I’ve been crazy busy these last few weeks and have been neglecting my blog (and newsletter, sorry!) and this Trend Alert post on the resurgence of big florals in interiors has been percolating for way too long! And not just florals, but FLORALS in call caps. Inspired by the Old Dutch Masters paintings (Holland, roughly 17th and early 18th centuries) we are seeing big, bold and beautiful still life works adorning walls in larger than life size scale. And I love it! And, we’re seeing these bold florals not just on walls either.
Lots of beautiful wall murals are now available from sources all over the world:
Art imitating life imitating art.
Kohler has also gotten into the act. They produced a series of vignettes which featured over scale wallpapers. I love this bathroom.
But this kitchen – not so much. Talk about way, way too much going on! The floor is the worst part, but since Kohler own’s Ann Sachs, it’s never a surprise to see tile in their vignettes – even when they don’t work. At. All.
But these new Artist Editions Dutch Master sinks – these are working for me. Gorgeous, no?
What do you think? Could you live with HUGE flowers looking over your shoulder? Here’s my dream home bedroom with some big wallpaper!

Linda: You might be interested in coming down to NC next year for the Museum’s Art in Bloom show! Are you familiar? Here’s the link: http://ncartmuseum.org/calendar/series_parent/art_in_bloom
I went the very first year but have been away each year since…it is fabulous! And some of the programs are great. But talk about florals! It is amazing to see the arrangements inspired by the paintings.
Think about it: I’ll be here and we could play! Anyway, yes, I am fascinated by the large florals; I think those stairs are beyond dramatic!
Hi Libby – I’m not familiar with the Art in Bloom show – will check it out, thanks! And yes, those stairs are amazing. I just also realized that my postage stamps feature huge florals as well. It’s all around us!
OMG Linda! You have collected so many fabulous visuals. I’m loving the big florals. Loving them!
Hi Jeri – There were so many amazing photos online to pick from! Loving them all!
The laundry room is the perfect room for the blooms since husbands don’t linger too long in that room. I’d love that laundry room. Happy Easter weekend Linda.
