1. Bedrooms

One of the most popular rooms to decorate with florals for the summer season is the bedroom -- your primary bedroom, guest bedroom, even your kids' rooms! Start by changing your bedding. Floral print quilts or floral sheet sets can add a touch of summer to any bedroom. Look for light, airy fabrics in shades of white, cream and pale pink for a fresh, romantic look.

Take it a step further with accessories like floral printed throw blankets or floral shaped decorative pillows. You can also add some plants or a bouquet of fresh flowers to your bedroom to give it an extra touch of summer charm.

2. Living Room

One of the easiest ways to add a touch of summer to your living room is with floral prints. Florals are timeless and can easily be dressed up or down to suit your style. Whether you prefer abstract prints or more traditional florals, choosing a pattern in shades of blue, green or yellow will help to brighten up the room and add some seasonal color.

Floral furniture protectors or sofa covers are great options for adding a timeless floral print to your living room. Plus, they protect your seating from spills and other stains if you host a gathering in your home. Window treatments like flowery valances or flowing window panels are also wonderful options because they're easy to change often and typically inexpensive.

3. Kitchen

If you're looking for a way to add some life to your kitchen, why not try a floral wallpaper or a stunning floral backsplash? It can really brighten up the space and make it feel more welcoming. When choosing a new wallpaper or backsplash for the kitchen, think about the colors and patterns that will complement your existing decor, especially if you have an open concept home. You don't want it to be too busy or overwhelming, so consider sticking to smaller prints or muted colors.

4. Bathroom

One place you might not think to add floral prints is in the bathroom. But why not? Shower curtains are a great way to add a pop of color and pattern to your space. Plus, they're affordable and easy to switch out if you get tired of them. Other quick and simple changes include swapping the art on the wall or changing out the hand towels to a more decorative floral style.

5. Home Office

A great way to add a touch of summer to your home office is by using floral curtains or valances. Not only will they brighten up the space, but they also provide great functionality. Use room darkening or blackout curtains to provide a bit of privacy and noise reduction, as well as to cut down the glare on your computer screen. Use valances or sheer curtains to let in plenty of natural sunlight so the room doesn't feel so stuffy.

While many interior designers do recommended avoiding too many bright colors in a small space, summer is a great time to experiment with fun and vibrant floral prints in many areas of your home. These five spaces are the perfect places to start using floral decor to brighten up your home and inject some summer vibes. Tell us in the comments which room you plan to start with first.
