Floral patterns are back. So, all you minimalist aficionados cover your eyes and wait for the trend to pass.  From Indian florals to Liberty style, or vintage and large floral patterns, you can your pick from an amazing selection available today. For intense or dramatic effect, a floral wallpaper is effective by covering a focal point, a wall, a niche or maybe just a corner of a room.

Wallpaper is not the only privileged choice for the floral pattern. Fine bone china plates, napkins, paperweights to name a few are some of the items that can be found decorated in this trend.

The styles vary, romantic, arts&crafts, bucolic, bohemian, oriental but the statement is clear: flower power.

It is a very functional table lamp with a swiveling upper arm which allows for 360 degree rotation.

The oceanfront palace was in fact designed by Robert Couturier (Rizzoli just published a book on his work: Designing Paradise) in an exuberant style that mixes the feel of Morocco, India and Mexico with soaring ceilings and fountain courtyards. It was built for the international financier Sir James Goldsmith who created not only this oceanfront palace but also a 25,000 acre eco reserve along with organic farms and ranches that made his jungle kingdom self sufficient. source : luxurious magazine
