Floral patterns are back. So, all you minimalist aficionados cover your eyes and wait for the trend to pass.  From Indian florals to Liberty style, or vintage and large floral patterns, you can your pick from an amazing selection available today. For intense or dramatic effect, a floral wallpaper is effective by covering a focal point, a wall, a niche or maybe just a corner of a room.

Wallpaper is not the only privileged choice for the floral pattern. Fine bone china plates, napkins, paperweights to name a few are some of the items that can be found decorated in this trend.

The styles vary, romantic, arts&crafts, bucolic, bohemian, oriental but the statement is clear: flower power.

Beach Party

Annette Funicello Beach Culture
File-This 1965 file photo of youthful actors in a Hollywood movie amuse themselves between shooting of scenes at California’s Malibu Beach by staging an airborne twist exhibition on top of a surf board. Annette Funicello helped create a world as fanciful as Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom when she traded in her Mousketeer ears for a modest one-piece bathing suit . It was a land of perfect waves and sparkling sand, in a place where there was a beach party every night and summer never ended. (AP Photo, File)

Over the next year, the turquoise fiberglass structure—designed by Finnish architect Marri Suuronen in the 1960s and recently restored by artist Craig Barnes—will be open up to the public for performances, talks and events on the roof of the Central St. Martins Campus in London.

When Suuronen designed the Futuro House in 1968, it was originally conceived as a mountainside cottage ideal for its simple transport, with low maintenance needs and sloped sides that could shed snow easily. source : fastcodesign.com
