August Trends Floral Notes

From the red carpet to interior design, tropical floral patterns are in full bloom.



Retro Petals

This summer, some of the best and brightest floral patterns mix classic prints with new shapes in design or contemporary twists on old favorites. Barely-there bikinis take a break this summer while trendsetters sport high-waist lines and full tops on the beach. Bright and bold colors look great against neutral backgrounds like skin or nude wall color. Floral packs a punch in jewel tones and retro-inspired design.

Color Bouquet

Taking a less literal approach on the floral trend are graphic pieces that evoke all the best parts of this season’s flora with a graphic twist. Mix and match different flower-inspired pieces to create something truly unique. From interior accessories to leafy jewelry, nature never looked better.
