Treat Yourself to a Bouquet of Flowers
Easy Accessory: Fresh Blooms Create Happy Rooms
Placing a fresh bouquet of flowers in a room has the instant effect of making the room look more beautiful and inviting. But did you also know studies have shown fresh flowers improve how we feel in a room, increasing the sense of happiness while decreasing anxiety? It's true! So go ahead and treat yourself to a bouquet of beautiful flowers. Here are some ideas for working them into your décor:
Forsythia branches placed in a worn white pitcher, among brilliant glass bottles, creates a lovely spring table.
A happy arrangement of roses fits right into this cheerful room that appears so comfortable it welcomes you in to sit down and read a good book!
A casual bunch of yellow tulips tightly clustered in a simple vase beautifully completes this corner of the room.
An unexpected mix of lilac and daffodils in complementary colors that pop against one another could not be more vibrant or beautiful set on a rustic white table.
The orange tulips with their bright greenery adds life to this kitchen, appearing as if they were brought home along with the groceries and placed without much thought into a glass vase. The flowers help create a lived-in and inviting environment.
A single flower in full bloom has a transforming effect on this all-white bathroom.
A cluster of hydrangeas pick up a color seen in the floral print, adding a final colorful layer to this bedroom.
Simple is often best. A few pale rose buds bring life to this vignette.
While any color of flower could have been placed in this room, I love that yellow was chosen, repeating and reinforcing the strong color palette of the design.
Bright short stemmed roses set in a white vase introduce the only strong color in the room, making the entire space come to life. This presents an interesting example of how one small pop of color can completely change how a neutral space reads.
In another white space the opposite approach is taken. A wide range of color and pattern is brought in through Kartell Mademoiselle chairs, patterned pillows and a wildly colorful trio of bouquets.
