Most of us love flowers and decorating with florals can be an easy and cost-effective way to add beauty, energy, and unique colours and textures to your home. They are a simple way to add elegance and life to a room, while also providing calming aromas that can elevate our mood
From bright floral centerpieces in vases to fragrant blooms that help create a serene atmosphere and artificial alternatives like wallpaper (I do love a bit of floral wallpaper!), there are so many ways to add spice to your space using florals.
Here are some examples of how best to make the most of our floral friends around the home.
Spruce Up Your Space With Stunning Floral Arrangements In Vases
One of the best ways to transform your space is with beautiful floral arrangements in vases. You can create a personalised flower decoration with romantic pink roses, sunny yellow crocuses, or even the classic stunning arrangement of peonies. Select the one that best suits your taste and get creative.
Consider using different sizes of vases to make remarkable centerpieces, or go for smaller ones to embellish small corners of your room. For a vintage touch, you can use old, decorated glass bottles as containers. And don’t be afraid to mix & match colours, anything goes.
Notably, taller blooms such as lilies or delphiniums can help create an elegant look in any kind of space.
Create A Serene Atmosphere With Fragrant Blooms
Aromatic flowers can help create a relaxing atmosphere at home. Bring the rooms to life by displaying fresh lavender, honeysuckle, and jasmine blossoms. For an exotic twist, display variants like orange blossom and lily-of-the-valley stems.
No matter the preference, carefully selecting fragrant flowers and arrangements is guaranteed to stimulate the senses of anyone who visits.
Incorporating (Flowering) Indoor Plants As Well
Creating a floral display in your space does not have to stop with arrangements and vases. You can also use indoor plants, some of which provide similar benefits to actual flowers if not more. However, just remember that houseplants do need some routine care and propagation to help them be their best.
If you’re looking for a décor element that’s more permanent, for instance, greenery such as the Swiss cheese plant can be perfect for that natural look.
Try different sizes of planters, from impressive floor-stands to small wall holders. And if you want to go for a fresher and brighter look, flowering plants like orchids are always popular. These come in different shapes, sizes, and colours so choose the one that best fits your space.
For an extra touch, use decorative pots – from plain terracotta to ceramic statement pieces – to give a more finished look.
Bring Out The Natural Beauty Of A Room With Floral Wallpaper
Florals have become an incredible source of inspiration in home decor, and you can now explore new ways to show them off. It doesn’t matter if the wallpaper has a subtle or vibrant pattern, it will always be able to elevate any room’s traditional look.
Examples range from timeless black-and-white botanicals and poppies to modern elegant series with hand-painted watercolour illustrations.
By having one accent wall with floral wallpaper, it will really enhance the pattern. We have floral wallpaper either side of the fireplace in the living room that’s been up for 5 years and I still love it. So go ahead and embrace the beauty of nature!
Quick Tips When Using Fresh Flowers For Decor
If you are thinking of decorating with fresh flowers, there are a few things to keep in mind before starting the process. Firstly, consider where the flowers will be placed: if it’s by a window, pick bright blooms to make them appear more vibrant. On the other hand, if your space is dimly lit opt for pastel colors that won’t fade away quickly.
Additionally, bear in mind the size of the room before deciding on sizes and varieties. Smaller places may look overwhelmed when you use too many flowers or mix tall stems with smaller ones, which will make them look chaotic instead of harmonious. Moreover, think about spacing – make sure you space out your flower arrangements so they don’t merge together, giving them a cluttered feel.
Lastly, don’t forget color coordination! Every flower has its own vibrant colours and tones; make sure they blend together perfectly, and that they pair well with the rest of your decor.
To sum up, decorating with flowers is a great way to add some flair to any room. As long as you know where to place them and what colours, shapes, and sizes to choose, you can create a stunning and uplifting space with florals without much strain. The tips above will hopefully inspire you into creating a design that adds life, beauty, and vibrancy to any room in your home.
