FLOWER POWER FOR YOUR HOME!
Flowers are the icing on the cake when decorating and bring a piece of nature into your home. But which flowers go with which vase, and how do you bring unusual pieces into focus? Here you will find pretty ideas to imitate - from slim and simple vases to gold pieces with a retro flair.
SIMPLE SCANDINAVIAN STYLE WITH NARROW PIECES OF JEWELRY
Need a hygge feeling? The Scandi style also asserts itself with the accessories. Small arrangements of bottle vases in a "homemade" look and in restrained colors such as warm gray and blue tones as well as white are very popular and bring cosiness into your own four walls. The good thing: the slim vases do not take up much space and thus also beautify narrow sideboards or the kitchen table.
“Less is more!” Is the motto of the minimalist living style, and the flowers adhere to this as well. Subtle gypsophila in white or purple tones goes perfectly with the clean, Scandinavian style. The filigree branches with the fine flowers not only look good: Since gypsophila is cheap and lasts a long time, your wallet is also happy.
Decoration tip: In elongated vases with a narrow opening, it looks harmonious if the thin stems still have some air and are not too short; when shortening the stems, work in small steps.
Dried flowers are also cheap and match the simple Scandinavian style. Whether pampas or laugurus grass, eucalyptus or craspedia (also called drumstick): dried flowers are currently experiencing a revival . They are both individually in a stylish vase and tied as a bouquet a strikingly beautiful eye-catcher.
LARGE VASES FOR A GRAND ENTRANCE
With rather bulbous vases with wider openings, it looks particularly nice if the bouquet takes up the shape of the vase. Then it can also be a little more voluptuous. A band on the stems holds everything together - so the beautiful flowers and leaves stay in place.
Where there is plenty of space for water, roses are a particularly good choice, because the queen of flowers is really thirsty! In addition, there are carnations and Inca lilies in rich red and pink tones, rounded off with lots of fresh green. If the bouquet (not including the stems) is about as high as the vase itself, the result is a harmonious overall impression.
Decoration tip: The stems of the individual flowers come out beautifully in glass vases and the bouquet looks wonderfully modern. To ensure that it stays that way, the water should be replaced every other day at the latest so that no green coating forms.
RETRO FLAIR WITH SMOKED GLASS AND GOLD
Opulent vases in a retro look are real decorative highlights even without their contents, it gets even better when selected treasures are added. This is where the fine art of flower making becomes apparent, because too little can quickly appear lost, too much overloaded.
Our tip: It is better to rely on loners and emphasize them with a bit of green in the background, as for example with the solitaire flower in yellow-orange, which goes perfectly with a vase with gray smoked glass and a golden rim. Add some fresh eucalyptus, which not only looks beautiful but also exudes a great smell, and the still life is ready.
Hydrangeas are true all-rounders, because they not only make a great impression when fresh, they can also stand in the vase for a long time after the leaves have dried. A single thick flower head looks particularly classy and goes well with vases in gemstone colors such as bordeaux, royal blue or emerald green.
A CLEAN AFFAIR: FLOWERS STAY FRESH LONGER
Fresh flowers in the apartment create a nice atmosphere and spread a good mood! It doesn't always have to be whole bouquets, even small vases with one or two beautiful flowers on the bedside table or in the kitchen automatically put a little smile on our faces.
HERE ARE A FEW TIPS TO KEEP CUT FLOWERS FRESH FOR A LONG TIME:
- Water stains in vases disappear in no time with denture cleaner. And the cleaner the vase, the longer the flowers will last.
- Cut the cut flowers diagonally with a sharp knife so that they can better absorb the water.
- The vase water should not be too cold or too warm, temperatures around 30 degrees are ideal.
- Roses do not like calcareous water. Add a dash of lemon, vinegar or a special freshness-retaining agent and the pH value of the water is neutralized.
