How Fresh Flowers Can Transform a Room

Flowers in Interior DesignIn their work, interior designers can design floor plans, develop room layouts, create color schemes, and more. Interior designers also choose accessories that emphasize the room’s style, and not all of these accessories have to be permanent.

One of the best ways to keep a room vibrant and dynamic is to keep a vase of fresh flowers in it. Fresh flowers easily transform a room to suit the current season or your current mood.

While you can purchase flowers for your interiors, the easiest way to add flowers to your designs is to grow your own. Having a flower garden means that you can enjoy your flowers inside as well as outside of your house, plus you always have a free supply of fresh flowers when you need them.

For advice on how to transform a room using flowers, check out the tips below.

  • Create a centerpiece. Want to add something extra to your kitchen, coffee table, or mantel? A bouquet of fresh flowers works perfectly as an eye-catching centerpiece. Keep it simple with one or two flower types or opt for a larger variety if you know how to assemble a complex arrangement.
  • Accent your color scheme. Your flesh flowers should interact positively with your existing color scheme, whether they complement it or add contrast. When you choose colors of flowers, follow your instincts, use color theory, or experiment. If you have ideas about what you’re looking for, you can always consult a florist or do some research online.
  • Use flowers to maintain balance. If a room has a neutral or mute color scheme, you can brighten it up tremendously using a couple different types of flowers in bold shades. On the other hand, if you have colorful walls and furniture, flowers in subtle or pale shades can help create balance.
  • Get creative. Other types of freshly cut plants might be more your style. Try branches or other plants for a unique look. Don’t forget to consider the season as well in your interior decorating. For example, a bit of holly around Christmastime can spruce up your holiday decorations.
