Show Off Your Cottage Monday - Floral patterns

Welcome to "SHOW OFF YOUR COTTAGE MONDAY", a blog party I host at the beginning of each week to celebrate the things we love about our homes and how we live.
The House in the Roses

From a lovely pastel colored little dress, wearing a flower-print pattern, to heaps of pillows scattered around, florals give interiors a fresh, pretty look. Piles of fabrics, like piles of books, make a fabulous feature. Floral patterns can be used in any room where you'd like that softer feel. I love flower-print fabrics, and love to pile them up. Piles of soft pastel flowery fabrics give a romantic feel that I just love. They also are an easy way to bring color and pattern into your home, and still keep the look soft, feminine and tasteful! Decorating with florals is the spark of the romantic heart. These things speak to our senses and our dreams.
Florals epitomize the eternal summer garden and comfort, luxury, and voluptuous surroundings, and I just love to come to this sanctuary where I can retreat after a hectic public day to a private haven...
What are you celebrating today? I'd love to hear it! Join the celebration by linking up:


  1. Hi Most Beautiful Cielo! Everything you do is so beautiful and romantic. Love the pretty fabrics and that sweet little pink dress is darling! I'm joining you today with photos from inside some plantations from a recent trip we took. Hope it's okay!
    Hope you'll come to my Heart of the Home party I'm having on the 13th - we'll be showing our kitchens.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. Oh, your pictures are gorgeous! I love the pillow above the little pink girl's dress and the little girl's dress. So very sweet!

  3. Hi Cielo,
    your home is so romantic! I love all your beautiful pillows.

    Thank you for hosting,


  4. I love this pretty post as it is so Summery! I have seen so many Fall pictures and posts lately I am beginning to think it should be Autumn over here rather than Spring!

    Thanks for having me Cielo.

    Best wishes for a lovely week.

  5. Pretty florals are always so cheery to have around! These are lovely! Another beautiful post as always! Jacqueline

  6. Hi Cielo! What a lovely post. That dress in the first picture is beautiful...and so are your pillows. I recognize the dishes with the roses. I believe they are the Pfalzgraf ones? I had a double set and gave them to a young couple that was getting married. She didn't have anything and you would have thought I gifted her the moon. I still love them...but am glad she has them.

    Lovely Cottage today- Hugs- Diana
