Are you trying to add a little something to your gorgeous home but not sure what exactly to go for? Stop thinking furniture or furniture accessories, and go for an amazing flower arrangement that will set the mood for your whole home without breaking the bank.

Renowned American botanist, Luther Burbank, has found out in the early 20th century what latest health studies have revealed only a few years ago – that flowers may actually have health benefits (especially in older people). Burbank used to say that flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul. So how about we take his word for it and add some. Today we’re be bold enough to say that flowers not only add life to a room, they add plenty of positive effects on our emotional well being.
Kitchen flower arrangements
We like to keep things simple. Therefore we at Decoist think that there are two principles for a stunning kitchen; a highly functional design and contrasting colors throughout the kitchen for a dazzling atmosphere. The latter can be achieved with all sorts of accessories, but also with flowers – which allow for change whenever you need to perk up your kitchen’s design.
A dark kitchen will be turned to life with white or yellow flowers, while a bright kitchen would go great with purple, orange or even red.

Flowers for the dining area
A sophisticated meal goes a long way with the beauty and the simplicity of a flower arrangement on your dinner table. There’s no need for posh napkins and cutlery holders if you choose the right colors and forms. White and green (or even yellow) can be combined with a darker table and brighter kitchen cabinets. A contrast between your walls and those purple, orange or red tulips is nothing short of inspiring. One last thing, remember that long flowers and big vases should be great in a large open space – on top of this, it allows for plenty of styling.

Living room flowers
Flowers in the living room should be an easy task; just head to the local market and buy some fresh flowers and they should work well with whatever environment you have. I’d say this is partially true. Unlike other rooms where you want to surprise people, in the living room it’s all about matching colors as much as you can. An elegant place requires for rather elegant, simple flowers. A more modern begs for you to play with shades. White and green, together with white and purple are probably the best choices you can make. But don’t forget darker nuances which you can use to blend with your interiors.

Flowers have a strong healing energy of beauty and grace. According to Feng Shui tradition it’s not only about colors, it’s also about the number of flowers you want to add to your bedroom, about balance. Our suggestion for creating the most sensual atmosphere in the bedroom is to go with delicate flowers like peony, lotus, cherry blossoms, orchid, narcissus, or chrysanthemums. Their scent is not too powerful allowing both for a great sleep and a stunning visual appearance.

Flower arrangements in the office
Researches have discovered that having a pleasing decorated aquarium with beautiful fish at home, can help reduce stress levels, reduces blood pressure and soothe your senses in a way you never imagined. I’d say that the same goes for a vase with fresh flowers with plenty of green and purple hues. Not only will it relax your mind, but having an amazing flower arrangement in your home office should help with anything having to do with your creativity levels. How about these ideas?

Bathroom flower arrangements
Some bathrooms need a revamp, but others just need a spot of color to make them appealing. If you have considered flowers you’re onto something great. I’d go for darker flowers that would contrast with the furniture and all other bright accessories you have in there. I’d also advise you to show your personality by not following any rules of design — the more different your arrangement is, the more beautiful, unique and striking it will appear.
