In this article, we will give you a few ideas on how to use flowers in your home.

How to decorate with flowers at home:

1. In the Entryway

One of the best places to start is by decorating your entryway with flowers. This is the first thing guests will see when they enter your home, so you could make a great impression by adding a luxurious dried flower arrangement.

We recommend choosing a flower arrangement that suits your style and placing it on a console table or a shelf near the front door.

2. In the Living Room

The living room is a great place to add some flowers to the space. Whether you have a flowery or minimalist style, there are flower arrangements that will work well in this room.

We recommend selecting a neutral flower arrangement as it is sure to suit any decor style. Place your flower arrangement on a side table or coffee table in the living room. We have created the ultimate guide on how to style your coffee table to compliment your flowers.

Try placing a vase of flowers on a side table or in the corner of the room to brighten up the space. If you have a fireplace, consider adding flowers to the mantelpiece for a touch of elegance.

3. On the dining table

One of our favourite places to add flowers is on the dining table. Not only do they look great, but they also make for a great conversation starter when entertaining guests.

We recommend selecting a tall dried flower arrangement so it doesn’t take up too much space on the dining table. If you have a larger table, you could even try placing a few smaller flower arrangements down the middle of the table.

4. In a bookshelf

Adding flowers to your bookshelf is a great way to brighten up the space and add a touch of nature. If you have an empty spot on your bookshelf, try placing a vase of flowers or a flower pot in the space. This is also a great way to show off your favourite flowers.

We have created a style guide with tips on how to decorate a bookshelf.

5. Floral Wall Art

If you’re looking for a really unique flower decor idea, why not try floral wall art? This is a great way to add some life to a plain wall and is perfect for flower lovers.

You can either buy or make your own floral wall art, and there are lots of different designs to choose from.

Our favourite floral wall art pieces are the stunning art pieces by Australian based artist Kimmy Hogan. Her pieces showcase beautiful flowers in colours that can be made to suit any space.

6. As a wall hanging

If you don’t have any empty spots on your walls, why not try hanging flowers instead? This is a great way to add some colour to your home.

You can either use fresh or dried flowers, and there are lots of different ways to do this. Try attaching a flower garland to a wall, or using flower pots with plants like string of pearls that trail down.

Alternatively, you can opt for a dried flower wall hanging. These large, striking pieces are very low maintenance and become the statement piece of any room.

7. In the bedroom

The bedroom is the perfect place to add some tranquility with flowers. Choose a flower arrangement that is calm and relaxing, like an orchid arrangement or native flower arrangement.

You could also try incorporating florals into the bedroom by choosing bedding with flowers on it.

8. On a side table

Another great place to display flowers is on a side table. This is a great way to add some colour and texture to the room.

If you’re struggling to find a spot for your flower arrangement, try using a small side table. You could also use a tray to hold your flowers and place it on a larger table.

Try using a variety of flower pots and vases in different shapes and sizes to create an eye-catching display.

9. In a floor vase

If you have a large open space in your home, why not try using a floor vase to display your flowers? This is a great way to make a big impact and add some height to the room. We love seeing pampas grass styled in a large floor vase as it is often soft, luxurious and a great neutral look for any home decor style.

We recommend choosing a floor vase that is made from a natural material like bamboo or rattan for a boho look. These floor vases look great with the rustic look of the dried pampas.

10. On a windowsill 

If you have a lot of windows in your home, why not try using them to display your flowers? Place a flower pot or vase on the windowsill and enjoy the natural light that comes through.

If you’re using a flower pot, try choosing a pot with a saucer to catch any excess water. This will help prevent any water damage to your windowsill.

We only recommend displaying fresh flowers on a windowsill as dried flowers need to be kept out of direct sunlight to ensure they last for years.

11. Featured in a nursery 

Decorating a nursery with flowers is a gorgeous way to display flowers. We recommend choosing flower arrangements that are soft and calming, like a neutral flower bouquet.

You could also try using a dried flower mobile to hang over the changing table. Or, you could use a dried flower wall hanging. These are great ways to keep your little one entertained and add to some colour and life to the nursery.

12. Decorate the backyard

If you have a backyard, why not try using it to display your flowers? This is a great way to add some colour and life to the space. Try creating a flower garden or using flower pots to add interest to the area. You could also hang flower baskets from trees or use them as part of your fence decoration.

Conclusion

When styling flower displays, it’s important to think about what look you are going for. Do you want a wild and free look or something a little more structured? Perhaps you want to inject a pop of colour into a neutral room or create an opulent display for a special event. Once you have nailed down the style, it’s time to start adding in your blooms.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to flower decoration at home. Whether you’re looking for a simple flower arrangement or something more elaborate, there’s sure to be a flower decor idea that will suit your needs.
