If you work in a home office, it can quickly become depressing looking at the same 4 dull walls every day. A sad and static work environment can become literally draining. It is worth taking a little time every week to clean up your work space and make it feel special.
For many of us fresh flowers work a charm. They can inject colour, life and a sense of serenity into any space and help brighten your mood while you work.
So if you’re looking for some inspiration, here are five ways to decorate your home office with fresh flowers.
1. Add a Vase of Fresh-Cut Blooms on Your Desk
It’s hard to focus when you need to be productive, and the only thing in your line of sight is a pile of papers. To make your work area more inviting, place a vase of fresh-cut blooms on your desk. Not only will you enjoy looking at the beautiful flowers, but if they are scented, the fragrance will also help to boost your mood and improve your concentration. Fresh blooms will add a pop of colour to your desk and make the space feel more inviting.
There are lots of farm-fresh flowers for sale that you can get started with.
- If you’re looking for a low-maintenance, colourful addition to your work area, try growing some lavender or sunflowers
- If you want nice-smelling flowers that will also add a touch of elegance to your office, try roses or lilies
- If you want small, colourful flowers that will brighten up your desk, try violets or pansies
Whichever flowers you choose, make sure to keep them in a vase with fresh water and change the water every few days. Ensure your flowers are getting some natural light, but avoid placing them in direct sunlight, as this can damage the blooms.
2. Place a Colourful and Striking Flower Arrangement in the Corner
To add a touch of colour and life to your home office, consider placing a colourful flower arrangement in one corner of your small office. Not only will it brighten up the room, it will also give you something pretty to look at when you need some inspiration. Flower arrangements are especially nice because they come in all shapes and sizes, so you can find one that perfectly suits your office’s aesthetic.
Choose flowers that match your interior decorating style, whether you prefer subdued tones or bold colours. Placing the flowers on a side table makes it easy for you to admire them when sitting at the computer and is also helpful because they are distracting enough for you to step away from what you’re doing and give them some attention now and then. This gives your mind a break from work and helps inspire your productivity.
3. Hang Flowers on the Wall Behind Your Desk
If you spend a lot of time on video calls or meetings, think about having a floral back drop. It will make everyone smile when they see you and help your meetings to run smoothly. It also makes you memorable and gives those talking to you a sense that you are fresh and likeable.
Whether you work with your back against the wall or while facing the wall, you will also be giving yourself a lovely view. Try putting yourself in your favorite spot, and picture how it would feel to have flowers there.
If you don’t want a permanent arrangement on the wall, try using portable flower stands or hanging string lights with potted plants inside of them. You will want to use an assortment of different types and colours in order to create interest and depth within your flower wall arrangement.
4. Accent Floor Space With Flowers in Interesting Containers
Consider using unusual but interesting containers to hold your flowers. This could be glass bottles, vases with interesting designs, or even an antique teapot turned into a flower holder. Place these contains at strategic points on your floor space like a corner or by your desk to add a splash of colour and interest. You can also place one at the entrance to your home office to greet guests.
Minimalism is key when it comes to decorating with flowers, especially when you have a small space, so don’t overdo it. Flowers are great for creating a relaxed and cozy working atmosphere, and their beauty can be enjoyed daily. Floor space provides a creative opportunity to place your flowers or other items in a way that works for you.
5. Create a Floral Display on a Hanging Wall Shelf
Wall shelves are a great way to add storage and display space to your home office. A hanging wall shelf is perfect for displaying a floral arrangement, especially if you have a limited amount of floor space. Choose a shelf that is large enough to accommodate your arrangement, and select a variety of flowers in different colors and sizes. Choose a beautiful vase or bowl and fill it with fresh flowers. You can also add some greenery to the arrangement for extra colour and texture.
Hanging wall shelves can be found in a variety of unique designs, allowing you to arrange various types of flowers in different ways while easily transforming your interior decor. Small flowers like carnations and daisies can be clustered together in a single vase, while larger flowers like roses can be grouped together in separate vases. Floral displays are a perfect way to transform your home office and add a touch of nature to the room.
Refresh the Look and Feel of Your Home Office
Having fresh flowers in your home office is a great way to brighten up what might otherwise feel like a drab space. If you have only been using white walls for decoration, consider adding some colour with bright and fresh flower arrangements in one corner of the room, flower vases on your desk, floral displays on the wall, or a pot of fresh flowers on your windowsill or floor.
If you’re looking for a more permanent way to add some colour and life to your home office, consider using silk flowers instead. You can find many different types of artificial flowers that look very realistic and can really brighten up the space. For fresh flowers, understand how to take care of them and make sure to change the water regularly to keep them looking their best. Go ahead and add some life to your home office with beautiful flowers.
