Let's face it, when many people think of floral wallpapers they often think of their grandparent's house. Although these wallpapers may remind you of your childhood are outdated, some of them did have some charm. Further, I have had the opportunity to see hand-painted wallpaper in historic houses and they were downright stunning. We are well into 2016 and I am happy to state that floral wallpapers are back and there are some lovely designs out there that are more charming than ever.
Beautifully illustrated and feminine, this wallpaper would be lovely in a hallway powder room. Imagine a silver leafed framed mirror in front of it. There is just the right amount of floral and negative space so this pattern does not feel stuffy or overdone. Bonus, this is a "peel & place" removable wallpaper - perfect for those of you that live in an apartment.
The peachy pink floral pattern designed by Rifle Paper Co. is complemented by a metallic gold. Perfectly feminine, fun and whimsical for a little girl's bedroom. This pattern may be too much for the entire bedroom, but picture it on the wall behind a clean white headboard.

Delicate and subdued, this wallpaper would be stunning in a formal dining room. Sometimes I recommend that wallpapers be used as a compliment under a chair rail, but in this case the repeat is so large that the wallpaper begs to be installed along the full height of all walls in the room. Paired with an elegant dining table - lovely.
