Spring is the perfect time of year to add some floral accents to your home. After a long and dreary winter, most people are ready to welcome spring with bright colors and floral patterns. Whether you prefer a formal look, a casual and colorful decorating style, or something completely fanciful and fun, flowers can really add to the overall look of your home. Here are a few ideas you can use to help get your home decorated for spring.
Floral Themed Wall Art
Wall art has long been one of the more popular home decorating items. Because a room’s walls are generally visible from almost every angle, any decorative touches that are added there receive a lot of attention. Flower wall sculptures are a great addition to your spring decorating theme. Available in a wide variety of styles, materials, colors and sizes, these decorative wall pieces range from beautifully realistic to interestingly abstract. Metal wall art pieces can be especially effective as part of a contemporary decorating style. However, rustic pieces of metal wall art can also add a beautiful touch to country and traditional decorating styles.
Tapestry wall hangings are another form of wall art that can be quite effective. You’ll find a wide variety of wall tapestries with a floral theme, making it easy to add a colorful and bright touch to your rooms. Depending on your overall decorating style and personal preferences, you could choose a hanging that features a very realistic design. There are also many styles that have a quaint or old-fashioned look to them, which often works well with a floral or garden theme.
Decorating with Live or Faux Flowers
It’s hard to beat the beauty and overall sensory appeal of real flowers when decorating your home. Not only are they beautiful, but flowers can also add a nice fragrance to your rooms. Decorate your shelves, table tops and mantel with floral arrangements displayed in vases. Or, display a beautiful bouquet of flowers in a hanging wall vase to grab plenty of attention. Although real flowers are especially nice, sometimes they can be inconvenient to care for, especially if they are displayed in an area that is difficult to reach. In these cases, realistically designed silk flowers or other faux blooms can work well.
When decorating your home with real or faux flowers, it’s usually best to stick with flower varieties that are in season. Not only will this make it less expensive to purchase your flowers, but this technique will also give your home a nice seasonal look. Changing your floral arrangements with the seasons is also a great way to add plenty of variety to your home decorating scheme.
Floral Print Fabrics
Fabric accents are another great way to introduce floral patterns into your overall decorating plan. To add a seasonal look to your living room, sew or purchase floral print covers for your throw pillows. Small floral prints can also work well for country window treatments. Or, decorate your kitchen with table linens and hand towels featuring a floral design.
