Floristry cannot be viewed in isolation from the aesthetic of the rest of the house and must be considered alongside the home’s interior styling. Kasia explains nostalgia, heritage and cultural aspects all play into clients’ styles and lead their choices when choosing plants and flowers for the home and garden.
To create a cohesive flower or plant feel, Gloria Studio recommends thinking locationally within the home and incorporating greenery relating to your climate; avoid anything too tropical in cooler temperatures. “Working with a florist is a great way to ensure you match the right plants with the correct location in the home”, suggests Kasia, as it helps you make the most out of them, ensuring vibrancy and longevity.
It is essential to consider several factors when dressing your home, advises Kasia. The heat in a room, the location of the windows and the direction of the light all play a crucial role in whether or not the plants and flowers you have will thrive. Ensure you provide the plants in your home with the right amount of direct or indirect sunlight.
What works in one home may not be suitable for another, so according to Kasia, readers need to “find the balance between the longevity of the materials they’ve chosen and the individual’s desired aesthetic”. Adopt a playful approach to creating a cohesive feel in your home, says Amaia. Experiment with various flowers and “play with texture and tone for a vibrant feel”.
