A look inspired by nature can take many different forms and floral patterns can be a big part of it.
Florals on walls and wallpapers
Back in the 18th century when chintz was very popular, wallpaper started being the new way to decorate the walls. At that time wallpaper was expensive, being made of leather and silk.
