A Blue Floral Pattern: 20 Decorating Ideas For A Classic Home

Saffron Marigold - Updated: October 3, 2023

Midnight Lotus

A blue floral pattern remains a beloved mainstay in classic home decor. If you love all things chinoiserie and cobalt blue, you’ll love our Midnight Lotus block print. Create beautiful interiors with blue floral prints for the bedroom, living room, kitchen, dining room, and bathroom.

Awaken to a timeless blue and white bedroom

A white bedroom is a pillar of classic home decor, but a pure white bedroom to be a bit too stark for your liking. In that case, if you adore classic interior design, consider creating blue and white bedroom. A perennial favorite, blue induces relaxation, which makes blue a great color for decorating your bedroom.

You don’t have to paint your walls blue (although that’s not a bad idea!). Make the bed with a blue bedding: use a blue duvet cover or floral duvet cover in cold weather. Switch to an elegant blue bedspread when the weather warms up. Add metallic accents for traditional style; bring in natural textures and materials for a boho spin on the classics.

Mix and matching blue floral patterns with Saffron Marigold

If you love your Midnight Lotus linens, then you may want to consider pairing pieces from our other collections for a mix-and-match look. Here are a few foolproof matches that you can incorporate alongside Midnight Lotus right away:

Saffron Marigold

Royal Mansour

Blue and white decor can always use an extra dose of white to make the blues stand out in a most beautiful way.  Look for white linens that carry a pattern that’s not too busy, like the kind from our Royal Mansour collection. Pair Midnight Lotus with this white-on-white medallion print for a look that’s crisp, bright, and airy.
