Bedroom/Living Room Apartment Decorating Using Green Flowers/Plants
Green and Flowers
In this article we take a look at the different possibilities posters and prints of green nature present home decorators with. In discussions on yellow and blue flowers we explored in-depth how wall art with flowers, though lacking in third dimension and scent, can turn out to be a more effective decorative tool. Possibly the most evident benefit lies in the fact that images of flowers, unlike real blooms, will never fade; they remain perennially green, don't need watering or mineral supplements, and can be moved or replaced.
Green, indeed, is the most common color in flora, appearing in all flowers and plants either in the form of stems, leaves, or other botanical parts. It's generalist quality makes it a perfect neutral hue that will instill – especially when combined with whites – a sense of calm that is especially sought for by some home owners and makers.
Creating atmosphere and diffusing tensions, green a perfect backdrop tone. As opposed to the attention seeking red, yellow, or pink flowers, where each bloom can it itself become the theme of a painter or photographer, green acts as a single wide carpet.
Red flowers on green grass seem less aggressive, blue flowers appear less vulnerable. Grass completes and supports the botanical growth above it – something no florist or ikebana specialist will ever manage to do even in the most sophisticated bouquet or centerpiece. While some still life painters prefer to portray their subjects out of their green context, many, impressionists in particular, painted from nature, and caught the green in its luscious splendor.
Forests bring out the meditative quality of green. Flowers rarely grow inside forests – there isn't enough light and pollinating insects – so sun itself, when sifted by the top branches, becomes the source of color. Depending on the kind of forest, the color can display dark, almost black shades, or very light, yellowish ones.
