Refresh Your Home for Summer

3 Roses 39.95, WFSR015

A lot of people are afraid of color in their décor, says Kelli Ellis Society of American Florists, so a less scary way of introducing color is with flowers and vases. Flowers can go with any type of decor and generally last as long as your mood, so there are endless opportunities to experiment without making a long-term commitment. They not only enliven a room and bring in the sights and scents of the outdoors, they are perfect for playing up color and color combinations.

Decorating with flowers begins with choosing a container that is in sync with the season and the style of your home. There are so many container options for every type of decor. If your home leans toward country, think about using old decanters, tins or even wooden boxes. For contemporary homes, glass vases with clean lines work best. And for traditional homes, go with urns or ornate vases.

The same principal applies to the flowers themselves. Mixed flowers tend to be more traditional; bunches of flowers lend a homey, just-picked quality to a casual or country home; and monochromatic arrangements ooze modern. The key is to pair flowers with both their containers and the indoor environment in which they will be seen.

When choosing flowers for a particular spot or room, look at complementary colors — those that are on the opposite side of the color wheel. Go ahead and bring your own vase or container to Winfield Flower Shoppe and ask for something special that works with it.
