Designing with Topiaries: Silk or Real
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. Remember there are many topiary sizes, shapes, and styles that you can choose from. The taller, rounder look works well in the workplace. We also recommend that you choose a silk topiary. This way you will not have to worry about water, bugs, or plan food. Another place where the benefits of silk plants will be helpful is your church. You can find silk topiaries small enough to adorn your desk and large enough to fill a large area of a room. Be creative in your choice of topiaries and what you use to decorate with them!
The tulip is a big favorite among the categories of silk flowers. A tulip is easily recognized by its petals and design. Tulips can meet a variety of home decor needs. For one, tulips are more of a generic flower that can be used regardless of the season, unlike some of their counterparts. For example, roses are more commonly known as a romantic, Valentines, or Mother’s Day flower. Many plants or flower arrangements are so ?busy? or intricate that they need a good amount of empty space around them to look good. Tulips, however, are elegantly simple and do not need such accommodations to look attractive. Tulips arrangement placement within a home can be very flexible as they work very well as backgrounds for more elaborate flowers, or can stand alone if desired.
Interior Decorating Notebooks
Those who love interior design are always ready to try something new. However, as we all know, life happens: projects get pushed to the side for one reason or another. Fortunately, that does not mean there is nothing you can do to get ready. One of the best tips available is to keep a notebook handy. This way, if you have a great idea but you are at work, watching the kids, or doing other things that you just cannot break away from, just write it down. Also, jot down any information you need to obtain or problems that need to be fixed. Sometimes, you may find that between the time you write your ideas down and the time you begin to implement them, your mind has been working on strategies in the background.
