Blooms for Every Room

Blaire Benson

If you haven’t seen this month’s Gentry HOME Magazine, get your hands on a copy now because we are thrilled to be featured in a three-page article called ‘A Bloom for Every Room.’ Check it out here (on pages 46, 48 and 50) or keep reading to find out what arrangements to feature in each room of your home this spring!

Dining Room

Utilizing containers from the home is an easy way to create a no-fuss landscape arrangement for your dining table that is sure to mesmerize dinner guests. Short enough to have a conversation over, our 3-in-1 container arrangement won’t take away from the cuisine or company. Pantone’s color of the year, greenery, keeps this piece on-trend. Add white daisies to this sleek and modern design for a touch of whimsy. Incorporate trending poppy and lotus pods with common succulents to refine and frame the piece.

Bedroom

A compact arrangement is versatile and appealing to the eye at any angle. Romantic cream roses and blues provide a calming palate for a bedside table. Pair with in-style blue and white pottery for a more classic look. Flowers with symmetrical sizing work better in this arrangement, as they blend together in a floral mass. Small pops of orange add a bright and playful aesthetic to the arrangement. Drape amaranth for a whimsical and visually dynamic piece.

Living Area

As there’s no wrong way in art, the same is true for arranging a contemporary Flemish. Incorporating an heirloom urn or container adds a personal touch, and a variety of flowers and textures create a stunning focal point for an entryway or mantle piece. Use two-tone flowers to draw the eye in, a pop of forsythia for dramatic branching and curly willow when outwardly draping. Historically, these pieces emphasize rich hues and natural accessories, reflecting complimentary art in the home.

Kitchen

Adding clusters of blooms and foliage to an arrangement is popular this spring and provides a perfect accent for your kitchen, often the gathering room of a home. Balance colors across the arrangement with varying textures in odd numbers to keeping it unique and compelling. Think outside the box when adding edibles and keep in mind seasonality. Beets, figs and artichokes bring a fun and unexpected element to the arrangement, yet make perfect sense in a kitchen bouquet.

Bathroom

Use humidity-lover, tillandsia, for a foolproof bathroom arrangement. Clean and modern meets nature with tall glass vases customized with rocks or moss balls. Varying length and texture of the tillandsia foliage adds sequencing height. Long-lasting and low-maintenance, greenery never goes out of style.
