Five ways to use floral fabric effectively

Bring the fresh, natural beauty of the outdoors into your home with floral fabric.

From dainty cottage prints to bold botanicals, there’s a print to suit every home. 

Use painterly prints for laid-back chic

Painterly prints take their inspiration from artists such as Monet and are ideal for bringing a unique style to your home. Their large, striking designs can be especially stunning when used in contemporary rooms. Try mixing prints of different sizes for a look that's stylishly quirky and casually coordinated.  If you’re using floral fabric for curtains or upholstery, it’s best to pick out one colour for your cushions and keep them plain.  

Try dainty florals for a cottage vibe

These pretty designs work well in country-style schemes and small rooms where large prints may seem overwhelming.  Dainty pastel florals mixed with a striped fabric give a relaxed country style. Or try a vintage floral fabric for a more rustic feel.

You can use floral curtain fabric in any room but these subtle cottage-style prints work particularly well in bedrooms. Paired with crisp white bedlinen, they’ll bring a fresh feel to your rural home. 

Go bold with vivid florals

Large floral designs in vivid colours tend to work best in a contemporary setting. Choose a bold floral curtain fabric as your starting point, then pick out an accent colour for accessories such as cushions, rugs and vases. For the walls, stick to a bright white or calming neutral so that your fabric is the star of the show. To ensure the scheme isn’t overpowering, choose wooden flooring or a plain carpet and add a rug in your accent colour.

Be brave with botanicals

Botanical prints are a fresh take on floral fabric. Used for curtains or to upholster a statement chair, they’re ideal for brightening up your home. Botanicals tend to be a strong print so keep your backdrop neutral. Natural flooring like wood, coir or sisal will complement your scheme. 

Life your garden scheme with floral fabric

Using floral fabric outside can add colour and style to any garden. The key to success is choosing a fabric which suits your garden scheme. If you have a cottage garden bursting with foxgloves, roses and delphiniums, pick a dainty floral print or vintage floral fabric that echoes this style. Or if your garden is more contemporary with large, structured plants, choose a bold, botanical print in a foliage design.

Try dressing your seating area with tablecloths, cushions and bunting. And if you have a summerhouse, add some roman blinds. They’ll look stylish and help keep you cool in the summer months.
