GlucksteinHome Midori bedding

Brian Gluckstein explains how to take this perennial favourite in a contemporary direction.

This season’s crop of botanical-inspired designs makes it cool to be pretty. Antique floral prints will always have their place, but there is a full bouquet of next-generation ideas that are reinventing this classic motif for your home. One we love for this summer is art-forward:

“Handmade, painterly looking blooms on fabrics, cushions and furniture feel refined and modern.” — Brian Gluckstein, Hudson’s Bay Home Design Ambassador

A Table In Bloom
Finding the right balance of sophistication and whimsy can create magic in the dining room. Use your own taste to find a match that pleases you and your guests: Try combining family heirlooms with fun new additions for a table that is uniquely you.

 “You can incorporate florals everywhere in the home, but start with bedding and tabletop. It’s even better if you double up the Flower Power with complementary dinnerware and table linens.” — Brian Gluckstein
