Is there anything more timelessly beautiful than dry flowers? We don’t think so. When put together right, they serve as a tasteful addition to any space. And as we spend more time at home, it may not be viable to decorate with fresh blooms all the time.
Since we’re coveting dry flowers so much, especially after they’ve been frequenting campaigns and runways of some of our favorite brands in recent times, including NET-A-PORTER, we thought we’d share a few tips on how to make your homes fragrant and fabulous with these beautiful decoratives.
The longevity of dried flowers makes them the perfect fit for both your workspace and home. Pick out a gorgeous vase (we’re thinking about Baccarat crystal) and handpick each fern and thistle. Use stems of varying heights to create volume and depth. Take a cue from Emirati influencer Nouf Al Tamimi, who can be viewed here creating an elegant, all-white bouquet, one that’s sure to add whimsy to any space.
Terrariums can make your home look effortlessly elegant and they also make for a great DIY project. Pick a few of your favorite varieties of dry flowers in different colors and fleck them in your terrarium. Imagine a glass house with contrasting tones of maroon and beige peeking through the green. Gorgeous.
As complex as it looks, it only takes a few minutes to create these stunning ornaments. You only need some foam, wire and, of course, your favorite selection of dried flowers. Get the kids involved and the resulting wreaths will be totally worth the time and effort.
If you’ve been looking to make your wall hangings more interesting, try press-framing your favorite selection of dried flowers. Opt for petite dried flowers, or bigger blooms like sunflowers and roses to add a hint of color to your room.
