It is tempting to write something about these daring floral designs “not being your grandmother’s chintz.” But it some cases they are your grandmother’s chintz. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
The blossom print has come a long way since Louis XIV, also there are lots of daring, contemporary floral designs on all manner of things, from carpeting to walls. But there’s no reason to take sides. Bold blossom designs are stunning whether traditional or contemporary, all around the place or sprinkled reasonably. They could fit in everywhere. As always, it is dependent on how you utilize them.

This glowing yellow flowered wallpaper is cheerfulness on a roster.

I am a giant fan of mixing up things, and this room certainly does that. It’ll be just a moment before a daffy old Englishwoman brings you some tea.
Only a hint of chintz. The throw pillows on the seat add a feminine, welcoming touch to what looks like quite a comfy room.

An accent wall done in a superbold poppy wallpaper adds color, texture and also a lot of character to this room. It is nice to see an ocean-view room that is not all blue and beige.

The pattern with this Flower Quince wallpaper from Clarence House is so subjective and daring, it almost looks like splatter artwork.

Completely buttoned up and totally wild at the same time. This giant, blown-up chinoiserie pattern is so stunning.
Even with this yummy wildflower paper, this room is contemporary eclectic all of the way. (It likely has something to do with the bombshell within the mattress.)

Now this is devotion. Flowers, flowers everywhere and curtains that fit the walls. It is Grandma’s room on steroids.

Why don’t you add a wall of flowers to your midcentury modern living room? It can help to soften all of the angles.
The Lettered Cottage
There’s no need to go all out. Keep it easy, with just a little splash of flowers (covering the chair has much more effect than a few throw pillows).
