Minimalistic flowers

Frilly and dainty, flowers somehow breathe romantic vibes, but they can do so much more! Even though florals and bouquets don’t immediately make you think of graphic design and minimalism, it is possible to create strong and modern statements with nature. Just be bold and make your flowers speak with form and colour. Let’s go!

Art and Flowers

Some flowers don’t need a bouquet. Some are strong enough to hold their own, maybe even without a vase! Or just pick out a minimalistic vase and one or two bold flowers. You can combine these with paper in similar colours, which you place in a vase. Or what about attaching your flowers and the paper to a wall? It will look amazing, like you created your own art.

Interior Design

And what about the rest of your styling? If you like these kind of flower arrangements, the rest of your interior probably is understated as well.  So why not arrange 2 or 3 of your favourite flowers in different vases and arrange them together or apart in your living room? This is a sort of decomposed bouquet so to speak, and highlights the clean feel of modern homes.

Flowers in shapes

Have you ever seen those rings in hobby shops? They make perfect little helpers to create modern arrangements. You can fold flowers around the circle, or hang one in the middle to to emphasize it.

Trend colours for flowers

To know if you are on point with your trend colours this year, it is wise to follow the Pantone guide trend report. This year it is the trend colour is ‘Greenery’, pantone 15-0343, which is good news because we like green! Pair this with Pink yarrow, pantone 17-2034 and Pale dogwood, pantone 13-1404 and you have an amazing and hip bouquet.

Go even further

If you want to take the design of your flowers even one step further, freeze them in water and lets them melt in a vase. Almost like performance art!

Alstroemeria

The Alstroemeria or Inca lily is a perfect flower for February. In this month where we have a special day to celebrate love in all its forms, this ‘friendship’ flower is what we need! In the store this flower may come across as a little bit shy, but once she is home, she will show her true beauty. And the colours, amazing! Red, purple, pink, orange, white and yellow, you name it and this beauty has it.

Symbolism

The Alstroemeria is the perfect gift to celebrate friendship, because the six petals stand for the good character traits we look for in friendship. Humour, compassion, patience, empathy, spirit and respect.

Go high

Because these flowers are so high and bloom a lot at the top, you can create amazing layered bouquets. Why not create very distinct layers with these flowers on top and some roses around the stems? You need some wire and a high sturdy vase, and there you go. In the end this will look.

How to care for Alstroemeria

As you normally do with flowers, cut the stems a bit diagonally and remove the lower leaves as to not cover them in water. Use a clean vase and clean water, and don’t put the vase in direct sunlight. Top up with new water regularly, and you are sure to enjoy these colourful gems for a long time!

Find your friends

As these flowers symbolize friendship, they shouldn’t be alone in a flower arrangement. Put them together with for instance tulips (also a flower readily available this period) or real lilies for an explosion of colour and stripes.
