When it comes to decorating your house for the winter season with florals and greens, there are many options. You’ll see dozens of holiday arrangements – we at Conklyn’s Flowers have them in spades – as well as roses by the dozen (never out of style), blooming plants and wreaths. The palette seems to be clear: red and green. There’s an emphasis on rustic texture, and the use of other organic elements in designs (think pine cones and red berries). Flower designs also enjoy a moment of luxury; we embrace lavish displays and abundance in all forms.
But there’s another color scheme available, one inspired by the white, wintry landscape. It adds a relaxed polish to the home, a nice counterpoint to more elaborate holiday designs. It can lighten the mood, too, which is key during a season of short days and long nights. We love our Shoot for the Stars, a striking example of what happens when you mix white with green.
A piece like this offers tons of texture and a lot of visual interest, despite the colorless nature of its central blooms. There’s a unique, almost geometric shape to this piece, an additional quality you wouldn’t necessarily be able to build up with more colorful flowers.
Referencing the austere beauty outside during winter is one way to enjoy the season’s flowers, and a design point of view that we here at Conklyn’s Flowers are really enjoying.
