free iphone wallaper / by breanna rose

So the new iOS7 came out yesterday and yadda yadda. People love it, people hate it. Either way, I went through with the update and because I get SUPER picky, ended up creating my own background. You see, the slightly opaque color behind the bottom menu was bugging me at how strong it came through and covered up the background images I was trying. I know, maybe I’m crazy?? The solution that I came up with was to get flat with my background. I chose a light grey color, which meshes nicely with that bottom menu, and put some simple vintage florals on top of it. Ta da!

I like to keep my home screen really organized + clean ( the above screenshot is my actual phone ), so the florals ended up becoming the focal point versus being covered up entirely. Kinda fun! Feel free to download the wallpaper right here. Sometimes, being picky pays off. Plus, I have something to share with you all! Enjoy.

    LOVE the vintage flower and background! very pure & simple
    How do you like iOS7 so far?

    • breanna says:

      Hmm, I’m not sure how I like it yet. I’m such a sucker for flat design, so there are a ton of aspects I like, but others that I just plain old need to get used to. My FAVORITE part is the new lock screen. The typography on there is divine. ;)

      So overall, mixed feelings from me! How about you?

    • HYEMI says:

      I adore typography too!
      but like most of people, I am not a fan of color & icons :)

  2. Melanie says:

    Ha our home screens are pretty much the same (with organization) : )

  3. Nesha says:

    I have a sunflower as my lockscreen wallpaper, so this as my home screen wallpaper will match perfectly! I’m not sure I should be so excited about matching iphone wallpapers…. :s Thanks a bunch anyways!

  4. Lara says:

    Oh my god – I didn’t even notice the opaque-ness until just now, and it is the worst. I need to download this lovely background asap!

  5. Heart your wallpaper. Hate the iOS7 (but I’ll get over it).

  6. Hilary says:

    Thank you so much I could cry :’)

  7. Kirsten says:

    I have such mixed feelings about it too. I love the typography, but absolutely hate the opaquey bar behind the bottom icons, as well as the green + blue bubbles in the text messages. But the actual functionality I really like so far!

  8. aly says:

    Oh I love this! Too bad I have a 4s. :(


  9. Rachel says:

    Is it me or are things moving on my screen when I turn it different ways???

    Love the new background! Yay! Now if only I had a white iPhone instead of black…

    • breanna says:

      YES, the move!! That was tripping me out for a good while until I had my “AHA – it’s supposed to do that” moment. Woops. ;)

  10. Hilary says:

    Thank you! This is gorgeous. You inspired me to organize my home screen, also. :)

  11. I’m the same way about all of my screens: everything must feel fresh, clean and organized.

  12. Christine says:

    Hi Breanna, I’m not completely enamored with the new iOS look, but I def think this pretty background will help me adjust. I’d love an iPad mini version :-)

    • breanna says:

      Oh man! I thought about doing an iPad version and then just didn’t this time around. I’ll keep this in mind and maybe do another florals wallpaper feature for desktops + ipads, too! ;)

  13. You ROCK! I was just telling my husband how I am in NO rush to update my phone because… well, the new look is hideous and I am a sucker for good design. Like you, it’s just something that bugs me!

    But such a clever idea! And it looks really great too! Thank you so much, Breanna. :D You’re awesome.

  14. heather says:

    I just barely downloaded it so I’m haven’t had time for it to sink in but I instantly loved the look of it. Especially the lock screen! Seems like a ton of people don’t like it so we’ll see. I’m definitely glad the look changed though, I was so sick of the old look. Love the wallpaper, it made my home screen so pretty. <3

  15. Melissa says:

    Just downloaded this, thanks! Yay for iOS7!!

  16. lisa says:

    love this! ever since i update too, i’ve been wanting something mostly white. i’m happy now. :)

  17. emma says:

    Hi Breanna, this iphone wallpaper is gorgeous! I have yet to upsdate my ioS, i dont like the idea of my apps moving around though, that would really confuse me! Thank you i will be downloading this : )

  18. Gucki says:

    Thank you for this amazing wallpaper! Fit perfectly with the iOS7 update!!

  19. Lauren says:

    Just downloaded the wallpaper! Thank you so much! I love it!

  20. Noor says:

    I am the same way about my homescreen I like a really clean and simple background. This is so pretty thank you.

  21. Karen says:

    Such a lovely wallpaper— love it! Thank you!

    P.S. What are some of your favorite apps? :)

  22. […] 1.  Got iOS 7 for my iPhone.  I’m still getting used to it, and I’m about 50/50 on whether I like it or not.  Some features I like, some I don’t.  Regardless, a graphic designer that I follow designed a free background that I downloaded and now use.  I really like it and it actually matches my new branding for my business pretty well!  You can download it here.

    Thank you for such a lovely creation!

  26. Cindy says:

    I love your wallpaper but an issue I have with IOS 7 is that the text below the icons is white so how do you get it to show up?

    • Cindy says:

      Sorry for the question above. I downloaded your beautiful wallpaper and the text automatically adjusted to black. I FINALLY like my iPhone screen again. Thank you!!!
