Named after French botanist Pierre Magnol, the magnolia is a flower of great beauty and elegance. This showy yet sophisticated blossom is recognized as a symbol of the South; in fact, it’s the state flower of both Louisiana and Mississippi. Though its meaning varies around the world, common associations include nobility, strength, perseverance, dignity, purity, and love of nature. If you’ve always admired this graceful flower but felt that its bloom was too short-lived, consider sprinkling magnolia decor throughout your home to enjoy all year round.
Remind yourself every day of the qualities to keep with the Magnolia Wall Accent. Nestled between magnolia blossoms, an ornamental resin banner spells out three inspirational words: faith, hope, and love. If you don’t have a flowering magnolia tree outside your window, the off-white blossoms on the Magnolia Wall Sconce Pair may be the next best thing. This pair of indoor wall accents is ready and waiting to hold your pillar candles.
The Magnolia Charm Candleholder Set uses a swooping scroll design to showcase dimensional floral blooms. Place your pillar candles in the leaf-like holders at the top to complete the extravagant display. The Magnolia Elegante II Wall Art Set puts a unique twist on wall decor with one concave and one convex panel. Covered in a protective lacquer finish, the curved surfaces feature detailed magnolia blooms in full splendor.

A symbol of Southern pride, nobility, and the serendipitous moments of beauty the natural world presents daily to humankind, the magnolia has its roots anchored in several plots of symbolism. The magnolia tree is also an ancient plant, having come into existence even before bees, and it smacks of old world tradition and a fierce sturdiness. Take a cue from nature and incorporate these gorgeous blooms in your interior decorating.
You can slumber away in the fragrant embrace of a field of magnolia trees with the Garden Images III Magnolia Bedding. White tepals—not petals, due to their interconnected nature—spread against an entourage of wild bouquets and flittering butterflies on this comforter. The parchment background is tinged with the soft yellow of daybreak, as though throwing one’s window open upon some sunny, Mississippi morning. Coordinating pillows and striped European shams add to the eclectic composition that so often typifies a wild garden.
A single magnolia flower, on the other hand, is the focal point of the Melanie Magnolia Rug, which unfurls with quiet charisma on the floor. The three-dimensional nature of the magnolia is expressed through the rug’s handcarved texture and the subtle, elongated shadows creeping up from the overlapping tepals.
While the Melanie Rug blooms up, the Calista Magnolia Table Lamp blooms down, its frosted, white glass shade depicting magnolias in varying stages of development. The antique bronze finish that coats the fluted base and font even invokes the woody branches the magnolias burst from every spring.
The magnolia represents so many good things, it would be impossible to not include at least one of them in your home decor. Blossoming in unforeseen places about the home, this flower will delight and surprise onlookers like it has already been doing for centuries.
