple Throw Pillow in Poppy Love: Sunset, $88, LoomDecor.com).
CB2’s crimson-on-grey stool features an abstract, pixelated pattern that modernizes—and toughens up—the rosy motif. The stool also has sturdy, stained legs to bring out the wood’s natural beauty (Quad Floral Red Stool, $129, CB2.com).
French Bull’s boldly patterned platters promise service with style. The versatile carrier can hoist cool summer cocktails, breakfast in bed or an array of desserts (Dahlia Rectangular Small Tray, $25, FrenchBull.com).
Muffin tins may not always spur a load of excitement, but this standout piece from Camp Home’s darling stoneware and steel baking collection begs to differ. Here, rows of tiny red hearts dot the pan’s top, while flowers adorn its six portioned wells (Filomena Muffin Tin, $36, at anthropologie.com).
It’s hard to take your eyes off this stylish, sculptural timekeeper. Twelve curvy bamboo petals burst from the clock’s face, while stainless steel hour/minute hands and an eye-catching red second hand add an unexpected pop of shine (Schmitt Design Bloom Wall Clock, $268, ShopHorne.com).
Twice is nice
Grandin Road’s patterned Desert Flower fabric—a floral explosion of colors like hot pink, electric chartreuse and sultry sky blue—lights up any bedroom when used for a floral headboard (Classic Patterned Headboard, $329-399, GrandinRoad.com).
Pressed flower-like splatters impart a delightful, almost decoupage affect to Mikasa’s porcelain dish set—perfect for any spring soiree or enchanted summer evening (Mikasa Sunset Valley Dinnerware, $59, BedBathandBeyond.com).
A textured white leaf and flower motif frames Zara’s ridiculously gorgeous two-foot tall mirror. It’s the fairest of them all at any price—though we do find the $100 price tag to be extra bewitching (Floral Oval Mirror, $99.90, zarahome.com).
We can’t help but be entranced by the bold graphic design of this wood-framed print of scarlet poppies. Feeling blue? There’s a bright turquoise ranunculus print available as well (Floral Wall Art, $149 each, WestElm.com).
Bed of roses
Flowers, leaves and butterflies adorn this reversible, cotton quilt designed by Nathalie Lété, a French artist known for creating folksy and fantastical textiles, ceramics, illustrations, sculptures and more (Tuileries Quilt, $198–$248, anthropologie.com).
