We’re not here to tell you about floral pillowcases or vases of flowers because you know that already. There are other ways to add floral designs to your space.

Spring is here! With Spring, comes flowers, a feeling of freshness, and new things to come. Here’s how you can inject flowers and floral elements in unexpected ways:


A lot of clever design is about contrast. The hardness and functionality of hardware like doorknobs, coat hooks, and faucets juxtapose well with the softness and of flowers.

Plaster Moulding

Incorporate subtle florals into your plaster moulding. Consider white floral trims to border a dark-coloured wall – the contrast is amazing! If you don’t like too much of an ornate ceiling or wall, then opt for a floral ceiling cornice to highlight lighting like a chandelier.

Speaking of walls, go bold with a floral wallpaper. For a lighter touch, go for smaller floral patterns, lighter colours, half-walls, and feature walls.

Floral shaped light covers and lamp shades are a subtle way to use floral elements in the home. Flowers don’t necessarily mean romantic or feminine, an abstract floral light cover suits a modern interior.

Dividers, screens, and partitions with floral patterns or motifs are another subtle way to add flowers to your home. Since the design is intricate, simplify by keeping the divider in a neutral colour. Use it as a divider or as a wall accent-slash-headboard!
