There’s no denying that flowers and spring go hand-in-hand. After all, there’s a reason we still quote Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada when she sneers, ‘Florals for Spring? Groundbreaking.’

But while florals might not be seasonally groundbreaking, they remain extremely on-trend – and this year, according to the experts, it’s going to be a coveted interior design trend. Rather than large-scale contemporary flowers or overly saturated prints that skew retro, this year, everything’s coming up pretty, frilly, and extremely feminine.”  

“Flowers, in particular,  in 2023, are in almost every popular aesthetic, either maximalist or cottage. The traditional design is cycling back into fashion in the most wonderful way. Goodbye, monochromatic neutrals. Now, more than ever, we see gorgeous, layered spaces, a mix of prints, patterns, and colors. Flowers are GOOD STUFF.”
