Nothing else really epitomizes Spring decor like a floral pattern. Instead of splurging on big-ticket items for seasonal sprucing, though, I'm looking to incorporate blooming accessories for small doses of Spring cheer. It's easier on the wallet and helps to keep a space from looking overwhelmingly girlish.
Instead of covering walls with this Blazing Poppies wallpaper ($150), I like the idea of using it to line storage pieces, like a bookcase or media unit. The explosion of indigo, tangerine, red, and fuchsia almost has a painterly quality to it.
Of course, florals don't always have to be drenched in color. I love how graphic a simple black and white pattern can be too, like the one on this Gemma Mug ($6).
When I think of floral motifs my mind always goes to Marimekko. Its iconic large-scale floral patterns are reinterpreted in a new collection for Crate & Barrel. These Marimekko Ruusu Napkins ($9) are my favorite.
