It is no secret that using fresh flowers in your home is one of the easiest ways to give any room a new look with minimal effort, and orchids are a popular pick. Orchid plants can be used in both elegant and simple design styles and can be dressed up or down depending on the type of container your display them in. Readily available in most areas, orchids will always be a welcome addition to any home.
Perfect for minimalist styles
Whether you cannot get enough of modern farmhouse appeal or prefer the contemporary look, minimalist decorating styles are a perfect match for orchid plants. Purchase white orchids to complement the neutral color palette in simplistic decorating styles. Display orchids in clear glass vases to complete the unspoiled and laid-back look.
Less is more when it comes to minimalist decorating, so choose only one or two orchids to display in a room for best results. A single orchid makes a stunning centerpiece for a kitchen or dining room table. A single orchid can also bring a small bathroom to life when displayed on a vanity.
Cottage and coastal decorating
Cottage or coastal homes are a perfect setting for orchids with their tropical flair. Dress up a coffee or accent table by displaying an orchid in a large seashell, clamshell vase, or wicker basket. Old teapots or teacups make charming vases for orchids in a cottage home.
Create a nautical grouping for a coastal home by using three orchids placed individually in small glass bottles to create a colorful focal point in a living room or bedroom. Use jute string or beach-themed ribbon to create a bow around the neck of each bottle.
Elegant and formal decorating
If your home is all about elegance and sophistication, orchids will be a perfect fit. Place tall orchid flowers in a crystal or metallic vase to refresh your entryway or foyer. Place small candles on each side of the vase to create a touch of elegant ambiance.
Purple and white orchids mixed will give your display a royal look that is sure to grab attention. For additional elegance, hang a mirror behind the grouping to reflect the beauty of the orchids and ambient light.
Whether you want to create a stunning entryway into your home or freshen up a small bathroom, orchids are up to the task. Available in a variety of colors, you can use them to add a pop of color to a neutral interior or soften the harshness of a bright room. Their elegant—yet simplistic—look makes them a great fit for any interior decorating style.Share
