Following in the footsteps of the Matisse cut-out trend of past years, simple graphic florals take over this spring. Here, we highlight a few of the standouts found while browsing our favorite online stores, such as Mr. Larkin and No.6 Store, who focus on smaller designers with a unique focus.

Whether hand painted, cut out, or drawn, the key is to concentrate on clean floral forms colored up with a high contrast ground. For surface designers, this type of print is a nice change of pace from more ornate styles, such as romantic garden florals or botanical tropicals, typical of the season.
