Lovely flowers in any interior, it really does add to a whole new feel to any room.  Often I feel the effect and usage of flowers in interior design gets overlooked, and when used, not enough credit is given.  Research has shown and proven that having flowers in our indoor environment is good for our mental well-being.  Can you imagine, if it brightens up patients in hospitals how good it will be for you in your home or work environment!


Think of it this way:

Seeing flowers in an interior not only looks beautiful but also enhances the overall interior – kind of like the cherry on the chocolate cake.  Remember to ditch the fake flowers, and shop local and fresh only!


Flowers definitely have an effect on our emotions; a beautiful setting of flowers is sure to get us in a good and vibrant mood.


I love waking up in the morning and seeing fresh flowers – My good energetic mood is set for the day! When shopping for your next fresh bunch, keep this in mind:

1. Softer colors will be more relaxing

2. Bold and bright colors will be more energising


Smelling flowers will put you in a good mood as well as make you feel more relaxed and less anxious in any environment.


Having fresh flowers and plants in a working or study environment will get your brain senses revving.  They will freshen up the air helping you to brainstorm effectively; get the creative juices flowing and will aid in a fresher focus.


Fact is flowers and plants in interiors have a positive psychological effect on us – this is your mental health treatment!
