Nobody can minimize the impact the home environment has on our emotional state and comfort. As a fan of interior design and DIY projects, I’m always looking for new ways to enhance the space I live in. But home improvement is not always easy, especially if you’re on a tight budget. One of the simplest ways to add color, style and warmth without breaking the bank is by inviting spring freshness in with some lovely blooms or flowery decor.
Wall decals can do wonders to a plain space, even if you’re living in a rental. You may not be allowed to paint but they will let you spruce up the place with some non-damaging wall stickers. And the effect is just fantastic.
Yet, there is no substitute for live plants and their positive influence on your quarters. Whether you go with potted plants or flower arrangements, the possibilities are endless, depending on your disposition and personality; if you’re the romantic type and want to infuse your home with subtle sweetness, choose an arrangement made of peonies, carnations, and ivy; purple asters, hollyhocks, orchids or lilacs are also inspired choices if you’re aiming for a dreamy environment.
Red roses can be used to render a classic image of beauty and style. There’s nothing more enchanting than some cheerful roses sitting pretty in simple, transparent bottles to liven up a dreary space.
For a more dramatic feel you can use dark lilies or other intense color flowers. A geometric vase of real blossoms placed on the floor may turn your home into a statement of elegance and sophistication.
Worried that your significant other won’t appreciate your flowery efforts? Know there are some masculine flower arrangements that will add oomph to your place without hurting the overall balance. You can choose bold colors and rich textures, not too perfumed or delicate, and place them in simple, clear glass vases or in heavy dark-colored ceramic containers. Lavender freesias, purple iris or cacti arrangements would perfectly complement a neutral design in earth tones.
If you want to go even further to update your apartment’s look, turn to nature inspired décor. Flowery or embroidered pillows, a vibrating, floral-patterned fabric, a chic wallpaper or live wall art can transform any room into a spring retreat.
