Adding Decorative Topiary Plants
Just as in art, the way things are spaced in interior design is critical to a well-balanced appearance. When you add topiaries to the area you are enhancing, be sure there is enough ?breathing room? for the plants. There are hundreds of styles, shapes, and sizes available when it comes to topiaries. If you plan to place a topiary into your office, we recommend that you choose a tall circular topiary style. Since many people do not have the time or ability to make sure their office plants are well watered and have plenty of natural light, silk topiaries are often the best way to go. These trees can also look good in homes and churches. You can find silk topiaries small enough to adorn your desk and large enough to fill a large area of a room. Many arrangements include some topiary elements within a more standard display.
Customizing Your Flower Designs
A flower arrangement that fits its surroundings is one of the basic goals of flower arranging. The reason for the bouquet should be the overruling factor when considering to design it. For example, when you are designing an arrangement for a funeral, there are some flowers that are natural choices because of their look and meaning, such as tulips and daisies in gentle colors. If the arrangement is meant to be for something fun, like a gift to a neighbor, include some informal and creative elements such as silk grass. If you would like something more traditional or amorous, roses are a natural choice. Always keep the recipient in mind as you design floral arrangements. If you are aware of their favorite or least favorite flowers, colors, and overall styles, incorporate the ones they like best into your design. Remember that practice makes perfect, so keep on trying. It is especially easy if you are using silk flowers, since you can mix and match all you want without damaging the flowers.
Sprucing up Your Work Area
Sometimes, the walls of your office can feel too much like a penitentiary. Blank walls and a glaring computer screen can feel awfully dull and confining. Can you see the creativity being squelched? However, with a few simple steps, you can transform your environment into something much more welcoming and inspiring. Choose a place in your office to add a good-sized tree, such as a Japanese maple, to revitalize your work area. Many offices have put in silk trees because most of their conference rooms or offices do not have natural lighting available. After you have added a couple of trees or bushes, next add a fountain along the wall or in the reception area. It is surprising how much these little things can change the mood of your business and give your work area a more natural uplifting feeling to get you through the day!
