It doesn’t matter if they are fresh, natural, dry, unnatural or handmade, decorating with flowers is one of the keys for a gorgeous decoration. But it’s not so simple, you should have into account the colour of your walls and furniture when choosing your flowers. Avoid to mix too many colours in the same spaces, because your decoration may look overloaded.

For example, in spaces where the walls are painted with bright colours, you should opt for pale flowers such as vanilla tones or white flowers such as margaritas. However, if your walls are white or pastel, you can introduce some intensity in your decoration with colourful flowers.

In terms of size, tall flowers look great in empty corners. You can place a big vase in a corner or a tall plant in order to create a peaceful and beautiful space.
