Tips for Harmonizing the Colors in Your Floral Arrangements
Bringing together the colors within your floral design is key to having a beautiful creation. If you stop by a flower shop and study how colors are synchronized in your favorite floral designs, you will gain some ideas of how you want your own floral arrangements to look. Also, due to today?s wonderful technology you can find a vast selection of flower arrangement pictures online. As you explore different styles, remember that there are two major categories for arrangements. The more natural style uses flowers from matching areas or times of year. The inherent beauty of a garden or flowered meadow is captured in this technique. A different style focuses on the color or the shape of the flowers used. This style is commonly found at events, like weddings, and other celebrations. A tip when arranging these flowers is to arrange within the same color but use different hues of that color.
Silk Grass Arrangements
One less well known but interesting and attractive way to decorate your house is to use arrangements with artificial grass. This decoration tool will work especially well for you if you live on a ranch, in the West, or in a desert-like environment. Grass arrangements are typically smaller than plants and can be compared to silk flower arrangements. Not only do silk grasses work well on their own, they also make great ornaments for bigger plants and trees. Another place you may put silk grass is by indoor water fountains and along windows. You will be credited with choosing a unique and refreshing decoration for your home. The more you play with different ideas and elements, the easier it will be to find the perfect look for each room in your house.
To Buy or to Rearrange? That is the Question
While I am shopping, I am often tempted to buy yet another decorative piece for my home. This mode of thought not only leaves me constantly wanting for the next available item but also leaves my wallet empty. All too often that purchase ends up leaving my home at the next yard sale. I have been surprised to discover that rearranging my furniture and decorations is often more satisfying?and flattering?than adding something new. Sometimes I do something drastic (rearrange an entire room), and sometimes the change is more subtle (swapping this picture for that painting), but it still gives me the feeling of having a nice change in the house. This way, I am expanding my artistic ability and sparing my wallet!
