Flowers are often used in celebrations like wedding, birthday parties, family gatherings, funerals and many more. They are usually presented in a glamourous and bizarre way to attract the eyes of people. Flowers are seen in households as well. Almost every home has flower decorations.

If you are planning on creating flower designs for your room then you are definitely on the right page. Listed below are the six creative ways to decorate your room with flowers.
1. Adjust To The Room
Ask yourself: What is the style of my room? How will I complement my flower decorations with the way my room was presented? You need to have an action plan. If your room is styled in a minimalist way, then you should pick bright or dark colored flowers. If your room is made of old-school wood, go for white colored flowers. Here’s the tip: Your flower arrangement should blend in with the style of your humble room.
2. Consider Color Combinations
Do your research regarding combining flowers. There are some mix of colors that are not appealing to the eyes. Make sure that the proper combination is followed. See the list below for reference.
- Secondary Colors – includes the colors Purple, Green and Orange.
- Tertiary Colors – where primary and secondary colors are combined.
- Monochromatic – you can use a single color with different tones and shades.
3. Avoid Colored Vases
Colored vases will do no good for your flower decorations. Sure it is striking in the eyes but the main purpose on why you should avoid using colored vases is for the colored flowers to stand out.
