For those of us who are challenged in the department of keeping living plants alive, then there is a great solution to your problem. Decorating with silk flowers, trees and grasses is a wonderful alternative. This is where you might have to spend more money for your initial output to purchase a good quality silk to ensure that it is as close to being natural as possible. If you choose well here you’ll have everyone commenting are they real? Silk floral products are great if you have a lifestyle that is on the go, or if you travel frequently, then you know you’ll be able to return home and your silk flowers will look as good as when you left.
Floral designs have become simpler over the past few years. A single bloom floating in a small antique bowl, a simple bouquet of gerbera daisies and in the kitchen a variety of special herbs are all ways you can bring floral design in without it being too much. Of course at Holiday times or special occasions its always fun to get into the spirit of the season and add floral designs that not only look attractive but can leave a wonderful scent of the holidays.
When you have high or vaulted ceilings its important to remember the scale of your floral accessories so as they won’t appear to be dwarfed within your room. I love to see a taller than average tree placed in a corner of a room, and use a small floor spotlight behind it which will have shadows cascading across your ceiling, giving a wonderful ambiance to your room. Placing a mirror behind your floral design can be lovely as well. The reflection of your design just seems to make it more special, and with spotlighting or backlighting it has an extra surprise element during the evening hours.
Whatever flowers, plants or trees you choose to use in your home, make sure you enjoy seeing them, smelling them and yes…even talking to them. Just like when someone you love is not feeling well and you send them flowers to cheer them up, so to will floral design in your home keep it a wonderful lively place to be.
