The best, quickest and cheapest way to brighten and colour your day and your home is by buying some flowers. It sounds so simple, but adds so much to an interior. Have a flick through the pages of an interiors’ magazine, and have a good look at the pictures.
Most of them will have some form of plant life in them. This is the perfect way to make a house feel like a home – it adds that personal touch that man-made items can’t always do. If you have a garden full of flowers, bring some inside. If you live in an apartment and don’t have a garden, pop past a florist – or even the supermarket – and pick a bunch. Hey! Pick a few! You may even be lucky enough to have someone buy them for you! It’s an instant pick-me-up.
I also have a few bunches of faux flowers throughout my house. Use good quality ones, as you don’t want them to look cheap and nasty. Get creative with your vases too. It doesn’t have to be a “traditional” vase. Use any type of glassware, tea candle holders; even old jars for a more rustic look.
Sky’s the limit. Have some fun!
