PRES home stagers and redesigners use a lot of florals as one of their key accessories to adding the final touch to a home for selling, or for living. Florals come in so many shapes, sizes, styles, textures, etc. that it’s good to have a variety and mix them up. Large green leaves, tall twigs, grasses (brown or green) and colourful silk flowers add beauty to any home. Most can be cleaned with a damp microfibre cloth, some can go in the bathtub and be gently swished around or you can air spray them. Keep them looking clean because when the dust collects it’s bad ‘chi’ in the air!
If you happen to live in an area where there is a Home Sense, Walmart, Costco or Target you will find a variety of florals to choose from. It just takes a good eye to see what will work and what won’t but most stores will have lots to choose from in the spring and fall seasons.
In my opinion Michaels (craft store) has the best silk flowers and plants, although I suggest buying there when they have a sale on as they are more expensive than other stores.
For good decorating/design work with florals in odd numbers of arrangements.Florals can be one of the areas where you work in your accent colour very nicely.
