Just because it is cold and icy outside does not mean you cannot have the small comforts of spring, like flower arrangements, brighten up your bedroom. Arranging flowers in your bedroom this winter will not only do wonders for livening up the space but it will also provide a serene boost of comfort.
Whether you want to incorporate wintry or warm colors in your flower arrangement, there are plenty of color options for you to play with. If you want to mirror the snow and crisp winter landscape outside, try a full bouquet of baby's breath mixed with other small, cool-toned flowers such as the royal blue Asiatic dayflower. If you are looking more towards spring, implement bedroom bouquets with warm pink, magenta and peachy tones. Light pink carnations and yellow roses are both warm and serene, while purple mums and peach lilies will pick up your winter blues in a heartbeat.
The holiday spirit is never gone in winter, and taking inspirations anywhere from Christmas to Valentine's Day are equally likely to give your bedroom that extra pop of style as well as that nice, homey feeling. If the pre- New Year's holidays are more your thing, arrange bold red and golden roses in a glass vase with other similarly-colored flowers and wrap it all up with a thick, gift-ready bow. And don't forget your sprigs of holly! If you are struck by the bare branches on the trees outside, try adding branches and dried flowers into your arrangements for a truly vintage look. For a winter arrangement that is entirely branch-inspired, put together flowers like forsythia and bridal wreath in a tall, glass vase.
The type of vase or container in which you put your winter flower arrangement is a crucial in its overall appearance. To emphasize the height of taller flowers and branches, implement a tall glass vase -- either cylindrical or rectangular. Don't be afraid to play around with different ideas! Tying a ribbon around the vase and placing glass or colored stones at the bottom can create a whole new look. If the flower you choose is shorter, or even if you just take a lily or rose and cut it about an inch below the bulb, take this creative idea from Martha Stewart herself and place it in a beautiful tea-cup or otherwise ornamented cup.
