To make the flower tappets more realistic, you can try and make them a kind of 3D decoration by adding a wooden set of decorations in the base of your flowers on the wall. Thus, you can mimic flower pots, as if the flowers are planted in the wooden container and use the containers for sitting or storage space.
Corner vases can be the one addition to your beautiful home settings and have that beautiful finish in every corner!
Usually, corner vases are big to small, decorative ones and are put in the living room, corners of bathrooms as well.
You can buy big vases with flowers or insert a corner stand to put smaller flowers in a little vase. Many people combine a corner bookshelf on which they put corner vases - big or small - below the shelves or on one of the shelfs.
Miniature flowers and arrangements
Since we mentioned corner vases and flower decorations, we are to not miss the miniature flowers and arrangements. They are meant to be a beautiful addition to every kind of home decoration: from porcelain to wooden, textile or simply any kind of crafts around the house.
Miniature flower arrangements are additional mini flower ornaments added to a piece of furniture or anything in the house which add a beautiful touch to every home design.
Choosing flower and style
Not everyone is looking for the same style in their home. Some are probably looking for contemporary styles, while others may be seeking a more homely, traditional style. When it comes to choosing flowers, you want them to match the theme of your house. And use interesting containers like metallic or colored vases.
If you are looking for a contemporary style, choose bright, colorful flowers and mix them together. Don’t be afraid to go beyond the limits. Just get creative and imaginative. There are no limits with contemporary styles so go wild!
For those seeking a more traditional look, it is recommended you use formally arranged flowers. Roses, carnations and lilies are all good choices when it comes to choosing flowers for your traditional looking home. Also consider adding exotic flowers in crystal or porcelain vases.
Or perhaps you have a country home and are looking for a nice and simple, country theme. Use interesting containers for your flowers that blend in with your country theme, like teapots, buckets, watering cans, or jars. When it comes to choosing the right flowers to match your intended style, consider flowers like sunflowers, daisies, heather, and tulips. Then you could surround them with greener plants like English ivy or cyclamen to give it that rustic appearance.
If your house is older and you’d like a more classic look, consider adding bouquets of roses, lavender and peonies in softer shades. To give it that classic look, place them in crystal or glass vases.
Living room flower decoration
Living room flower decorations need firstly to fit style and place. Most living room flower decorations come in different vase colors and types of flowers, but for living room flower decorations most people choose corner vases in different lengths and styles.
Putting beautiful, transparent vases in the middle of the living room on the table or anywhere else is also a good idea.
Bedroom flower decoration
From what we have mentioned above, bedroom flower decorations are suitable to be put on/around the bed or on the wall.
You should always be careful in the types of flowers you choose. Some purify the air, but others - if pollen contacts the mouth it can result in an allergy or poisonous reaction.
Choose a bedroom flower in a vase to put alogise your window. These flowers can love the Sun, so take advantage of that and choose a simple, soft color that compliments your bedroom setting.
Kitchen flower decoration
Kitchen flowers are flowers that can have multiple purposes. Adding edible kitchen flowers as herbs that grow is the perfect way to add some life into the room and also use freshly grown and cut herbs out of your mini kitchen garden!
Adding miniature or minimalistic flowers from the above design ideas is also very suitable to the setting, hence the kitchen is a place where it gets busy on a daily basis and simplicity is important.
