Warm weather might be on its way out. However, that doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to bedroom design styles featuring dark, dim colors and dull, staid patterns for the remainder of winter. If you want to remember the days of bright skies and beautiful vegetation, it pays to consider one of the many floral comforter sets currently appearing in the marketplace. From classics like roses and leaf patterns to less-common looks like daisies, peonies, violets, and pansies, there are plenty of bedding options to help you appreciate the Great Outdoors. At Latest Bedding, we’re passionate about helping all our customers get to sleep in style. Read on to learn about the top reasons to love floral bedding along with tips on choosing a set to make you smile.
There’s a reason that floral bedding has long been a favorite among style-minded home designers. Throughout mankind’s history, people have used flowers for holidays, rituals, cooking, art, and weddings. Moreover, many people choose to give flowers as gifts for special occasions. If you want to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or achievement, a bouquet of flowers is a natural choice.
Additionally, flowers are scientifically proven to have a positive effect on your mood. It’s no secret that most of us are living busy, fast-paced lives these days with little time to stop and take in the view. According to research out of Rutgers University, flowers and other elements of nature can help boost emotional health by promoting feelings of happiness, gratitude, and satisfaction with life. Additionally, florals can affect social behavior, including the ways in which we interact with friends and loved ones. If you want to live a life with less stress and more joy, incorporating flowers into the bedroom may be a good way to start.
Elegant and timeless, florals come in a wide array of sizes and styles and work for people of different ages, genders, and tastes. These days, there are even more masculine floral comforters featuring darker hues for purchase. Whatever your goals, we’re confident you can find the right option for you.
One of the reasons that floral comforter sets continue to enjoy great popularity is that they can be customized based on your tastes and desires. Whether your preferred look is fresh or feminine, traditional or trendy, cool or classic, there’s a collection to meet your needs. Some of the latest offerings are even reversible, so you can switch between the comforter side with the floral print and the one with a solid hue. Here are just a few of the floral bedding styles currently drawing attention among savvy shoppers:
Are you the type who cries at weddings and sappy commercials? If so, a romantic floral pattern may be the ideal look for your bedroom. These prints can include soft colors like blush pink, mauve, lavender, and lilac. Additionally, romantic floral comforters tend to be sweet and elegant. They’re a great choice if you want to bring some sensuality back into your bedroom.
What do you think of when you hear the term “French country?” If you’re like most people, you probably imagine carefully designed gardens bursting with an array of brightly hued flowers. Maybe you also think of sweet-smelling meadows, rich farmland, and cozy cabin homes tucked away in pastoral settings. Incorporating a little French country bedding into your home is a great way to satisfy your wanderlust without ever leaving home.
Then again, maybe an organized, well-structured garden isn’t for you. If the untamed beauty of nature is what sparks joy in your mind, consider a floral comforter set with a more playful design. We especially love bedding with wildflowers like poppies, daisies, and sunflowers. Stretch out under your new comforter and imagine you’re napping in a beautiful sun-drenched field.
Florals clearly have numerous benefits to our health and wellbeing. However, one of the biggest benefits of buying a floral comforter set is that it saves you time on shopping. When you choose a luxury comforter collection from Latest Bedding, you can expect it to come with some of the following components:
Comforter: The key component of any bedding collection, a comforter is a thick, quilted bedcover that keeps sleepers warm year round. These bedding items may be composed of down or man-made fibers, and they come in an array of colors, textures, prints, and patterns.
Sham: You probably already own cases for the pillows you sleep on each night. However, the most beautiful beds include additional pillows placed in front of the ones for sleeping. Luckily, the average luxury comforter set includes decorative shams for these pillows that feature fun design elements such as trims or cording.
Bedskirt: The underside of a bed typically isn’t the most attractive place in the room. Whether you use this space to stow out of season apparel or extra blankets, a bedskirt or dust ruffle is key to concealing this area from prying eyes. That’s why it’s a common component of your average comforter set.
Euro sham: Some luxury comforter sets include extra bedding pieces to take your decor to the next level. In particular, many collections include Euro shams. These decorative casings for square pillows are typically placed behind standard pillow shams or above your normal pillows.
Sheet set: While it’s less common, you can on occasion find a comforter set that includes a complete set of sheets. Along with a full sheet and flat sheet in the same size as your comforter, the set comes with two coordinating pillowcases.
Of course, choosing to decorate with florals is only step one. You also need to know how best to style your floral bedding and decor so your room looks cohesive and complete. Here are some tips for successfully styling a space with florals.
If you opt for a floral comforter set, then this will almost certainly be one of the centerpieces of your bedroom. There’s really no wrong answer when it comes to selecting your new bedding. Whether the comforter has a floral pattern that’s subtle or bold, bright or pastel, playful or calming, there are plenty of options from which to choose. Ultimately, the goal is to select a pattern that makes you feel a sense of peace and joy when you walk in the door.
Of course, the flower motif doesn’t have to end with your choice of bedding. One of the best ways to celebrate the beauty of the outdoors is to incorporate florals into your wallpaper. We’re especially fond of removable wallpaper, as you or a future homeowner can take it down without damaging the walls beneath.
Does the idea of papering your walls with florals feel a bit too dramatic? A flower-printed headboard can be a fun solution. We especially love how a floral headboard adds both romance and drama to a space. If you don’t have a headboard, a painting featuring flowers or plants looks great when hung over the head of the bed.
Speaking of hanging a painting over the bed, art is a great way to bring the beauty of the natural world into your bedroom. These days, a number of designers are opting for gallery walls, which feature a collection of paintings of different shapes and sizes. Consider unifying the group with coordinating picture frames.
Who ever said florals had to be frilly? On the contrary, darker floral prints are having a big moment in the home design world at present. Bid pastels goodbye and opt for dark, moody shades like deep red, maroon, plum, and even navy and evergreen. Some people even choose black and white floral prints, which are sure to catch the eye.
If you want to accent your floral bedding while turning your room into an indoor garden, consider placing some actual plants around the space. Not only will this greenery brighten up your space, but it also adds much needed oxygen to your home, helping you and your family stay healthy. Don’t have a green thumb? Silk or artificial plants are a great choice as they don’t require cleaning, watering, or repotting. So you’ll get to enjoy the beauty of your greenery all year round.
Most people are familiar with more traditional floral prints. However, the term “floral” is constantly evolving, and these days a wide range of patterns can meet the definition. We’re talking about anything from roses to tropical flowers and palms, evergreens, and even ivy prints.
So how do you go about selecting a floral print bedding set that fills you with joy? From cheerful to classic, gothic to gorgeous, here are some of our favorite designer comforter collections available through Latest Bedding:
