In the 1980s floral chintz became a popular trend that was being used throughout every room in the house! We saw it on walls, sofas, window treatments and even ceilings! As new trends developed, floral prints became known as more of a formal and somewhat stiff look.
After a couple decades passed, this sought-after look from the 80s made a comeback. Today we are seeing floral prints that have grown into a looser, more relaxed version that fits in nicely with today’s modern trends. The newer floral prints tend to be more large scale with vibrant blooms and big, bold hues. We are also seeing bold, geometric flower motifs and ethnic floral patterns.
These new oversized floral patterns make for a great main accent in any room. They pair well with textured solids or subtle stripes.
