In the shops now is the latest Country Home Ideas magazine with my article about Summer Floral Hues. For lovers of chintz and other floral textile designs, this time of year has to be one of the best for inspiration. Judicial use of floral patterns can really add a pretty touch to an interior scheme – just be careful not to go overboard with them and ensure that you mix them with plains and/or geometric and striped designs to keep the look soft and pretty, yet contemporary and sophisticated. You can read all about it, including Dulux wall colours to match, in the article below – just double click to see clearly.
More from the beautiful Agapanthe range from Camengo and a good example of how to mix the floral patterns with plainer designs. Fresh, warm whites look great with these textiles as they ensure the look remains light and airy rather than oppressive and out of date.
I hope you enjoyed the article in Country Home Ideas and I would love to hear if you get inspiration from your garden or love to use floral designs in your home.
