1. Watercolor flower prints
Watercolor is a technique of painting in which colors are diluted by water so that shapes and colors are blurred. The result is printed full of beauty and with a special charm that can be seen at a glance. We feel transported to a dreamlike world full of beauty as if it were a dream.

2. Japanese style floral prints
Many of these Japanese flower prints are inspired by the designs of traditional kimonos and the traditional flora of Japan. In fact, some flowers are especially revered by the Japanese, as in the case of Sakura (cherry blossom) or poppies that are repeated a lot in their designs. The bold combinations of colors characterize some of these prints, which still always maintain an aesthetic harmony.
This type of floral print can be found from ceramic fabrics for cushions, sofas or traditional furoshiki, stamped square fabrics that are used to transport all kinds of objects, from gifts to bottles. A traditional way of wrapping gifts or transporting objects that have been declining but is back in fashion.
We can also find wallpapers with beautiful Japanese floral prints that will fill our walls with mystery and charm. Perhaps one of the most repeated reasons is cherry blossoms, an expression of Japan’s sensitivity and its attachment to nature. From cherry branches to full flowering trees, it is one of my favorite floral prints.
3. Liberty or small flowers
We call liberty to small floral prints that offer an incredible variety of prints through a very wide palette of colors. Its origins go back to the year 1939, when Arthur Liberty, a British merchant, set up a textile company called Liberty & Co that makes his small flower fabrics famous. Its department stores are still one of the most famous establishments in London and a must if you want to know about the origin of these fabrics.
The shabby chic has made this type of print indispensable but we can find it in all kinds of environments since it has a very feminine and sweet touch that combines with almost any style.

The cushions are also an ideal way to introduce it at home in small doses and give a special charm to our sofa or armchair.

Our walls also surrender to this type of exotic prints and full of life with large flowers that transport us to the Amazonian or African jungle as small and green earthly paradises in which to get lost.

If there is an element that characterizes this style and that cannot be missing is the naturalist plates.
