Mother nature has always been a powerful muse, and she is definitely casting her spell over the latest wall coverings, fabrics and accessories. Florals and botanicals are in full bloom, whether the aesthetic favors subtle pastels or bright blossoms popping on a black background. And because you can’t have flowers without them, bees and butterflies are also appearing on fabrics, wall coverings and accessories. One floral pillow mixed in with other patterns or solids (as in this serene bedroom) can deliver blooming style without reminding you of your grandmother’s chintz.
