Today is National Floral Design Day which got me thinking of all the ways flowers can be incorporated into the design of spaces.
The first up is the obvious, actual floral arrangements. Placing flowers throughout your home can give new life to the space. Try using flowers in more places then just your dining table.
A bookcase or built-in is a great place to add flowers. The organic nature of the flowers contrast beautifully with all of the hard surfaces.
A tray placed on your bed, ottoman or cocktail table with a floral arrangement adds a soft touch.
Flowers can also be added through one of my favorite additions to a home…wallpaper!
As well as in tile designs, cabinet hardware, lighting and…
Flowers are also great for adding dimension to a space which can be done through art and sculptures.
The ceramic flowers on these vases add great detail to the centerpieces that would otherwise fall flat.
I hope you enjoyed some of these ideas, what are some of your favorite ways to incorporate flowers into your space?
I am beyond excited for the return of spring! I am not sure if everyone else feels this way, but this winter seems to be lasting forever! Today I am going to share 5 out of 10 ways that I get my home ready for spring. You can find the other 5 over at Ashley Carpenters blog Joyfully Growing next week! I hope you enjoy and please do not forget to share how you get your home ready for the season!
Spring is not only a messy time for shoes with the rain, but also a time to update your doormat. I just purchased this beauty (with a “C” monogram of course) and I just love the green stripes. You can find it here!
Another addition you can add to your front entry is a fun springtime wreath. This is a purchase I just made and I am so excited for it to arrive. This particular wreath combines two of my favorite things, tulips and pink!
Some of my favorite colors remind me of of spring so this next tip is an easy one for me. Add spring color throughout your home. I have color all over my house, but when springtime hits, I love to update home accessories with fresh colors that exude springtime. Some ideas include flowers, books, napkins and photo frames.
Changing or updating your bedding can completely transform a bedroom. I like to keep my coverlet white or cream and add fun pillows and throws depending on the season. Here I incorporated pink, lavender and mint.
The last tip that I have to update your home for spring is not something you can see, but smell. I currently have an obsession with essential oils and changing the scent to coordinate with the season is something that I believe enhances the feel of your home instantly. Right now I am loving the Purification essential oil from Young Living.
