Painters love combining primary colours in order to make secondary ones – at the exact shade they want. But when it comes to flowers, there are no other plants to mix them with in order to generate new colours. However, there are plenty of options for you to combine plants and flowers with each other and with your furniture, in order to create a smooth vision of calmness, elegance and order.
If the Soil is Picasso then flowers are paintings, for they truly are nature’s own creations. To love your home entails choosing the right interior design to give it character – but no interior design is complete without a memorable floral arrangement – a natural “painting”. And that’s what TBR Design Studio is here for; to help you create a zen-ful experience at your personal space with a few basic tips.
Little things, great sights.
Pay attention to the littlest things, such as vases and pots. For instance, If you have a Shabby chic décor, then choosing brighter colours would be the best option. Make sure each pot or vase matches the rest of your interior. Go for light pink, blue and white pots and let each room’s furniture ‘tell’ a story.
For an airy look choose ivory avalanche or memory lane roses with carnations and daisies. Scented bouvardia and peach blossoms are always a great addition. To make a good contrast add raspberry orchids in a light green pot (ask TBR for advice on where to purchase the right pots).

Location, Location, Location!
There are some places in your house that you could always place flowers. Add them on fireplaces or next to a pile of books on a coffee table (whose covers match the pot, i.e. a black pot next to (or on top of) leather-bound books). For short furniture use single tall and thin flowers without over-doing it. Try to keep flowers close to (but away from direct) sunlight, to prevent wilting
Art of colour combination
In hotter countries, most room walls are white (i.e. Santorini). You’ll see this almost throughout the Mediterranean, where yellow flowers take over the interior and bring the summer further inside their house (but without the heat). Flowers are extensions of nature; with the right background and colour selection, they seem to bring the outdoors, inside. Sunflowers and chrysanthemums are great selections for white rooms. If you need some contrast add lithodoras and lilacs or any pink-coloured flower.
White rooms are easy to decorate; either with white furniture or much darker ones. An idea of a beautifully composed white room would be predominantly white with dark wood floors and black furniture, green cushions (that match your plants) and yellow, pink or blue flowers.
Darker rooms can be more masculine. Add white flowers such as roses, ranunculi or magnolias on dark surfaces and next to dark-themed wallpapers. For a relaxing atmosphere, create an arrangement of short white flowers in glass pots and place them next to lit candles in frosted glass.
