There are so many different styles to choose from. Country style floral fabrics If you favour cottage style gardens then choose a print which reflects this style and look for a floral fabric which as a design of flowers such as roses, delphiniums and foxgloves within it. Ideal for use in garden rooms or conservatories. Paint walls in a pale green and keep flooring neutral and practical such as wood or tiles. If you want to soften the look add a rug which will add warmth and texture. Contemporary floral prints for a modern homeModern gardens often have more structural plants so look for a floral fabric which depicts these larger more structural plants, perhaps a botanical print fabric. Walls could be painted in a pale grey which would add to the contemporary feeling. Inspired by the countryside? Maybe you don't have a garden or are more inspired by the countryside, in this case look for a floral fabric which reflects this. There are many prints available which feature wild flowers and trees. Use as a curtain fabric or for roman blinds. Add cushions in a floral fabric to complete the look. Holidays and exotic floral Travel and holidays can also be a good source of inspiration. Mediterranean and tropical flowers are generally very colourful - think of bougainvillea and hibiscus. These bold and colourful prints look best when used against a white backdrop. If you feel they are too overpowering to be used as a curtain fabric then use sparingly for cushions and this will really uplift a neutral colour scheme. Oriental blooms If you want to go for an oriental scheme in your bedroom then choose a floral fabric which feature cherry blossom or magnolias. Use dark wood furniture and keep everything simple with clean lines. To complete the scheme use white bed linen and add cushions and throws in silk fabric.
