Easy Floral Arrangements and Home Decor Tips

As the summer sun bathes our homes in warmth, it’s the perfect time to infuse a fresh, vibrant summer styling refresh into our living spaces. In this post, we’ll dive into the art of easy floral arrangements and explore some tips for styling different rooms in your home for the season.

Creating Simple Floral Arrangements

Now, let’s embark on a creative journey in the kitchen, where we’ll craft easy floral arrangements that capture the essence of summer. From chamomile to tulips and ranunculus, we’ll explore the magic of simple yet stunning bouquets.

Chamomile Delight:

Our first stop is the kitchen, where we’ll create a whimsical chamomile arrangement.

Embrace the wild beauty of these flowers by keeping them untamed. You have the easiest and cutest summer arrangement with just a few snips and a fluted base.

Tulip Fun with Floral Frogs:

Moving on to tulips, we’ll use a floral frog for a unique arrangement.

A penny in the water prevents droopiness, and with a few strategic cuts and playful placement, tulips become a statement piece.

Ranunculus Elegance:

Now, let’s explore the grace of white ranunculus. In a vintage vase, arrange the stems to create an abstract and wisp-like quality.

The watery blue ceramic bowl adds a touch of sophistication to the summer palette. I also added a few wispy flowers to some clear double-glass bowls. And there you have it, four simple summer flower arrangements to refresh your home decor.

Styling Your Spaces for Summer

With our floral arrangements in place, let’s transition to styling different areas of your home for the summer season. From the entryway to side tables and open shelves, discover how minimalism and strategic pops of color can transform your space.

Entryway Elegance:

In the entryway, simplicity takes center stage. A bangle vase grounds the scene, live branches add freshness, and alabaster candle holders bring natural beauty.

A little tulip arrangement and a splash of watery blue in a ceramic bowl complete the summer tableau.

Side Table Serenity:

On a side table, embrace minimalism. A stack of white books, a serene alabaster bowl, and a vintage vase with a floral arrangement embody summer elegance. The watery blue hue appears in a handmade ceramic plate, adding character to the ensemble.

Great Room Grace:

In the great room, a curated coffee table vignette sets the stage. A ceramic bowl anchors the arrangement, while a handmade glass oil candle adds a unique touch. The watery blue is subtly introduced through a beautiful blue bowl. The dancing chamomile flowers add a lively touch to complete this styled coffee table.

On the opposite end of the great room, the second coffee table mirrors the elegant styling of the first vignette. Centered around a ceramic white bowl, complemented by delicate wispy flowers, and accented with a vintage plate in hues of blue, to tie into the summer refresh color.

Kitchen Summer Styling

As the heart of the home, the kitchen deserves a summer makeover. Embrace clean lines, over-scale accessories, and a touch of blue to create a functional and artful space.

Island Oasis:

An over-scale vase with Magnolia branches on the kitchen island steals the spotlight. A large bowl hosts a bountiful display of limes, adding a pop of color and freshness. Pro tip: go over-scale with accessories, but keep the quantity minimal for a striking effect.

Open Shelves Refresh:

When it comes to open shelves, a summer restyling involves white ceramics, vintage pieces in watery blue, and everyday essentials. The result is a cohesive and visually appealing display that breathes new life into your kitchen.
