Flowers can not only liven up your mood, it can liven up the space inside your home as well. By adding some sustainable flowers to your home decor you can create a unique and innovative look for your home and fetch loads of compliments from your guests this holiday season.

Various studies have shown that adding flowers to the interior decor can have positive effects on your mental and physical health. Therefore, having flowers inside your home can create an uplifting environment, while adding a dash of ‘green’ to your living space.

But before you go out to buy a bunch of colourful flowers you must understand that not all flowers are grown sustainably. In fact, flowers are often grown using chemical fertilizers and pesticides that harm the environment in many ways. Such flowers can also pose a threat to your health over a long period of exposure to them. Therefore, if you include flowers in your home decor on a regular basis, it’s best to look for locally grown flowers that are cultivated naturally and sustainably. For instance Melbourne flower delivery from Flowers for Everyone always ensures the clients get sustainable flowers. Look for similar florists in your state or town and get started with decorating your home. Here are some quick tips that will help you decorate your home with sustainable flowers:

Monochromatic Beauty

Choose flowers of different kind but of the same colour and arrange them in unique ways. For example you can choose red gerberas, red roses and other red flowers, make a bunch and place it in your living room or bedroom. It would be better if you choose a colour that complements the colour scheme inside your home.

Think Out-of-the-Box

Forget traditional flowers vases, think out-of-the-box instead. Collect mason jars, old perfume bottles, reclaimed watering cans, etc. and turn them into elegant flower holders. Paint them or tie ribbons round the neck or stick colourful papers to make them look appealing and fill them with colourful sustainable flowers. Visit the local florist and pick as many colourful flowers as you can. If you use watering cans, hang them from the ceiling to create a unique look.
