Nature is in full bloom, and in these wallpapers, art truly imitates life. Patterns of flowers and plants—whether the details are realistic or abstract—bring the spirit of spring to life and into your home.
Centuries ago, nomadic tribespeople in Central Asia made large-scale, hand-embroidered textiles for their yurts, or tents. The colorful patterns, made with vegetal dyes, often depict flowers and dowries, where they have been thought to represent, and to bring, good luck, health, long life and fertility. Today's suzanis, antique or new, continue to bring life and vibrancy into your home.

Add tassels and piping, trims and fringes, skirts and pleats to the slipcover, and the possibilities for transforming furniture and the rooms in which they figure become even greater—as Katrin Cargill, MILIEU's European Style Editor, proves here.
