Say It With Flowers
The décor of your house reflects the real you --- your temperament, interest, and of course mood. A house decorated with fresh flowers can rejuvenate your mood. MakaanIQ shares ideas on how to adorn every part of your house with blossoms in every hue.
Living room is one place where your creativity can flourish. You can choose large, beautiful and bright flowers if you have a dull drawing room. Introduce red roses or sunflowers at the centre of your table and let the conversation rolling with guests. On the contrary, if your room has dramatic colours then go for white and pink roses, giving it a subtle look. Don't use high fragrant flowers in your drawing room as your guests may find the fragrance too heavy. You can use a bowl-full of water and decorate it with roses, jasmines, marigold and other short-stemmed flowers. You can also light up this bowl with floating candles. Roses, tulips, carnations, daisies, marigold, cockscomb, sunflowers, motia, gardenias, tuberoses, canna and lilies will give your guests a good company.
Bedroom is the place where you unwind. Choose flowers that are used in aromatherapy. Remember, the sight and smell of the flower must appeal you. Choose flowers with soothing colours such as light yellow, pink or lavender. You can go for various mild aromatic plants such as chamomile, lavender, or mogra. Red roses can give a romantic touch to your bedroom. Replace the flowers every day and keep your room well-ventilated.
The sight of a pink orchid in your bathroom will definitely make your day start on a beautiful note. The best place to keep this is on the countertop, by the mirror. It can also be positioned near the sink or the bathtub. Orchids are available in different colours such as yellow, white and pink. A white orchid will definitely brighten up your restroom.
