Maybe you’re thinking about adding a new twist to your home decoration or perhaps you’re looking for new ideas that go beyond the more classic designs and furnishings. If so, read on; we’ll teach you how to use colorful plants and flowers to add a personal touch and fill your rooms with life and vitality.

Many plant species add light, warmth, and energy to any room. You just need to know how to make them fit in with the ambiance of the space.

Why decorate with colorful plants and flowers?

Plants and flowers can fill any interior with life and color. However, depending on the style of furnishing and decoration in your home, some will work well while others might look more out of place.

In this guide, you’ll find some tips to learn how to get the right blend for your color palette. We’ll also give you suggestions for plants that are both beautiful and easy to take care of. Here we go!

Instagram-friendly colors

Interiors made for Instagram.

Social networks are a great barometer of the latest trends. On Instagram, you can check out influencers’ favorite colors and get an idea of what kind of shots they’re taking.

Despite it peaking a few years ago, millennial pink is still one of the most popular colors for modern interiors. And it’s no wonder; it goes with almost everything.

If white predominates in your decor, with details in black and gold, add some soft pink flowers to be the envy of all your guests. We suggest small round vases with English roses or a little pot of peonies. Make sure you know how to take care of them.

Another color interior designers love is lilac in all its tones: lavender, purple, etc. This color is associated with spirituality and mysticism and adds a sense of calm to any environment.

Including flowers or plants with these tones, in attractive pots or vases, can be a beautiful way to add a touch of sophistication to any room.

The African violet, for example, is a classically beautiful plant that’s easy to take care of. They come in both lighter and more intense tones, and a plant pot made of natural fibers will complete the look. Put them on your coffee table or in the hall.

If you want to decorate with bunches, lavender is a must because it’s so appealing and goes with almost any style. You can probably find some in your local garden center or flower shop.

Colorful plants and flowers that complement your decor

Of course, the color palette of your home is very important. If your home is predominantly green, for example, you can use plants that are known to add light, such as monstera deliciosa.

If your home is filled with blues, flowers in violet or bluish tones are wonderful. In addition to those mentioned above, consider petunias or larkspurs to add a touch of color.

For lovers of more elegant and modern environments in golden tones, nothing is more graceful than a plant with orange flowers. As well as kalanchoe, marigolds, and daisies, you could take a chance with the exuberance of a bird of paradise.

Decorating with colorful plants can be an easy way to fill your home with style and vitality. Make sure you take the temperature and climate where you live into account, and that you know how to take care of the plants you choose.
