Summer flowers perfect for bedrooms

Summer has arrived and it’s time to take advantage of the abundance that the season brings us! With so many fresh summer flowers to choose from, who knows where to start? Let’s face it, sometimes it’s easier to send flowers to a friend than to buy something perfect for ourselves. Often we decide on a bouquet, buy it or order it through an online florist, and when we arrange it, we realize that we should have chosen something a little different. When buying flowers, the goal is to help lift your mood and not make you feel like you bought the wrong thing.

Spruce up your bedroom

When it comes to decorating your home with fresh summer flowers, sometimes it’s natural to think of filling the kitchen, living room and even the bathroom with their scent and colour. But what about your bedroom? Wouldn’t you like to open your eyes in the morning, take a look around and be greeted by some bright and colourful petals instead of that plain, boring, empty space? Okay, you could go out and buy an ornament or two to put in that open space, but eventually this ornament will become part of the decor and you’ll hardly notice it. However, if you buy fresh flowers, the advantage that they don’t last forever is the fact that you have an excuse to buy new flowers every now and then. Therefore, you can modify the arrangements you buy, try new flowers and designs until you find your favourites.

Reduced pollen

When choosing summer flowers for your bedroom, you should choose blooms that don’t have too much pollen. Even if you’re not allergic, it’s not a good idea to sleep near a flower that releases too much pollen into the air. If you insist on certain flowers like stargazer lilies, for example, ask your florist to remove the pollen. It is possible to do this with many flowers, but it is best to consult a professional first. They can do it for you and that way you don’t have to worry about damaging your flowers in any way.

Ideal colours

Another key to choosing the right flowers for your bedroom is choosing the right colours. There are some colours that work well together and some that just don’t. No matter how many people mix red and pink, for example, it clashes terribly and if you have a pink room, your red flowers will disappear there. On the other hand, purple and yellow look great together, so choose your combinations carefully. Consider flowers like roses, as they come in many colours, are long-lived, and don’t carry as much pollen as many other summer flowers.

With these essential tips in mind, you will find it easier than ever to find the perfect summer flowers to make your bedroom a true sanctuary. Once the blooms start to wilt, you could even make your own potpourri, add some essential oils and enjoy a soothing scent like lavender as you get some sleep.
