Teaming pretty vases of flowers against vintage floral wallpaper may sound a bit much, but trust us, layering flowers with flowers makes for a gorgeous interior look that is fresh, stylish, easy and in-trend.
Check out these ideas and tips below for a little creative inspiration.
Tip #1: Vintage floral wallpaper can be ‘busy’, so choosing just one type of flower that picks out a colour in the paper is a great way to start.
Tip #2: Vintage floral wallpaper generally works best with vintage-era vases. Use an old mason jar if you don’t have the right vase. Or rummage through op shops for jam jars, pastel-coloured parfait glasses, crystal bowls or cocktail tumblers…
Tip #3: With feminine vintage floral wallpaper, opt for old fashioned, ‘English country garden flowers’ such as the dainty Cecile Brunner roses pictured below, rather than bold natives and exotic orchids.
Tip #4: Sometimes vintage floral wallpaper comes in out-there Seventies colours, like this bold blue print featured below. A contrasting colour such as orange, or these simple yellow ‘Billy Balls’ in a matching blue (or white) vase not only stand out against the paper, but maintain an essence of simplicity when there is so much happening in the print design.
Tip #5: If your wallpaper is from the 1920’s, for example, consider opting for a floral arrangement that is also typical of this period.
