» Preparing Roses for Winter
More and more, homeowners are creating true oasis in their very own yards. Gardens that were once just flowers and plants are now beautiful with benches, trellises, arbors, birdbaths, hanging globes, and garden critters that add a touch of whimsy to the garden.
This same enchantment is something that is now trying to be captured inside the home and with the options available today, with great success. For instance, when it comes to wallpaper, there are floral designs so real you would swear you were looking out into your garden.
Some of these floral prints are designed with gorgeous coordinating patterns and borders that complete the look. For example, if you want to bring the garden theme to your bedroom, you can choose bright and cheery wallpaper with a matching border and then choose a comforter with coordinating pillows, duvet, window treatments, and rugs.
If you want the garden décor in your dining room, in addition to floral wallpaper, you can also choose coordinating pieces that include chair pads, dinnerware, table linens, and so on. For a living room, there are matching pillows, slipcovers, and throws. With the new garden décor, it is not one-dimensional but a multi-dimensional design.
Some amazing looks that you will find include:
These and other garden décor designs bring a sense of cheer and relaxation to a room. Some of the designs are invigorating while others are calming. During the cold winter months, rather than look at something drab and lifeless, you can enjoy the room you have decorated and feel as though you are sitting outdoors in a park or garden on a warm spring day. To choose the right garden décor, consider the following tips:
- Tulips that are designed against a green and plaid background
- Variety of flowers that are pressed against your choice of a small or large green damask or plaid background
- Tea stained rose floral design that features a red and cream strip along with a tan and cream miniature check pattern
- A combination of green, yellow, and red flowers that are laid against a large floral plaid and miniature plaid
- Find floral patterns that coordinate with existing colors in your home. For instance, if you have dark blue carpeting, look for green leaves that have mauve or yellow flowers. If your carpeting were neutral, any of the tea stained designs would be perfect.
- If you choose floral designs that are bold, then try to keep some of the surface areas such as the walls, sheets, curtains, and floors simple. On the other hand, if you use floral designs that have plain or light backgrounds, then you can be a little more creative with the accessories.
- Base your secondary and accent colors on the primary floral color or pattern
- Make sure the secondary color is a low to mid-tone and use this for accent pillows, bed skirts, and trim.
- If you choose a third color, you can go with a more vibrant color such as deep blue or red. This same color should then be captured in smaller accessories such as curtain tiebacks, chair pads, vases, and so on.
