Welcome to the ultimate luxury design blog
The Royal Horticultural Society’s Chelsea Flower Show is in full swing, so there is no better time than now to discuss the flower power in interior design. Many homes can be beautifully decorated, but the space inside is left barren and colourless. Furniture can add some colour and shape to a space, but often restricts interior designers to plain colour and patterns, and the square or block shapes of tables or sofas.
Adding an Extra Dimension
Using flowers as part of our interior design ideas gives us access to all the colours we can imagine, and a range of shapes and designs from flower arrangements. Flowers also bring extra dimensions to interior design that you may not previously have thought of. The scent of fresh flowers can add to a home or a room’s atmosphere, adding a fresh summer scent to a light and airy neutrally coloured room. Strong scented, deep coloured and decadent flowers like deep red roses can bring an intimate and cosy feel to a dark nook or corner space in a hallway or under the stairs.
Flowers are particularly effective at bringing something to a space where there felt like there was nothing before. By adding a simple bouquet to a shelf in a hallway, or a table at the bottom or top of the stairs can add character to a space you might not even have thought much of before. They add freshness and class to a bathroom, especially small and cramped washrooms that may be stuck under the stairs or at the end of a hallway.
Many people are put off by the cost of keeping fresh flowers, but these are often overestimated. The internet has led to a number of online flower delivery services offering high-quality flowers at very reasonable prices. Services such as www.freddiesflowers.com offer regular fresh flower delivery, allowing you to have fresh flowers in your home all year round without breaking the bank. They even offer tips on flower arrangement and seasonal bouquets. Flowers bought online often stay fresher for longer, going straight from the grower to your door, giving you the best of the flower’s bloom for as long a time as possible.
Colour, Texture, and Shape
Using flowers in interior design is a growing trend, and creates opportunities for colour, texture and shape that home furnishings cannot match. Even vases and posies offer a chance to add some character to a space. Using antique vases, in glass, silver or pewter, can give a space a more traditional look, and a more modern or contemporary vase can complement a minimalist, clean styled room.
Flowers are an inexpensive way to add colour, beauty and scent to our home. Thanks to a number of online flower delivery services it is now easier than ever to keep fresh flowers in our spaces all year around. Every homeowner should consider adding flowers to their home and bring a splash of colour to their bedrooms, living rooms and bathrooms.
