Dried Flower Decorations

 

Whether you are moving into a new home, or refurbishing or revamping your existing home, adding flowers to your decor is without a doubt one of the simplest, yet most elegant ways to decorate your home. Flowers by their very nature are great at making your home feel vibrant, cheery and welcoming.

The art of decorating living spaces with flowers is not a new concept. Even though lawns and gardens are common features in many homes, floral decorations inside the house have been a part of interior design and decor for a very long time. Not only do flowers liven up any space they are decorated with, they are also very good at making such spaces look elegant and classy. In other words, flowers should be one of your top considerations when you think about decorating your home.

Dried flowers are increasingly gaining popularity as a home decoration option. Even though most people don’t think about flowers at all, instead opting for new furniture and fixtures, accessories and other decorative items, using dried flowers is an environmentally friendly (and pocket friendly too!) way to truly enhance the esthetic appeal of any living space. Not to mention how easy it is to place flowers in certain key locations around your home.

  1. Dried flower wreaths

Did you know that wreaths can be used for more occasions than Christmas? You can hang a wreath made of dried flowers on your door and it will look good all year round! Wreaths that are made with dried flowers are unique and they are cost effective as well, since you will not need to purchase another wreath to replace it. Dried flower wreaths are durable and reusable, and elegantly enhance the overall esthetics of your home.

  1. Potpourri

Potpourri, which is also spelled pot pourri, is a mixture of dried flower and plant parts, such as petals and leaves, along with spices, fruit peels and aromatic oils. This mixture is not only beautiful to look at, but also provides a pleasant and fragrant aroma. Potpourri is colorful and is used as a room freshener. Potpourri, when placed in clear bowls or containers, can really enhance the appearance of its surroundings. Sometimes, potpourri is also laid out on trays alongside candles.

You can decorate shelves around your home with dried flowers in vases. This kind of decoration is very eye-catching and is sure to add a touch of sophistication and glamor to your shelves. You can use transparent glass vases, or opaque ones that suit the background. Floral styling on shelves allows you plenty of scope to experiment with layouts and designs.
