Demi Moore has been making waves lately for her role in the upcoming horror film The Substance; however, when it comes to the actor's interiors, she prefers a serene environment. In fact, her kitchen is almost cottage-like, a far cry from whatever terrors await on the big screen.

The GI Jane and A Few Good Men star shared a photo of her country-chic breakfast nook on her Instagram page, and as we are in the depths of spring, we couldn't help but admire her floral booth and wood furniture, which combines to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. It taps into the cafe corner trend while reminding us just how accsessible this look can be.

Natural elements and floral patterns are two fixtures within design (especially trends such as cottagecore) whose interior life extends well beyond springtime. When this vibrant pattern is set against the natural wood material, it produces a highly nature-infused ambiance, which designers say is a mood-boosting technique.

'Floral patterns in the kitchen, especially in a breakfast nook, bring a sense of freshness and vibrancy,' says designer Nina Lichtenstein. 'They epitomize rustic elegance and cozy charm.'

Lichtenstein notes that part of the reason Moore's kitchen is so visually pleasing is that the woodwork of the bench and table matches that of the floors, making for a seamless look that is delightfully disrupted by the floral seat cushions.

'Just as in Demi Moore's nook, pairing florals with natural wood creates a cohesive and balanced look,' she says. 'Choose floral patterns that echo the colors found in your woodwork to create harmony.'

To maintain visual interest, Lichtenstein suggests incorporating other materials into the mix, even if they are neutral colors.

'Combine floral cushions with other textured fabrics, such as linen or burlap, to add depth and interest' she says. 'This layering effect enhances the rustic charm and makes the space feel more dynamic.'

This could be implemented via woven placemats or a linen tablecloth.

Finally, although it can be tempting, Lichtenstein says that we should not over-do it with floral decor in the kitchen.

'In a space where functionality is key, such as a kitchen, it’s best to use florals sparingly,' she recommends. 'A few well-placed cushions or a floral table runner can add just the right amount of charm without becoming overpowering.'

With that in mind, we have rounded up some floral kitchen decor pieces below.
