Cabbage Rose Designs

Updated on September 29, 2014

Let Cabbage Roses Inspire Your Vintage or Cottage Style Home Decor

I love cabbage rose designs. The vintage style designs of these large fluffy roses lend themselves well to cottage style decor. They say simple elegance without a lot of fuss.

Cabbage roses are large hybrid roses. The Latin name is Rosa à centifolia. But I love the name cabbage rose.

I love the look of cabbage roses on lamps, fabric, pillows, shower curtains, mouse pads, you name it. The large multi-layered petals give this pretty rose fullness, and in real life, cabbage roses smell good, too!

~*~ The Thin People ~*~ by Sylvia Plath

They persist in the sunlit room: the wall paper

Frieze of cabbage-roses and cornflowers pales

Under their thin-lipped smiles,

Their withering kingship.

From Sylvia Plath's Poem The Thin People
