Choose The Right Colors and Placement For Your Flowers


Some people have a natural artistic ability when it comes to home décor and design but for most of us we need a little help. A few simple tips on what type of floral arrangements and colors can go a long way in making your home beautiful.

Before you decide on where to put your fresh cut flowers, silks or dried flowers, you need to understand a few simple rules.

Color is very important!

1) If you have vibrant colors in your room such as a red wall and rich colored furniture then you will want to have soft colors for your flowers. An all white or soft creamy yellows can make a better statement than a brightly colored arrangement that will just blend in with the other vibrant colors.

2) If you have neutral colors in the room then brighter colored arrangements will bring life to any room. Look at the color scheme you have going. If the room has white or creamy walls and tan colored furniture for example, you will want to liven things up with colored accent pillows and floral arrangements of browns, reds and yellow. Remember you want to enhance but not overwhelm with them.

The size of your arrangements matters a great deal! You can easily overwhelm with an arrangement too big for a coffee table. If you look at any of the early morning talk shows you can get a good example of what to put on a small table and the larger flowers they put in the back ground. The larger flowers are always behind them and a little to the left or right of them.

It kind of follows the rule in photography, the 3rd, the 3rd and 3rd rule. There is a great motivational print called "Individuality" which demonstrates this perfectly. In a picture of a field of sunflowers, one stands out. All the sunflowers are about a 3rd of the way up. The sunflower standing alone is one 3rd to the right of the picture. Click on the blue letters motivational print and you'll see what I mean.

This rule can be applied at home. If you look in design magazines you'll see a floral arrangement on the fireplace and it will most likely be placed to the left or right of the mantle. The only time you will see it in the middle is if it is a long low arrangement or several smaller arrangements.

Larger arrangements are usually placed against a wall where they are accent pieces but make a bold statement. Large arrangements can also be placed in a foyer where it is the focal point and sets the tone of the rest of the house.

Whether you are designing with flowers or flower prints for your home I hope these few tips make it easier for you.
