And Can Make A Room.
I regularly review interior design magazines and books to inspire my work, as I’m certain many of you do. On your next review, you will find as I did, virtually every photographed room includes flowers. You will see also larger plantings and trees.
Flowers have a remarkable way of bringing life to a room. Interior designers have the responsibility of making the critical selections that will (in many cases) communicate the emotion of the room on behalf of their clients. Preston Bailey, an author of six books who is well known for developing flower arrangements to complement events says, “Color and shape are the most influential in determining the impact of flower design”. He communicates that scaling arrangements creates another type of rhythm to an event. He uses tall displays to grab attention and smaller pieces to unfold their charms.
He considers flowers as linked to emotions and sensations. He believes that pinks, fuchsias and lavenders suggest feminine beauty while blues, greens and turquoises evoke harmony. Reds, oranges and bright yellow promise change and festivity, and cream and white convey a sense of elegance.
Back in the Victorian era, certain flowers had specific meanings because flower selection was limited and people used more symbols and gestures to communicate than they used words. Today, flowers communicate in so many different ways and people assign their own personal meanings. For those of you interested in the historic meaning of flowers, see a re-created list of what the Society of American Florists has compiled from a list of a variety of different sources at: HISTORICAL FLOWERS. We have also provided their list of flowers for each state as well the flower that represents each month at link.
