You might find traditional pastel flower designs at any time, if you know where to look, but why not try some modern variants of the beloved classic patterns? Even at retailers, which in principle tend to offer more conventional design styles, one or two items are to be found in a brand new style.

Some decorative pieces with floral patterns have an irresistible quality that is hard to describe! Most importantly, do not assume that "spring flowers" have become something of a seasonal cliché. As we prove in our post, there is more to this style than you would expect at first glance ...

We start with the wallpaper Serena Natural Multi, a vital proposal from Laura Ashley. As the product description published on the stylist's website states, this sampling is a "flower design with stylish accents stylized in contemporary fashion flavors." And it really is!

The next offer from West Elm, the flower-patterned Siesta pillow case, is also chic and traditional. This may be due to the fact that the decorative piece is similar in appearance to a life-spattering watercolor, or to the fact that eye-catching color shades such as coral, pink and blue were used. The cushion cover is made of 100% cotton, the insert is sold separately.
