On Trend: Large-Scale Florals

Prints Charming

According to textile thought-leader Patternbank—England’s edgy self-proclaimed “world’s largest online collection of textile designers”—mills from all over the world are turning out bold large-scale floral prints for 2017, from brilliant-colored prints to pale garden botanicals (think of an English Garden’s younger, hipper little sister).

How to use in your home? The key to using large-scale prints is to not overcomplicate the rest of the design. Only one piece should be large scale—it could be the sofa, a chair or even the wallcovering. The remaining pieces can be smaller scale patterns, including stripes, checks, even other florals in a similar or complimentary colorway, along with solids to anchor the patterns and give the eye a resting place.
