Big, bold florals have been trend-spotted for this year and it is a unanimous vote: florals are a wonderful way to bring the color and pattern to your rooms. From fresh cut flowers on your table to floral accent pillows, just a little can liven up any space in the house. Or, you can go all in by layering floral fabrics, pillows, art and wallpaper.

Not just for porch swings anymore!
