Florals for spring are nothing new, but this season fashion designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Suno and Derek Lam unveiled them in dark, bold colors like burgundy, burnt orange, navy and magenta. To apply the look indoors, Dutch interior designer Barbara Groen recommends juxtaposing various prints as she did earlier this year for her project “Flower Power 101.” Here, Groen’s tips for creating the supermodern look at home, along with a slideshow of floral accents.

1. Focus. Pick one room or area of the house and try to stick to a certain style of patterns: big flowers or mini flowers, bright colors or soft colors.

2. Repeat colors. For example, if the pattern is pink, try to put something pink in the room, or let the same pink come back in another pattern.

3. Try wallpaper as art. You can cover a big board in a special pattern, then hang it on your wall or put it on a side table or fireplace.
