Ok, I'm going a little pattern crazy. Here's a set of 5 floral or floral-ish patterns for you alls. This set is inspired by all the horrible, dated wallpaper I stared at all day in my youth.

All of the wallpapers have light "dirt" included somewhere, and its color can be adjusted to give either a dirty, faded, or burned look to the wallpapers. Unfortunately, the dirt layer on most of these is not it's own separate layer, so it changes with the color of design. I tried to stick the dirt on the layer that made the most sense for the most common color choices, so most of the dirt layers are on the "leaves" layers. I thought about making clean versions of these due to that limitation, but the dirty ones look so rad that I thought "why bother?"

All patterns have 4 colors and are located under "Fabrics." You can pick and choose which to download or just grab them all.

rug - Baroqueish
armchair - Granny's Kitchen
wallpaper - Total Modness
bed - Seventies Monster
loveseat - Stock Flowers

Check out the recolors for more variations on what the dirt looks like.
