Decorating with flowers: fresh flowers, dried flowers, plants… when nature conquers the house!
Flowers are increasingly used as a real furnishing accessory; they are able, in fact, to enrich and perfume the environment giving beauty, colour and light to the house.
Whether the flowers are dried or fresh doesn’t matter! Nature is never trivial and never tires the eye of the observer. Anyway, it is not necessary to fill the house with a lot of flowers, instead, it is enough to create a hygge environment that reflects our personality but also the mood of the moment.
A vase full of roses or tulips can brighten up a monochrome or too minimalist environment. Or if placed on a dining table it will be the best form of welcome for our guests.
If you do not have time to take care of fresh flowers, you can always opt for compositions of dried flowers that manage to maintain their colouring and beauty for a long time.
The dried flowers are excellent because they can adapt to any type of furniture and design. hey can withstand any climate, cold and heat and are ideal when there are children or pets in the house.
We have never to forget to place our flowers in the right place! When it comes to fresh flowers it is always good to avoid exposing them to direct sunlight. Sunlight is certainly a good thing for your apartment, but direct light can be destructive for our flowers.
Another serious danger to the health of your flowers is the heating, fireplaces and air conditioners: as you can guess, these are not suitable for plants, and flowers must be kept away from these sources of heat or cooling.
“Flowers have a facial expression, like men or animals. Some seem to smile; others have a sad expression; some are thoughtful and distrustful; still others are simple, honest and upright, like the broad-faced sunflower and the mauve”.
(Henry Ward Beecher)
