Ever wonder why people send flowers when someone is sad? Studies have shown that flowers help people to feel less worry and anxiety. Fresh flowers can help lighten the mood, and are a wonderful way to bring a breath of fresh air into your home.
Flowers are one of the easiest ways to elevate the mood and improve the atmosphere. If you’re looking for different ways to bring the blooms indoors, here are some tips to get you started.
If you are looking for flowers that will last year round, consider potted houseplants. Choose a flowering houseplant, like African violets, jasmine, orchids, or peace lilies to brighten up the space and improve air quality in your home.
In some cases, allergies may prevent you from bringing fresh flowers into your home. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have flowers. Many faux flowers today look more real than ever and are a maintenance-free and long lasting alternative to the real thing.
Bringing in fresh flowers is a great way to boost your mood, not to mention they smell great. Look for seasonal blooms and cuttings, or pick up some locally grown flowers from the farmers market. This is the best way to ensure that the flowers will be absolutely fresh, while enabling you to maintain a low carbon footprint.
In order to accommodate the variety of flowers you bring into your home, consider using a traditional clear vase that will not distract from the flowers or clash with your décor. A single-colored vase is another great option.
If flowers aren’t your thing, why not opt for some spectacularly beautiful vases instead? These Cyan Design Sophia Vases can house some beautiful blooms, or be left empty for a design statement that’s just as effective.
