Decorating with bright and colorful flowers in your home is such a pleasure, thanks to Sturbridge Yankee Workshop’s wonderful array of floral decorating items. The beauty of our flower and floral themed items for your home creates coziness, warmth and a place your family will want to come home to. Bring nature’s lovely creations indoors and display them on walls, rugs, quilts and anywhere else you want to add a floral accent. Let the natural world inspire you!


Flowers for Your Wall

When it comes to floral themed wall decor, Sturbridge has a lovely variety to choose from. First, featured to the left is our Sunflower Seed Sign. Based on an old seed packet, this cheery Sunflower Seed Sign bursts forth to light up any room. A wonderful wall decoration for any time of year, that adds nostalgic charm to your country home due to its vintage design; proudly made in the USA. Another option is our gorgeous Four Seasons Flowers Wall Plaque. Delicate daffodils herald in spring, bold sunflowers dance in the summer horizon, hardy chrysanthemums mimic the artistry of fall and beautiful poinsettias make the perfect centerpiece on a holiday table. Celebrate the changing colors of landscapes and blooms with this primitive folk art plaque Four Season’s Flowers by Michaela Schrader. The plaque goes through a twelve step process to adhere the image to wood, giving it a ‘canvas painting’ appearance.

Pastel Flowers, Bright Flowers

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop there are different levels of floral decor. Some items offer a more muted or pastel color palette of flowers and others present bright, bold hues. Our Hydrangea Basket Rug seen here to the right, adds a lovely garden accent to your home, as a welcome rug or accent rug near the kitchen sink. A basket brims with purple and blue hydrangeas, bringing nature indoors. Bordered in multi-braid pattern that highlights the center image. Natural 100% jute braid creates durability and is of course, eco-friendly.

In contrast, our Flowery Garden Rug, will provide a different look to your floors. Bright blooms cheer up your country home in this easy-care rug, designed by Gail Flores. This accent rug can go outdoors too, due to it’s fade resistant nature and can stand up to heat and cold. A soft rug to welcome guests with sunshine in the entryway or a pop of floral in the bathroom; polypropylene and acrylic material.

Floral Accents

Flowers can grow in the smallest of places, “popping” up where you might least expect them. Consider any of these items when looking for a fantastic floral accent. Our Flower Hook pictured here to the left is made here in Maine of wrought iron metal. We love the charming design of these posies, yet they also provide a practical purpose too. Use the hooks to hang hats, scarves and keys in your front hallway or mudroom. In the kitchen, it helps organize potholders and kitchen towels. It’s even cute enough for your bedroom, for a place to stash jewelry and scarves.

Displaying another beautiful arrangement of flowers, is our Brown Floral Throw. Warm yourself up with the handcrafted chocolate floral print featuring lilies, roses and hydrangea. The real treat is the skillful accent of vermicelli stitching. Reversing to multi-stripe pattern, this 100% cotton throw matches with our Brown Floral Toss Pillow. Lastly, by certainly not least our Stained Glass Flower will surely brighten your mood. Made in Connecticut, you can easily place this red daisy in the sunlight and watch how the sun dances off the surface. Each flower is a handcrafted original with bright red glass petals, a sunshine yellow center and carefully soldered edges. A wonderful gift for giving, hanging in windows, and an everlasting pick-me-up, no water needed :)
