Can there be too much of a good thing? When it comes to florals, some designers say no. It seems that flowers never go out of style – it’s just the way they’re presented. Check out these ways to mix florals in your own home, from easygoing to a bit more daring.

Flowers to match floral wallpaper:

If you love flowers, why not go with more? The live bouquet blends beautifully with the watercolor flowers in Brewster’s Claressa Blueberry pattern — from the Catalina Watercolor collection.

Pillows and artwork to match floral furniture:

Who says florals can’t be whimsical? Look no further than this collection of pillows, accessories, and artwork. On their own, most of the pieces have classic looks, but the combination creates its own unique style.

One final floral inspiration:

Each floral is different enough that they all seem to work together in this stunning photo by Lisa Cohen. Not sure what it would feel like to live in a living room like this, but it certainly makes a statement!
