FLORALS From Page 1C

appeals to you personally, Burnham suggests. “Nothing corny, nothing ordinary,� she says. You want “something really special.� You might try “chinoiseries that include figures and florals,� Burnham says, “or flora and fauna... That’s a way to do it if you’re kind of scared of just flowers.� Another option is choosing a pattern that’s more “botanical� than flower-filled. “Homeowners with aversions to super-girly florals featuring rosebuds or elaborate petals may find botanicals a better fit,� says Flynn. “While floral prints include shapes and silhouettes of actual flowers, botanicals rely more on stems and leaves.� Call points out that designers like Vivienne Westwood have created digitized, pixilated floral prints that mix traditional and modern style. But, he says, even the most classic chintz fabrics can look great in a modern home if they’re handmade and high quality. Flynn encourages clients to mix floral patterns with other prints. “The floral cottage style of a decade ago was all florals and ribbons,� Flynn says. “Anytime I’m dealing with a home occupied by couples arguing over masculine and feminine styles, I’m likely to mix botanicals or florals with classic masculine prints such as gingham, check or plaid.� That juxtaposition of “classic girly prints with iconic patterns used for men’s spaces� creates a modern, genderneutral room.

Affordable navy blue prints from Ralph Lauren and John Robshaw mix for a more gender neutral look.

This industrial kitchen uses floral wallpaper from Graham & Brown. Flynn says the trick to using florals is to choose over-scale botanical fabrics rather than traditional florals with small pattern repeats.

Layering patterns pack this master bedroom with classic style. Flynn says the trick to mixing floral prints is all about a range in scale, using one small, one medium and one large pattern.

Traditional floral wallpaper is contrasted with modern furniture and unexpected accessories like a bike helmet and a vintage Japanese poster for the movie “Sabrina,� to create a fresh and edgy look.

Floral patterns can work especially well on sleek, modern pieces of furniture, Burnham says. Rather than choosing a floral sofa that’s rounded and tufted, use floral upholstery on a simple sofa with straight, clean lines. And rather than hanging floral draperies in a bedroom or choosing a floral bedspread, use solid colored fabrics in those locations and then upholster the headboard in a bold, oversize floral. Accessorizing with floral pillows or throws is another way to bring some blooms into the decor.


A great pattern can look dated if you pick the wrong color palette, says Flynn. “Florals with mustard yellow and burgundy palettes instantly feel old and stuffy. To make them fresh and fun, look for those with unexpected color palettes, such as black and violet or springy greens and punchy pinks. The pattern will keep its classic appeal, but with a youthful update.� Burnham says floral patterns done in just two colors (or in two shades of the same color) can look more modern than florals that include several colors. And “if you go for something on a crisp white background,� she says, it “might read more current than something on a tea-dye that’s more muted.� Call’s thinks just about any color can work, though he prefers to steer clear of pinks and purples. “It gets too sweet, too endearing,� he says. You have to “be careful with the sentimentality,� he says, or you’ll lose some of the modern edge.
