And it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that at times we have all dreamt of traveling to faraway places, with nothing but mountains and trees all around. We long to escape the walls that enclose us, often feeling sad or frustrated by the dull colors that keep staring back. 

Even though it’s possible to travel our sorrows away, you can do something more affordable and change your interior decor. Allow us to introduce you to the world of floral wallpapers, where you can find innumerable colors and designs reminiscent of some of the world's most awe-inspiring natural wonders.

Modern Floral Wallpaper Inspiration Ideas 

1. Laundry Room

Floral prints are all the rage right now, with leading fashion designers adopting bold floral prints for redecorating different rooms of the house. An innovative technique to incorporate floral wallpapers is redecorating the laundry room with gorgeous flowers. So, you can enjoy the beauty of flowers in the garden and also be surrounded by them when inside. 

Since laundry rooms are usually small, adding a floral print will guarantee a pop of color without any supporting accessories. We recommend playing with romantic and dark hues for a vibrant appearance.  

2. Cherry Blossoms

Some home decor experts use pink and yellow detailing throughout the walls while ensuring that the shades don't overpower other features. Cherry blossoms are one of the most popular options when it comes to choosing a colorful floral wallpaper. It's especially suitable for a dining room that needs renovating as the bright colors improve the appearance of the old furniture by adding a modern twist.

3. Bold Floral Prints

A common misconception when using floral wallpapers is that the design consists predominantly of flowers which isn't the case necessarily. For instance, when redecorating your kid's room, you can create fun and whimsical animal shapes through floral prints, experimenting with different shades. You can repaint the whole space and have matching furniture, like a bright blue bookcase and bed.

Although a bit feminine for some homeowners, it's an ideal option for kids who love the outdoors. But you can use this design in any room, particularly if you don't like loud shades or if vibrant patterns won’t pair well with the interior decor.

You'll be pleased to know that the large roses deliver a lively appearance to any space having neutral colors.

That said, the soothing tones would even look gorgeous in the bathroom or living room.

17. Darkness

Has anyone told you that darkness can be beautiful? That's exactly what we are advocating here because, contrary to what you may believe, light and brightness don't work all the time. Instead, try black, white, and dark blue with floral patterns to create a mixture of grit and elegance. 

In the foreground, you can have industrial furniture to liven up the dark blue floral wallpaper in the background.

18. Pink

Any person looking for a colorful floral wallpaper would invariably think about using pink, but the trick is to include more details and less color.

In short, it's a delicate way to enhance any space, such as a country-chic kitchen or formal setting.

Another shade of green that will add depth to the walls is banana leaves, which is a Pantone color with a lush appearance. This trendy hue looks inspired in the bathroom, and we love how it contrasts with a black tub. But you can also make the rich green banana leaf decor work in any room.

We have spoken about cherry blossoms previously, but here's a different take on this design.

In the room, it would be best to have traditional furniture to create the appearance of an adult space.

23. Elephant Leaf

We have taken things up a notch with this elephant leaf wallpaper. Elephant leaves are big and create a stunning appearance even in a basic laundry room, thanks to various colors. While the predominant shade is green, you can experiment with other color gradations and install trinkets and shelves on the wall. 

This will help tie the different elements together, making your laundry room as vibrant and energetic as the rest of the house.

24. Monkey

Monkeys are considered a nuisance in many parts of the world because of their mischievous attitude, but this very nature makes them a fantastic candidate for wallpaper prints. Rather than just adding flowers or trees, you can include a couple of monkeys or lemurs on the branches. It makes for an amusing yet attractive floral print, sure to be a conversation piece among guests. 

So, to ensure that the wall doesn't escape people's attention, you can use the wallpaper in the living room, sitting room, or kitchen. We found that it works best with simple and rustic kitchen furniture.
