It’s spring, and heading toward summer, and many of you have flowers on the brain. From fashionable floral print dresses and summer tops, to flowers growing in your yard, the warm time of the year is all about cultivating and adding some color to help brighten the already bright days. It’s pretty easy to add some color to your home, inside and out, using flowers.
Flowers in your yard make it more attractive and give you more curb appeal. Flowers in your home add a nice aroma, among other things. Think about it- giving flowers to someone normally gives them a smile on their face, so having some in your home can help promote daily smiles!
Flowering Trees Outdoors
One of the best things in the spring is the flowers on trees. Flowering trees can add so much beauty to a yard or a business. Plus, the scent of all of those flowers will surely waft through your open windows.
You can choose flowering trees that are purely decorative, such as the magnolia, or maybe get some fruit trees that will flower prior to bearing fruit. That’s twice the pleasure from one tree.
Flowers Inside And Out
While flowering trees can bring a lot of bright beauty and color to your yard, they won’t really it inside the home. You can brighten your home with potted indoor plants, like orchids and others. You can also buy bouquets of various flowers and various colors to decorate with.
If you grow your own flower gardens you can pick right from your own yard to bring into the home. Flower beds outdoors can add aesthetics to your yard, and are a great hobby for people who have the time.
Maybe you have a flower allergy, or you don’t have time for flower beds, you can still add some beautiful floral color to your life, without the sneezing or labor. Simply look into floral patterns when you are shopping for furniture and home decor. Floral curtains would be one of the easiest additions to any home.
Looking for a new couch? Consider a floral pattern that goes with the colors of your home. Maybe opt for some floral art to hang on the wall. Floral decor can add whimsy to your home, and helps to bring the beauty of spring into your home.
You could also mix floral decor and real flowers, or opt for some faux flowers. Hobby shops everywhere sell very real looking floral arrangements, and items to make your own floral arrangements. You can create different centerpieces for holidays, or every month of the year, even including florals that can still be found in winter, like holly and evergreens.
