Silk flower arrangements are a great way to add some color or that perfect touch to a room in need of some class. Amazingly detailed and realistic, today’s silk flower arrangements are a great option for your home decorating needs. In this article series we’ll discuss the important elements to think about when selecting the perfect arrangement.
First you’ll need to consider the room in which you want to put them. Ask yourself some basic questions. What areas of the room need enhancement? Is there a theme or an expression that needs to be enhanced or complimented? What colors are there that need I need to keep in mind when selecting my silk arrangements?
With answers to your first questions in hand, the next thing to consider is the lighting. Is it adequate? Is there any natural light that can be taken advantage of to accentuate the silk floral arrangements? (Natural light always enhances silk arrangements so it’s best to use it whenever possible) If you are in the dining room and are considering selecting your silk arrangements for the dining room table, be sure to choose an arrangement or centerpiece that’s not too long or wide because the affect may be that it disturbs your table environment and is a distraction at dinner time.
Next consider the season your silk floral arrangements will express. Choose your silk arrangements carefully for each season so that they enhance your environment rather than clashing with it. Use bright or warm colors for spring and summer and autumn hues for fall. Red’s work well in winter especially around Christmas time. Keep in mind that most real flowers and plants have a certain look when they’re in season but a different look when they’re not. Buds will be closed for some plants in early spring but will be just about to open in late spring. By summer the flowers will be vibrant but by late summer they will begin to wilt a little and some will begin to fall off.
Now, with the season, lighting, room colors and context in mind, it’s time to shop for the perfect silk flower arrangements for your needs.
Once you’ve found the perfect silk flower arrangements it’s time to decide what container, bowl or stand you want to display your silk flower arrangements in. The best retailers sell their silk floral arrangements with beautiful containers. But if you find the perfect silk arrangement but not in the perfect container then consider something pre-made in ceramic or glass. Choose an item that will blend with your room and your flowers. Also, remember the design elements you are looking for.
