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.

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.
