Accessorizing with flowers, plants or fresh fruit are an effective way to bring warmth and life into your home. After we finish accessorizing with different objects, we then go back and layer the rooms with plants. We suggest that you select a nice container or pot from your local nursery, as this will enhance the look of your plants.
We also love to incorporate fresh cut flowers.
If you like fresh cut flowers, but are looking for something that lasts longer, try one of these alternatives.
Orchids may cost more initially, but they typically last 4-6 weeks and can therefore end up being less expensive than your weekly fresh cut flowers.
We also love the use of succulents, as we have talked about previously on our blog. They are low-maintenance, can be used indoors or out, and add a tremendous amount of interest.
You can also try filling a container or bowl with fresh fruit such as kumquats, clementines or lemons. Choose what's in season. Fruit is a fun alternative, as it will also lend a fresh pop of color to a room.
