Decorating with Flowers - a Room by Room Overview
Hi there, and Happy Wednesday! The week has passed by so quickly, and we're delighted to be back at work! Well, this week we've decided to talk about dècor. With flowers, of course!
Toronto has started to enjoy warmer temperatures, and since flowers are in abundance this time of the year, we feel inspired to bring nature into our homes and bring you some suggestions for decorating with flowers.
Having beautiful and colourful flower arrangements in different rooms of the house can uplift our spirits and our home décor. I might be biased, but I can't think of a quicker and more joyful way of brightening up your life!
Some people want to boast elegance, others luxury, or even coziness - in any case, a flower arrangement as a piece of decoration inside your home does wonders.
Flowers are so versatile that they can be used in different settings. Place them on surfaces like a side table, a credenza, a nightstand. You can hang a potted plant or spread little arrangements throughout the house.
You can also go fresh or silk, depending on factors like natural light in the room and even budget. While fresh flowers are pretty and fragrant, it might be pricey always have several arrangements in a house. On the other hand, permanent silk flowers may seem a little on the expensive side at first, but with minimal care, they never need to be replaced.
Nowadays, many flower shops offer subscription services, which makes decorating with flowers more practical. Flower Plus' Subscription delivers a beautiful selection of fresh flower arrangements and bouquets to homes and offices around GTHA on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis.
With that said, let's go over a few tips when decorating your home with flowers - room-by-room!
FLOWERS FOR THE LIVING ROOM
The living room (and, in some cases, the family room) is probably the room we spend most of our time with family and friends. This is why it's essential to create a healthy atmosphere to relax and be ourselves with loved ones.
It's known that plants can reduce stress, buffer noise, purify the air and promote a more positive energy in the room. However, it's also important to choose the right flowers and plants for the living room and talking to your florist about your plans to decorate with flowers is always a good idea!
FLOWERS FOR THE DINING ROOM
The environment in our dining room sets the mood for our meals and can affect our appetite and dining experience. Adding a floral arrangement as a centrepiece to the dining table is a good idea even if most of us don't usually have our meals in this room very often. If we're entertaining, creating a tablescape with a beautiful centrepiece (or several small arrangements) can make our guests feel really special.
This is also where you can get to be very creative and explore seasonal colours and holiday trends, combining fresh flowers and some other items to create beautiful vignettes.
FLOWERS FOR THE RESTROOM
Restrooms don't usually get our careful attention when it comes to keeping the environment inviting. They are generally dark, small, and frequently humid, which doesn't really inspire much. However, if we get a little bit creative, this overlooked room can become a pleasant and relaxing space.
Due to the general characteristics of most restrooms, we need to be extra careful in choosing plants and flowers that tolerate low light and high humidity. This is why we are fans of adding beautiful silk flower arrangements to make any restroom more glamourous and luxurious. If you have a window in your bathroom, go to town and add some tall greenery, it'll help create the illusion of a bigger space.
FLOWERS FOR THE BEDROOM
Our bedroom is not only the room where we sleep. It's where we go to relax, to connect with our partners and with ourselves. It's where we are ourselves without the need to wear any masks or pretend.
In that sense, having fresh flower arrangements in the bedroom will set the mood for what you aspire to happen in your bedroom and tailor it to whatever stage you are in your life.
Consider the decor in your room, the colour schemes, the amount of natural lighting, and even your general mood when you wake up and go to bed. From there, you can take note of the surfaces you have and how many arrangements you want to display or the mood you want to set.
Flowers are great for creating a beautiful and soft healing energy. They can also help create a more sensual atmosphere. Talking with your florist will help you determine the best colour and flower combination to achieve what you desire with the flower arrangements for your bedroom.
If you feel inspired and want to uplift your home dècor with flower arrangements, give us a call to discuss your ideas. We can work on single designs or a more comprehensive project with you. We'd also be happy to introduce you to our subscription options so you can always have fresh flower arrangements conveniently delivered to your home.
