If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s that some type of floral pattern will always be in style. And they’re even more prevalent in spring – especially this year. “We can hear Miranda Priestley’s dripping sarcasm now: Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking,” mused Country Living.
But today’s floral trends are a far cry from your grandmother’s busy, tightly patterned situation. Instead, it’s all about big and bold, and the trend is hitting hard for those who want to make a statement on one wall, or more.
This Ellie Cashman Design “dramatic, large-scale floral wallpaper is inspired by the still life paintings of the Dutch Golden Age,” they said. “Majestic, ethereal blooms cascade down a dark, shadowy background.” The wallpaper appears as part of Elle Décor’s April Edit: Large-Print Florals (Their edit also includes dinnerware, placemats, and pillows, along with several fashion pieces.). “The April Edit is devoted to all petals, pistils, and stems,” they said. “A fresh bouquet, literal or figurative, marks the start of spring like no other. But beyond adding a fresh spray wherever counter space allows, plant a seed in your wardrobe and on your wall, too.”
This black-backed print helps an entry come to life.

We also love that you can incorporate this trend into your home even if you don’t want to make such a semi-permanent commitment. There are numerous peel-and-stick options that will give you the look in an easily removable material, like this one from Etsy.
