Decorating your home helps to improve its image as well as reflect your personal style. Flowers are a great option for home decor since they can be used in a variety of ways and can be changed out to reflect different seasons and preferences.
If you prefer to decorate with fresh flowers, check with a local florist for assistance with arrangements and care as well as supporting a small business. Fresh flowers are perfect in vases as table centerpieces and can be easy to arrange once you learn the art of it.
Prepare your flowers by removing unnecessary parts, such as thorns and excess leaves. Make a 45-degree angle cut at the end of the stem before submerging it in water. Keep larger flowers at the center while gathering smaller flowers around them. You can also keep the flowers in place with floral foam or tape.
There are two general color categories for flower arrangements- warm and cool. Warm colors such as red, orange and yellow are associated with cheer, encouragement, happiness and warmer weather. If you are trying to bring any of these emotions into your home, go with a warm color scheme.
Cool colors, on the other hand, include green, blue and purple and can bring a sense of tranquility to the home. These colors work well with a home entryway or bedroom due to their relaxing effect.
Flowers in the home are also good for their aromatherapy benefits. Smells from lavender and chamomile are incredibly calming, making them perfect for bedroom decor and ensuring a good night’s sleep. Happier scents such as those from daisies or carnations are great for the kitchen and living room with their welcoming and joyful aroma.
Flower decorations are a personal reflection of your style brought to life. You can switch them out as often as you please and switch up the color schemes to keep a sense of excitement in your home. They’re always accessible and typically affordable. Freshen up your home with a beautiful floral arrangement in each room!
