Feeling Floral

Who said the colder months couldn’t be floral? We’re pretty sure it was boring people because no matter what the weather, floral features and décor are a win. Sometimes it takes a little bravery to make your home such a warm atmosphere when the weather outside strongly disagrees with your intentions, but why not? Flowers are such a strong decorating tool and it seems a shame not to include them 4 months out of the year …

Fake it

Obviously, we can’t all fill our homes with Hellebores (a.k.a. the Christmas rose) or the later blooming snowdrop, but the quality of fake flowers has risen drastically in recent years as they have become a beautiful interior accessory. The practicality of fake flowers is astounding! You can match your colour scheme any time of the year, good news for those with warm tones wishing to accessorise in the colder months.

… and they don’t smell, we know there are a lot of people who don’t love some of the stronger smelling flowers, a common one being the lily. Personally, I love the smell and they live fairly well indoors so they have to be a favourite of mine, but you can’t please everyone … nice try lilies.

If you are able to get a few fresh flowers that work with your room, then that is brilliant! But unfortunately, this likely won’t be the case throughout the year and at some point, you will need to cheat nature.

Feature walls

Some of the best feature walls are those with quirky and unique wall-papers and what better way to bring the natural beauty of flowers into your home! You can’t go wrong with a classy floral wall-paper, it has been tried and tested and will always hold a place as a perfect pattern for your walls. It breaks the monotonous nature of the indoors and adds this sense of freedom that comes with more floral décors.

The Real Deal

Nothing quite compares to living growing plants, and although they can become expensive to care for and replenish when they inevitably fade away they are exquisite and can completely change the atmosphere in a room! As mentioned before, at this time of year there aren’t too many bright and colourful flowers and that tends to be what drives people away from the floral look in the winter time but if you have an interior that blends well with cool colours then we insist you take a look at some floral ideas to add to your home.
