If you're like me, the thought of florals can give you hives.  Remedy that with this selection of highly likeable floral wallpapers and textiles.  I think the key with florals is to either keep them unrealistic in some way (for example by abstractly painting them or playing with scale, color, or repeat) or to portray them hyper-realistically, with almost scientific detail.

See more examples of successful florals after the jump.
