How to Add Life to Your Home with Flowers


Okay, do you care for real or faux flowers more or does it matter because you love them both? Let me know in the comments below.

Now, I’ve mostly had faux flowers in my house, as you can tell by the photo above but I wouldn’t mind having real flowers as well. Honestly to me, it doesn’t matter but I’m telling you now, they will only last up to two weeks with me. So that tells you, I don’t have a green thumb but I love having them around.

Flowers bring a “Zen” touch to your home. It makes the atmosphere more tranquil and I believe it’s because of the subtle aroma from the petals. After doing some research, I found that flowers trigger dopamine which lets us know that something special is coming. I can understand that because flowers will let us know when the season is changing. Some flowers won’t grow at certain times of the year, just like certain fruits. See, they’re all connected.

I love being able to go to the store and pick fresh flowers, bring them home and arrange them in the vase and put them out on display. Flowers bring a freshness to your home. It brings the space to life. It does this by providing color where everything may be too bland. You don’t ever want to have too much of one color in a home and not break it up with colors, textures, and designs. You always want your space to look as though someone lives there because...well someone does...I hope.

If you’re not into real flowers, you don’t have to be. There are plenty of stores you can go to and purchase faux flowers. It will do the same to a space especially if that’s all you’re trying to do is add a little color.

I’d also like to add that it helps with sprucing up your decor. You know, if you’re more of a neutral person, a touch of greenery would fit right in. You don’t have to worry about having flowers that are all sorts of colors but choosing/building a bouquet that fits the aesthetic of your home is just fine. As you can tell, I gravitate towards white flowers for my farmhouse aesthetic.
