We’ve all heard the saying “April showers bring May flowers,” this got us thinking. What makes floral print have so much staying power in both fashion and design? Regardless of how you feel about floral print it’s hard to deny that floral print has been around for ages and it doesn’t look like its uprooting (get it?) any time soon.
3 Day Blinds has a great selection of floral print fabrics in a variety of colors, but enough about that, today’s fun comes in trying to match the flowers in the fabrics to flowers in real life.
So this one was a little tough. There are so many pieces to this fabric and we tried to go for matching the branches rather than matching the exact flowers themselves. We found some purple bells and decided that was close enough. What do you think?
Even though we know for sure there are no hydrangeas in the above fabric (addison delfit) we love hydrangeas. A lot of other flower enthusiasts do too so how could we pass up the opportunity to bring some cool color into the blog.
While this might not feel like an exact match the look and feel definitely compliment one another. When choosing fabrics for your window treatments you don’t necessarily have to have the exact flower in your garden to the window treatment you are looking to design with. Get a pattern that matches the look at feel of your garden and you’ll be smiling for years to come!
This orange chrysanthemum screamed at us to pick it when we matched it to our giverny goldenrod pattern. The resemblance is uncanny.
So how’d we do? Let us know your thoughts on Facebook and Twitter.
