Spring blooms to brighten your living room
Spring is here and you will notice all the plants and trees around you coming back to life. The days are getting longer and the air has a superb sweet smell. You can pack away all those thick and heavy clothes and take this opportunity to give your home a beautiful new look with pretty spring blooms. If you are not sure how to spruce up your living room, here are some fantastic tips.
An inviting atmosphere
When you host guests, you want to make sure that they feel welcome. You can create a warm environment by adding the right spring blooms to your communal areas such as your living room. Your living room will usually be the biggest room in your home which means that this is where you can allow larger bouquets to really shine and show them off. You will need to decide if you would like to display the bouquet in a corner or in the middle of the room. If you want to display it in a corner, you can choose a relatively tall display. Alternatively, you can select a shorter arrangement to set on the coffee table in the middle of your room. Either way, you can be sure that your spring blooms will brighten the room and grab the attention of your guests every time.
Compliment the current décor
When selecting spring blooms for your living room, you will need to consider factors like the existing décor in the room. For instance, if you have a rustic theme, you should look for blooms that are full of texture and opt for colours like those found in a field of wild flowers. If you have more of a Victorian theme, you should opt for blooms that have a ruffled appearance but are silky-looking too. Roses and carnations are excellent examples. The colours you want to include are pastels like light pink, purple, off-white and some dusty green here and there.
A modern alternative
Another popular decorative theme in many homes is a modern style. The right spring blooms for this type of environment are those with bold colours and strong lines. Consider something like dark-coloured roses or even an orchid plant. While cut orchids are excellent in arrangements, many people prefer displaying the plant because it lasts that much longer. You can even opt for bud arrangements or create a tablescape by arranging an uneven number of displays along your coffee table.
Choose a vase
Apart from choosing the right spring blooms, you will also need to select the perfect vase or container to hold them. A rustic theme looks lovely in a copper bucket or a retro watering can. A Victorian theme bouquet will look amazing in a detailed ceramic vase. Modern arrangements, on the other hand, look fantastic in plain vases. Examples include glossy ceramics (plain white, green or even black), shiny chrome vases or even plain glass vases.
Spring blooms can help brighten your living room and emphasize the decorative theme that you have chosen. If you are not sure what to choose for your home, take a look around online. Your online florist will have a section dedicated to spring flowers that you can browse until you find the perfect design for your home. If you want something that will last longer than a fresh cut bouquet, remember that you can always browse potted plants too.
