Florals are in this season, and there are a number of creative ways to incorporate this popular trend into your home.
- Match your style: Choose flowers and floral patterns that complement and enhance the look and personality of your home. If you are looking for ideas, consider roses or carnations for traditional decor, callas or orchids for contemporary, mixed spring flowers or heather for country, ivy or flowering green plants for casual, or peonies or lavender for Victorian style.
- An abundance of accents: If you love the floral look but don’t want to worry about the care or maintenance of live flowers, there are a wide range of patterned pieces you can decorate with – throw pillows, dishes, furniture, area rugs, wallpaper, and much more. Mix and match your favorite designs, but be sure to also incorporate neutral accents to balance the patterns and avoid overdoing it.
- Perfect placement: When using live or faux flowers, size and placement is key. For open spaces like large entryways or dining rooms, go big and bold with abundant arrangements of large blooms. Smaller bouquets add a touch of color to personal areas like bedrooms and bathrooms. And placing just a few flowers in your guest room will create a subtle, yet welcoming touch.
- The final finishing touch: Don’t forget the containers! They are important to completing the overall look. Whether it’s a simple glass vase, an ornate brass pot, or a classic clay planter, choose materials and colors that complement your flowers or plants and their surrounding environment.
