Inviting nature indoors.
Some years ago it was quite common to have houses with compounds or gardens in almost every city. But today, nearly all such houses have been knocked down into flats. Ten twenty or even more families can now occupy the space which was formerly occupied by one. Therefore, today home decor with flower arrangements is becoming increasingly popular. A flower bed in your flat, a few square inches of space in your verandah or balcony, a flowering plant on your window sill, can serve as a mini garden. Flowers can express your deepest feelings and splash bright colours in your life. Of course, flowers look simply great where they belong – on the tree or plant, but when nature offers them to you, it would be a shame to refuse. The greater the care you take of them, the longer will be there refreshing presence in your house.
The typical characteristics of the room in which the flower arrangement is to be placed should determine its aspects. If, for instance, the room is over furnished, an emphasis on simplicity would look better. Choosing the perfect place for the flower arrangement is as important as the arrangement itself. So, put the arrangement in a place where it is most likely to be noticed, an arrangement against a simple uncluttered background is ideal.
CHOICE OF COLOURS
A predominantly red arrangement will look good against shades of grey or pastel colours. A multicoloured background will do no justice to your labour. The colours in the flower arrangement send us a message of their own. A predominance of red produces an environment of warmth, while blue is a symbol of coolness and Green represents safety and tranquillity.
Let your imagination run as you experiment with different shapes in the arrangement of flowers. Like the circular shapes that can be viewed from all sides. You can use roses, chrysanthemums and foliage for arranging flowers in round vases. Be particular about the different types of flowers that you are arranging, for an exceptionally good arrangement, first select the right vase carefully. A flat vase suits the low tables. Tall flowers suit vertical shapes. Vases made in rectangular shape suits the box type stool.
Triangular vases are good to use everywhere. In short all arrangement and shapes depend on the kind of flowers, leaves, the shape of the vase and most important of all where the vase is kept. Each factor makes a significant impact on the look of the arrangement as a whole. So make the best of the flowers available to bring warmth and colour into your house.
