TREND ALERT: Flower Power

Big, bright, bold blooms are definitely having a moment in this summer’s newest wallpaper and fabric designs. Found in both traditional and contemporary homes, botanically-inspired textiles and papers are no longer shy wallflowers. They are hot, hot, hot! Forget what you thought about florals being old-fashioned and grandma-esque. The new designs could not be more of the moment. Here are some of our favorites.
