Ask a Designer: Florals return to decor

BY MELISSA RAYWORTH ASSOCIATED PRESS After years of simple solids and geometric prints, the lowly flower is making a comeback in decor. Floral patterns have been blooming all over fashion runways in recent months, and they are slowly finding their way back into the world of home decorating, too. It wasn’t long ago that any mention of floral upholstery or wallpaper brought back memories of 1980s cabbage roses, flowery Shabby Chic borders stenciled high on bedroom walls, and suburban homes designed to feel like precious cottages swathed in pink and green. But today’s new patterns aren’t your grandmother’s florals. And they can be a refreshing antidote to the minimalist patterns that have dominated home decorating in recent years. “It’s what we’re all craving,” says New York-based designer Jon Call, founder of Mr. Call Designs. “It’s romance, it’s a softness ... and it feels fresh again, because no one has defined it for our generation.” While brands like Laura Ashley delineated the floral look of a generation ago, the new florals have no rules. Which makes them more fun — and more challenging — to use successfully. Here, Call and two other interior designers — Betsy Burnham of Los Angeles’ Burnham Design, and Brian Patrick Flynn, executive producer of’s Spring House series — offer advice on working with this fresh crop of floral patterns.

tional 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, gender-neutral room.

WHERE TO USE IT? WHAT SIZE? “Scale is the most important factor in modernizing the look and feel of florals,” says Flynn. He suggests avoiding flowers that are depicted at their actual size. Instead, pick patterns where the flowers are bigger — between 50 percent and 200 percent larger than life-size. Call agrees: He’s a fan of using vintage prints in “the largest scale you can find,” so that the print’s eye-popping size contrasts with its traditional style. But Call and Burnham also think floral prints can look modern if they’re printed on a very small scale, especially if they’re used on smaller items like throw pillows.

WHICH PATTERN? Find a floral print that really 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 tradi-

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.

WHAT COLORS? 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.

What replacement windows are right for you? COLUMBUS, OHIO — When it comes time to replace the older windows in your home, make sure you consider selections that add both style and returnon-investment to your house. “There are dozens of different types of windows on the market today,” says Matthew Minerd of Simonton Windows. “The choices can be daunting. Start by researching the type of frame material you’re looking for, and then move on to the type of energy-efficient glass insert that will serve you best, such as doubleor triple-panes of glass. “You can’t go wrong with requesting ENERGY STAR® qualified windows and seeking out windows that have the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) Gold Label Certification. Those are some of the best made windows on the market today. Vinylframed windows are also considered of high quality, because they offer strong insulation value and low long-term maintenance.” To help you determine which replacement windows are right for you, consider this checklist offered by the experts at Simonton Windows: Tip #1 – If you live near an airport or in a busy neighborhood, request laminated glass or double-paned windows to help reduce noise transmission into your home. Glass packages such as impact-resistant SafePoint™ glass can help deter noise while also helping to protect your home from burglary attempts. Tip #2 – If your home was constructed before 1978, make sure to hire a window replacement expert certified in lead safe renovations (see Many homes built prior to 1978 had lead-based paint on the exterior and in the window cavities, so it’s critical to use a qualified window contractor to remove that paint when windows are replaced. Tip #3 - Select vinyl windows with unique options, like those found in the Decorum® by Simonton series, to add style and decorative appeal to your

home. With this product line, you can choose exterior window frames in Brick, Tan, Pine, Driftwood, Cream, Chocolate and Bronze colors. And, you can request interior frames in woodgrains of Antique Cherry, Contemporary Oak and Maple. Tip #4 – For hard-to-open window locations (such as above a kitchen sink) replace existing windows with a Garden window. This mini-greenhouse style features dual, fully-operational casement side windows that crank open to bring air and sunlight into the room. As a bonus, you can grow small plants on the shelves or use the space for displaying collectibles. Tip #5 – Consider replacing older Single or Double Hung windows with easier-to-operate Casement, Hopper or Awning windows. These crank-out windows are less stressful on aging backs and hands because they require no lifting action. Slider windows also operate easily and can be a good option. Tip #6 – Comparison shop before purchasing replacement windows. Make sure to research a company’s history, industry achievements, the product warranties and the reliability of the product line before investing in windows for your home. Tip #7 - Make certain to purchase

windows with sturdy, easy-to-operate locks to secure windows in the home. For added security, order impact-resistant glass in windows. And, for decorative appeal on the inside of the home, consider the hardware options of Brushed Nickel, Oil-rubbed Bronze, Polished Brass, Dark Bronze and Antique Brass that are available in the Decorum by Simonton product line. Tip #8 – Make sure the replacement windows you select meet or exceed industry standards set forth by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC). These tests assure that the windows meet stringent qualifications for thermal, air, water, operating force and structural performance. Tip #9 - For ease of maintenance, order windows with vinyl frames. With vinyl window frames, like those from Simonton Windows, you never need to worry about upkeep such as the scraping and repainting hassles you have with wood frames. Vinyl windows resist rotting, decay, insect infestations and provide years of effortless beauty in the home. Tip #10 - If selecting Double Hung windows for your home, make certain to request those that have sash that tiltin for ease of cleaning.
