Right at Home: Decorating year round with roses


Thomas Paul applies his edgy sensibility to an illustrated version at www.allmodern.com .

Traditional-looking, rose-patterned wallpaper isn’t difficult to find, but you might want to check out a unique collection from Target that’s not offered in stores: In taupes, teals, browns and golds, the wallcoverings have a rose print reminiscent of a vintage French negligee, which would be fun in a bedroom or powder room. (www.target.com )

At www.wayfair.com , there’s a textural, tonal, rose-print wallcovering evocative of an Old World art print.

And California designer Phyllis Morris’ dramatic Vie en Rose, an overscale photoprint of carmine blooms on a black background, turns a bedroom into a boudoir. (www.phyllismorris.com )

Small accessories are an easy way to introduce rose motifs. Café Press has a clever wall clock emblazoned with a purple rose image. (www.cafepress.com ) At Pier 1, red felt roses lend drama to a picture frame. And finally, Habidecor’s Abyss Rose bath rug is a luxurious way to put the flower underfoot. (www.gracioushome.com )
