    Flowery or floral for skirts and wallpaper

    Hello,

    Both words have more or less the same meaning in a dictionary. I'm just wondering if they can be used interchangeably.

    a) a floral skirt

    b) a flowery skirt

    c) floral wallpaper

    d) flowery wallpaper

    e) floral vase (vase with a flower pattern)

    f) flowery vase (vase with a flower pattern)

    Best regards,

    Nawee

    Yes.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    A through D work for me. When you get to E and F, there may be some confusion, particularly with E. Are the flowers in or on the vase?
