Florals are making a triumphant return to home fashion. Whether you are a minimalist who loves retro styled prints or a traditionalist who desires the classics, there is a floral to suit everyone’s style. Make a statement by creating a feature wall with this dramatic tulip wallpaper “Dutch Treat”. The pattern itself was inspired from a vintage fabric from Europe. Historically, tulips are among one of the most popular springtime garden flowers.
The name tulip originated from the Persian word, “dulband”, which means turban. Suitably named, the tulip flower resembles a wrapped turban when in full bloom. Turkish men centuries ago wore tulips tucked into their turbans.
Symbolically, tulips represent fame and perfect love, however their meanings change depending on the color of the tulips. Red tulips mean, “believe me” and are a declaration of love. A bouquet of tulips symbolizes grace and elegance.
Every pattern used in decorating has a story to tell. This room is about grace and elegance, visually and symbolically. Bring meaning and style to your décor through the fascinating world of pattern symbolism and elevate your decorating to the next level.
