How better to bring the freshness of spring into your home than with flowers! When it comes to creating flower arrangements, I definitely lean towards ones that are contemporary, clean and architectural. In my own home, I enjoy displaying single flowers in multiple bud vases or using small, tight bouquets with one type of flower. When using a single flower type or color in a dramatic way, the arrangement has a unique impact.
Here are my five favorites spring (or anytime!) flowers:
1. Calla Lilly
As I’ve mentioned several times in previous blog posts, my absolute favorite flower is the calla lily. I love its sculptural quality and simple beauty.
I often will use one or two calla lilies arranged in multiple bud vases. Here’s a photo of a master bathroom project that I did where I used this arrangement.
These hydrangeas are actually silk flowers by Diane James. Her arrangements are a “secret source” for many designers. Honestly, it is nearly impossible to tell that these are faux. Real or silk, I love them!
3. Gerber Daisies
What could be more joyful than a bunch of colorful gerber daisies? These are perfect to perk up a dreary work space or bring to a friend in need of some cheer. Again, I love how these are arranged in same-color bunches!
Tulips are the perfect spring bloom and are available in many colors. While they can be easily arranged freely in a vase, I do favor the more controlled bouquet shown here.
Simplicity and elegance – Is there anything more beautiful than a white orchid?
