Casa Forma Welcomes You To The Ultimate Luxury Interior Design Blog
Flowers are the natural art that creates a sense of life in any home. We love working with flowers and plants and think that homes benefit greatly from a touch of the natural.
Today we thought we’d look at choosing the perfect flowers for your home as spring really isn’t too far away!
Choosing a Vase or Pot
Of course the first place to start is choosing something to put flowers or plants in. Vases range from the small and plain to the incredibly ornate and beautiful. Ornate complement flowers to produce a beautiful integrated room feature that can turn even the most drab room into an aesthetic treasure. Pots tend to be much larger and the focus with these tends to be on the plant rather than the aesthetics of its containers.
Choosing Where to Put Flowers
If you regularly have flowers then we recommend putting them in a prominent place. Centrepieces on tables, above fireplaces or on furniture all work wonders with any interior design. Our main advice here is to keep them actually in the room – by windows the view detracts from their beauty and most pre-cut flowers won’t last any longer in direct sunlight.
There’s a lot of personal preference when it comes to flower types and colours. However, if you’re looking to really compliment your interior design then careful flower selection is essential.
Flowers for White Rooms
For white rooms yellow flowers like sunflowers, daffodils and chrysanthemum really add to the light feel of a room – they evoke strong images of spring and freshness that makes everyone in the house happy.
To create a softer feel pink flowers work spectacularly with pink lilies, roses and chrysanthemum making a nice blend with existing décor.
Flowers for Light Rooms
For pale rooms that use light blue, pinks or non-white light colour we like to use light but rich flowers with soft blues, reds and oranges. Flowers like freesias, lisianthus, pale roses and orchids really match these rooms. They create a nice soft feel that is perfectly complemented by sunlight in the day and candlelight at night.
Flowers for Darker Rooms
If you have a nice dark rich room with deeper colours like red, purple or dark wood then you want to add to that rich comforting feel with any flower choices. In red rooms yellows and purples really add to that enwrapped warm feeling these rooms evoke. In purple rooms yellows and reds achieve the same effect. In dark rooms with a lot of dark wood we prefer lush green plants that perform well in the dark like peace lilies, Pothos and Philodendron. Alternatively bonsai trees can work beautifuly in these rooms create an earthy rich feel.
One of the best parts of flowers is that they are inexpensive to replace. You can experiment easily and often to find something that is the perfect fit for every room in your home.
