Majestic, ethereal, dramatic—these are only some of the words that describe the magic of dark florals. It can set the tone of a room without effort and even act as a focal point for larger spaces. To inspire you to work with prints inspired by the Dutch Golden Age, here are some photos you can use as pegs: 

For the T&B, it's best to stick to a simple color scheme to keep the space looking and feeling fresh. You can also consider cooler tones like blue for a relaxing vibe. 

Plain corners can look much brighter with patterns that resemble still-life paintings. Pick a color from your wallpaper and choose accessories in the same shade for a streamlined look. 

Make your wallpaper standout by using furniture and decor pieces in contrasting colors. In this foyer, the mustard yellow accent chair pops out from the subtle pastels on the walls. 

Polar opposites never fail to make a statement. Hang up paintings that look totally different from one another to create a focal point in your living area. 

Sometimes, matching prints work. Make your sleeping space look extra put together by using the same print on the walls, pillows, or even your closet doors. Don't forget to keep the rest neutral to balance out the look.
