We are in the middle of winter and, although our minds tell us that spring is just a few weeks away, it might seem like we have to wait an eternity for warmer weather. Not to worry, however, because you can choose wonderful winter flowers to decorate your home and office until then.
Winter and our moods
When the trees are no longer green, well most of them anyway, and the skies are grey more often than not, it can take a toll on your mood. Yes, there are flowers that bloom in the winter months but they are not as common as spring and summer flowers. The dullness of our surroundings can make anyone feel at least slightly depressed. Which is why it is so important to take the necessary steps to improve your environment. There are a number of ways to do this. One of the most effective is to brighten the room with some beautiful winter flowers.
Brighten up larger rooms
If you have a larger space like your living room or a reception area at work, you should definitely opt for a larger bouquet of winter flowers. The arrangement does not have to be over the top but, since the room is more spacious, a larger flower display will have a greater impact. When choosing colours, you can include a fair amount of white since it is winter after all. But you should also include some splashes of colour. Now, since the holiday season has just passed, you might want to avoid anything that could appear festive. In other words, red and green are two colours you should avoid. Yes, you can include green in the form of foliage but it should not be your typical dark green Christmas greenery. Pink and purple or yellow and blue bouquets are fabulous this time of year. You can include white blooms for good measure and you can be sure that they will brighten the room perfectly.
Colour for small spaces
Smaller areas like the little table in the entrance hall of your home or the bathroom at work can be spruced up with bud flower arrangements. The colour of your winter flowers will depend on the colour scheme of the room. For example, if the room is mostly white and void of any bright colours, you probably do not want to display white blooms because they will go unnoticed. Instead, you can opt for something pink, purple or blue. A single, perfect pink and white oriental lily will look amazing since it is rich in colour and texture. If you want something slightly bigger, use a cluster of three stems. The uneven number makes for a beautifully balanced display.
Now that you have a few ideas for winter flowers for your home and office, it’s time to spruce things up! If you are still not sure about what will suit the room best, you can always ask your florist for some expert advice.
