How to Incorporate Floral Design Into Your Space
It is undeniable that with the advent of spring comes the desire to integrate some floral design into your space. You can do this by incorporating floral art and accessories, or of course, fresh flowers! Here are some tips to get you started.
“Florals for spring . . . groundbreaking.”
These words may have been spoken sarcastically by Meryl Streep while playing the formidable Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada, but it’s undeniable that with the advent of spring comes the desire to integrate some floral design into your space. Here are some tips to help you do just that.
Floral Throw Pillows
Throw pillows are a great option for bringing some color, pattern, and floral design into your space. The great thing is that they can be switched out for different ones come winter, though you may find you like a floral pillow so much that you keep it out all year round. Society Social is a great resource for colorful pillows — their Multicolor Peony Pillow will add a splash of cheerful color to any space. The Orangerie Rose pillow is another great option.
An inexpensive art print with a floral design is a great way to add some botanical beauty to your walls. Pretty floral illustrations can be found on Rifle Paper Co., while gorgeously moody floral photography is available on Etsy from artist Kari Herer.
Decor pieces with a floral motif are a lovely way to add some floral design to your NYC home while incorporating useful objects into your home. Anthropologie has lovely floral rugs, which would make a bold and beautiful statement. If you’re looking for something a little smaller, you can try their Lucerne line of kitchen accessories, which feature a pretty, almost vintage-looking floral pattern. If floral pottery is up your alley, check out UK-based artist Emma Clegg. She crafts porcelain pieces with fine and delicate flowers dancing along the rims and around the outer walls — they’re absolutely stunning. If you’d like to add some beauty products to your vanity, try Aerin’s line of floral-scented lotions and perfumes. The fragrances are lovely but the floral packaging really steals the show — it begs to be left out and admired!
Of course, what better way to incorporate florals into your space this spring than with fresh flowers! This is a little luxury that really helps bring some life and a spring feeling into your space. If you want to do it on a budget, most bodegas in New York City have a large selection of flowers available for purchase. The trick to creating a nice arrangement from bodega flowers is to stick with all one color and type. This provides a chic and sophisticated look, whether it’s tulips, hyacinths, roses, or any other flower; plus, it couldn’t be simpler. Flowers are a wonderful way to welcome spring into your space without breaking the bank!
