My Dream Canvas: Flowers: Home Decorating India
It is spring and there are flowers in bloom everywhere. Flowers and home décor go hand in hand. I consider flowers to be the biggest style statement in the design world. It is the accessory that brings glamour and freshness to any room. It can blend into any theme – Modern, Eclectic, Contemporary, Traditional, Tropical, Asian and so many others.
The biggest design dilemma is to fit in all the pieces you love and create that perfect room that you have envisioned. Like a jigsaw puzzle, it takes a while for it to come together. On any given day your home can get a fresh new look by adding a few flowers. Not gigantic bouquets that often steal the show or overpower your home, but a few bunches here and there. Don’t restrict yourself to traditional vases — practically anything that holds water can be your new vase. A few flowers can be a quick and inexpensive way to add that bit of glam into your space. My Dream Canvas is not only a design blog but also a visual diary of my own home. My home is an ever-changing palette where I often try and create something new. I often use flowers to perk up a corner or brighten up a room.
A Japanese tea set with on an oriental table and vase with some bright flowers could add a touch of the exotic orient to your home. Perhaps, Zen and the Art of Flower Design?
A beloved heirloom can add a bit of old world charm and a hint of timeless romance to your living room. These silver glasses are from my grandmother. They are nearly a hundred years old.
Home decorating India: Flowers displayed in an oriental brass incense holder can be a traditional, yet sophisticated look.
Feel like a trip to the beach? Give your home a tropical look with brightly coloured bottles that can be used as vases. For me, nothing reflects sea and sand more than turquoise!
Hope you enjoyed a peek into my world. A simple flower may be all you need to become the next design diva.
Here’s another tip — Don’t wait for someone to give you flowers, go and buy them yourself.
Give yourself the gift of flowers. I promise they will make you smile and make your home look fabulous!!
