Spring is in the air, and with it brings fresh flower blossoms that you can incorporate into your home. Flowers are a great addition to your décor because they breathe life into your space. Flowers will not only brighten up a room, but they can also clean and purify the air.  Introducing flowers into your home should be more than just an after-thought, but instead can truly be into an extensive of your interior design. All it takes is a vase, a well-chosen bouquet and a little bit of water to transform your home.  

Flower decorations should seamlessly blend with your interior design style. Blossoms that match your wall or furnishings can add a touch of depth and texture. Adding a pop of color can add richness to your space. Contrasting colors can draw your eye, highlighting focal points such as a dining room table, piece of furniture or art piece. Bold blossoms like orchids, lilies, and roses are beautiful flowers that truly draw the eye.

While choosing the right flowers are important, you should also choose the right kind of vase. For a touch of elegance go for slender glass vase, or for a more rustic farmhouse feel put you flowers in a tin vase. Whatever ambiance you choose to go with, adding flowers to your decor is an easy way to elevate the style in your home.

Creating the perfect bouquet

To create a colorful flower bouquet, you first need around 12-15 flowers. With many flowers like peonies, hydrangeas and tulips blooming, let your creativity run wild as you choose the flowers that will create your perfect bouquet. If you want your bouquet to exude peace and harmony, cut violet hydrangeas or lilac. To add a splash of color try red roses, Gerbera daisies, asters, or solidago. Another way to really make your bouquet pop is to add greens like eucalyptus or olive branches. 

Once your flowers are chosen, select a large, eye-catching flower to be the focal point of your bouquet. Then alternatively place a flower and greenery at slight angles to complete the look. Voila, now you have a beautiful bouquet to include in your home.

To make your bouquet last, it is important to prepare the flowers by trimming the leaves, branches and thorns, and cut off flowers that have not yet fully opened. Cleanliness is also important to keep the flowers fresh. We recommend cleaning your vase and changing out the water every 2-3 days. This will ensure bacteria does not grow so your bouquets can last longer. Another tip to stop bacteria growth is to add a couple tablespoons of apple cider vinegar or sugar into the water.

Whether as a colorful eye-catcher or a harmonious decorative element: a bouquet of fresh flowers can instantly transform your space. Looking for more interior design ideas?
