I noticed something very upsetting about my apartment today: it is severely lacking in the floral print department. I do have an excuse: I have three yards of an outrageous chinoiserie floral sitting in the corner of my guest room waiting for a purpose, so I don’t want to go out and pick anything else till I use that. That’s rational and prudent. But still, it doesn’t mean I don’t like to torture myself with the knowledge of all the other gorgeous prints out there.
And the world is on to me it seems. While I was researching this post, I came across an Etsy shop, Englishfabric, that sold vintage fabrics and mentally noted it. A few hours later, I got an email from the shop owner, offering to sell me some vintage fabric I posted about a long, long time ago. My “brand” appears to be the floral lady and I am completely fine with that.
So these are my favorites as of late. I limited the selection to larger scale florals and non-vine prints. Floral vines, while lovely, have less versatility because of their strong vertical orientation (they’re great for curtains, but tricky on pillows or furniture), but allover florals or bouquets can work in a variety of applications. #FloralScience
