How to create the perfect floral interior?

Using flowers in your interior is a perfect way to liven up your home. Not only do most flowers have a lovely smell but they also improve your mood and concentration.  In this article, we are happy to share some tips with you to create the perfect floral interior with a maximum impact and minimal effort.

Know your interior

Knowing your interior is a crucial first step in creating the perfect floral interior. Do you have a traditional or classic interior? Then you should definitely go for roses. Whereas Orchids are perfect for modern homes. If you have a Scandinavian interior, we suggest using small and delicate flowers to add an even more ethereal touch. But it also really depends on how you display the flowers. You can opt for an arrangement with lots of beautiful and colourful flowers or keep it simple and use single stems in small vases.

The best spots to display your flowers

Flowers are usually displayed in the more obvious places like living rooms and dining rooms, but what about flowers in your home office for the ultimate mood booster? Or even placing flowers in your bathroom to recreate a spa-like atmosphere? Keep in mind that most flowers don’t appreciate being placed near a fruit bowl, a radiator or somewhere draughty.

The right colours

When it comes to the colours of your flowers we suggest to choose colours which go great with the colours already present in your room. This creates a cohesive appearance. If your furniture has bright colours, choose one key colour for your flowers. If you have a minimalistic colour palette you best opt for bright flowers which will add a bit of warmth to the room. Something you can never go wrong with is white flowers as it ensures a fresh and clean look.

Top tip: keep it simple. One or two different colours with some green foliage will look great – the foliage will enhance the natural beauty of your flower display.

Focal or filler flowers?

If you go for a complete arrangement ensure that each arrangement has focal flowers such as Roses, Dahlias or Lilies. These flowers will be the most important part of your design but you will also need filler flowers such as Gypsophila or Limonium. Oh and don’t forget to add a touch of green: foliage!
