Everyone has different personalities and they imprint their personalities on their homes. There are four popular decorating personalities which tend to be used to decorate peoples styles at their home.

I am going to go give you a quick run through of which flowers complement each style.

People who live the lives in a casual manner tend to focus on the simple pleasures of life. The homes they live in may consist of furniture with light pine, natural woods, bleached oak and cotton in neutral tones. These all come together to give the home a kind of stress busting feeling. The flowers which can be added to the home will balance out the effect of the stress busting feeling. Some flowers which will be useful are flowering or green plants like cyclamen, kalanchoe, pothos or ivy. Flowers such as sunflowers, daisies, delphinium or tulips can be placed in a clear glass vase to create a symbol of poetry within the home.
