I think it is easy to do florals oh-so-wrong, but done right some nice flower power can totally add an amazing punch of awesome to a space. Here's a lovely collection of floral inspiration I curated to brighten your winter (and soon to be spring) days:

Mmmm the wallpaper, the rip, the hilarious rotary phone.
|Etsy $24 here|
I love a good cheese plate. Is that knife attached? Amazing.
|Etsy $16 here|
These mugs are just bursting with fun, and are so much better than your typical matching mugs.
|Etsy $18 here|
This tea towel has been in my favorites for a long time. I love the colors and the stylized shapes.
|Emily Henderson here|
My collection would never be complete without some Emily Henderson. Loving the rich combination of quilted floral blanket, jewel tone velvet pillow, and colorful flowery pillows.
|Etsy $15 here|
Ok, I don't know if this Pyrex design is meant to look like flower petals, but that's all I can see. So darn cheery.
|Etsy $12 here|
Also can't resist throwing in one of our own items. These lunch plates are crazy fun!
|By Etsy artist Linda Monfort - $320 here|
This abstracted flower painting is so cheerful. Just imagine it in a colorful gallery wall.
|Etsy $22 here|
This vintage floral pillow is dangerous, because it could be styled very wrong on a grandma sofa, but in a modern space with some more graphic throw pillows it could be amazing.
|By Etsy artist Geninne - $30 here|
This print is just awesome. What a great melding of elephant, bird, and flowers. Beautiful watercolor texture and colors.
|By Etsy artist Katie Vernon - $20 here|
We love this Etsy artist. Gorgeous illustrations, combining intricate florals with animals. This whale is my favorite.
|Anthropologie $88 here|
So much texture in this awesome Anthro pillow. I think this would look amazing in our living space. Want. But... I refuse to pay that much for a pillow. I just can't do it.
|Etsy $28 here|
Coolest saucepan ever, right?!
|By Etsy artist Lucy Snowe $22 here|
This artist has some really nice modern botanical photos that are super simple and colorful in the best way.
|Etsy $20 here|
I love me some crazy vintage art. It's like Van Gogh's Sunflowers, but totally different at the same time. This could be done up in a gallery wall in a very good way.
|Anthropologie $148 here|
Oh, Anthropologie. Why are you so amazing? The only thing I don't like in this picture is the comforter, but I barely even notice it because that large scale floral wallpaper is so epic.
|Emily Henderson here|
A fantastic combination of Emily Henderson and Joy Cho. Gold metallic gold floral wallpaper? Go, Joy, go!
My thrifty addition to this collection. This is a close-up of my very own umbrella (complete with classsy u-shaped crook handle in that same wood-like plastic as the tip shown), which I bought at a yard sale last summer for a dollar or two. It makes every rainy day that much better.
|By 20x200 artist Amy Jean Porter - $60 here|
Striking graphic flora and fauna print from 20x200 is just cool. It does symmetry in a good way.
|Etsy $25 here|
The things you can find on Etsy... this vintage crate paper garland is epic. I bet it even looks good all folded up. If I had a garden to have parties in, this would decorate my garden parties.
I just couldn't help but end with this guy. What's not to love about this flower-encrusted VW Bus??
Is the weather pre-maturely spring-y wherever you are? Looking forward to flowers and green leaves on the trees? Have you found a good way to work florals into your decor? Or are you one of those totally-opposed-to-flower-designs kind of people?
