Staff Writer · Nov 5, 2010

When it comes to spring decorating, spring flowers are the perfect accents as their distinctive, pretty look can be included in many types of decor. Some favorites include tulips, roses, daffodils, orchids and hyacinths.

1. Tulips – A Popular Springtime Choice

You can’t go wrong by adding tulips to your spring decorating scheme. The flowers are an overall spring favorite and can be incorporated into a number of decors including vintage, shabby chic, contemporary, country cottage, colonial, Georgian and Victorian designs. You can even include them in rooms designed in Gothic or Medieval themes. Place the popular flowers in sunny areas of your apartment where they can provide some added cheer. Choose colors such as pink, mauve, yellow, lilac and blue to celebrate the season. Accent traditional decors with throws and pillows patterned with tulips and place the flowers in plain ceramic or glass vases in more modern settings.

2. A Rose Is Perfect Anytime

Roses are another perfect choice to make for enlivening your decor. They are especially delightful in vintage decors where you can complement their presence by including wallpapers with rose patterned prints and throws and pillows that depict the flower. Roses are also blooms that work well in contemporary apartment homes.l Place them in glass vases or mix them with orchids for a striking, bold look. Roses, like tulips, can be incorporated into any decorating scheme. They brighten apartment decors in seasonal spring hues and shades of traditional red, yellow, peach, pink, white and cream.

3. Daffodils – A Cheerful Choice

Daffodils are also good spring flowers to include in your apartment home. Their happy, vibrant yellow shade makes them the perfect flower for a country cottage or shabby chic decor as well as a complementary flower to include in contemporary, retro and vintage designs. Place them in a vase by themselves and their yellow color will spark a light-hearted influence wherever you choose to set them.

4. The Orchid – A Springtime Beauty in any Setting

Orchids are especially nice springtime blooms to include in ultra modern decors. A single white orchid placed in a glass vase often makes a showy statement in a contemporary  or minimalist decor. Including pictures of the flower as well as pillows with large orchid designs also enhance the look. The flower is also a nice addition to include in apartments with vintage or country cottage or English cottage themes, especially when you combine the bloom with springtime favorites such as roses and dahlias.

5. Hyacinths – A Fragrant Definition of Spring

Hyacinths are also spring blossoms that define the season. Whether they’re displayed in a purple or hollyhock pink, they make any area of the home come alive with the message of spring. Combine fragrant, purple hyacinths with yellow tulips and you will not only have a delightfully scented apartment but a beautiful arrangement of springtime blooms. They look exceptionally nice in vintage, country cottage, Victorian and shabby chic decors.

Spring hosts a number of flowers for the purpose of decorating. In addition to the floral selections above, don’t forget to include such springtime blooms as freesias, sweet peas, lilies, amaryllis, anemones, birds of paradise and cherry blossoms too. Enjoy the spring season indoors and out.
