With all of this social distancing going on it’s about time to bring some color and life back into our homes! The best and easiest way to do this is through floral decor. Crack open your creativity and get started on these 10 Ideas to get your house popping again.
1. Entryway Centerpiece
Your entryway is the first room that guests see. It needs to be welcoming and give your guests a good first impression. One of the best ways to do this is to have a floral centerpiece on a table or pedestal. Put all of your family’s personality into that vase! Colorful and spunky? Or delicate and classic? It’s up to you!
2. Baby’s Breath
Baby’s Breath might be my favorite accent of all time. It is the daintiest flower you will ever find. It whispers youth and there can never be too much of it. What’s so great about this low maintenance flower is that, because of its small size and white color, it can be used to decorate any room and not clash with the theme.
Whether your room is neutral toned or exploding with lime green, the baby’s breath will lie perfectly in its place and compliment the mood. Contain them in jars, tuck them behind a portrait, or simple lie them flat on the dresser.
3. Bedside Daisies
Is there anything better than waking up next to blossoming flowers? Flowers by your bedside are key in the summer. You awake to the glorious scent of life and open your eyes to an artistic display of color. I think daisies are a wonderful option for its simple and also youthful. It is the perfect motivation to have an energetic and productive day.
5. Lavender & Eucalyptus Bathroom
If you want any room in the house to look natural and fresh it is the master bathroom. It is your holy shrine that you prepare your body for the day in every morning. It needs to be pristine and you need to breathe in a fresh new day every time you enter. The best combination of scent and aesthetic appeal is paring Lavender with Eucalyptus. Lavender exudes the perfect aroma while the green eucalyptus portrays youth and nature.
6. Dry Flower Look
You may be thinking, “Why in the world would I put a DEAD object in my room if I’m looking for life and an energy-boost?”. The answer is all in the aesthetics. Flowers are so magical that even dead ones can brighten a mood. They add a rustic and time-less look to a room. They work best in colorful rooms so that the paler, brown look of the plant can contrast the color palette.
If you truly want a western and classic look add Pampas Grass to your display. It reminds me of the New Frontier. Every time I see them I think of an exploration to Africa or a trip through a Western prairie.
Hopefully this give s a head start in your new mission to revitilize your home! If it turns out that you truly do enjoy florals in the home there are a number of further resources to spark inspiration like House Beautiful, Lolly Jane, and Decoraid.
