Welcome to The Deep Dive, a series where we search high and low for the best of the best in any decor-related category, from modern chandeliers to vintage rugs. Next up: floral wallpaper.

It was Miranda Priestly who once famously quipped: “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking,” in The Devil Wears Prada. Despite her acute cynicism, she had a point. Every year, like clockwork, the budding pattern resurfaces everywhere, from runways to duvets and even rosé bottles. But there’s a reason blossoms are so refreshing: They signal a rebirth—something we could all use after a dreadfully long winter.

They also look damn good on walls. For a while, floral wallpaper had a bad rap. Visions of rooms plastered in dainty Laura Ashley prints, which incidentally also covered the curtains and bedspreads, still haunt our childhood memories. But modern iterations are anything but dated. In fact, if you dive deeper, you’ll find there’s a floral wallpaper for just about everyone’s taste.

If your vibe is grandma chic…

If you believe bigger is always better…

If you’re in a temporary rental…

If you like your bouquets to have a tropical flair…

If you have a penchant for paisley…

If you’re basically a ray of sunshine…

If you like your florals with stripes…

If you have a dramatic side…

If you’re feeling blue…

If you believe in the power of repetition…

If you dream of wildflower fields…
