Fresh flowers have a way of bringing any space to life.
Pip Brett is a seasoned floral addict and has over 13 years’ experience in creating stunning interiors through her retail store.
She said they can be particularly effective in the colder months and “even just a touch of greenery will make a space feel more homely”.
Creating a home full of life and vibrancy doesn’t have to be hard. Try these tips to bring florals into your home:
If you can’t afford the finely arranged blooms at your local florist, then visit the local supermarket.
The bunches may seem spindly but if you add greenery and flowers from your own garden, you can fill a vase with all sorts of flowery goodness. You could also try using good quality faux flowers.
Go crazy with cushions. They’re cheap, easy to change and are also small enough to be stored from season to season.
Pip stocks double-sided cushions in her store with florals printed on one side and patterns or solid colours on the other. That way you can change your look up from day to day.
Wallpapering just one wall can be a great way to bring flowers in, without investing too much in the look. Choose from large scale florals or a jumble of colourful blooms that can be coordinated with your furnishings.
Or try a large picture of florals. Close-up flowers are a work of art in themselves and would be a brilliant piece on any wall.
Take the eye down to the ground and add florals to your floors. The pattern will dominate the room so make sure your furnishings are less fussy, but don’t hesitate to complement the rug with cushions in the same tones.
