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 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.
While I’m not a huge fan of tattoos, you can’t deny that this is truly a work of art on skin. (oh, and OUCH!)
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? I am currently deciding which wall I want to try it on…
