Believe it or not, there are some kinds of flowers that blossom in the cooler months. Whether or not they would endure the polar vortex and arctic chill going on now across the world is doubtful of course. None the less there is a way, once the thaw melts, to have gorgeous blossoming plants before spring has sprung.
Snapdragons are some of winter’s favourite blossoms. Aside from being tremendously fun to play with, Snapdragons mix oranges, pinks and pops of yellow impeccably. Integrating these hues into home decor gives you a feminine and intrepid look that embraces colour from ceiling to floor and can easily transform into any room in your house.
Whether you take stimulus and make it a pivotal point with paint or large drapes, or keep to accessories with accent lamps and throw pillows, this spring-inspired colour palette will surely give you incentive to see the sunshine at the end of the wintry shaft.

Violas are kind of flowers that would blossom in cooler months. The deep purples and silver whites communicate with the chill of winter season and decode into interior design that is contemporary, lustrous and mature. Another accessory that pairs flawlessly with deep mauves and silvery surfaces is crystal lighting. Just like the glass accent pieces, crystal lighting will replicate the colours rather than undermine and distract from them.

Nemesia has a vivacious auburn flower with a dark black centre - a colour combination that we often notice in interior decor inspirations. Orange really is the star colour of Nemesia, and we have found inspiration that embraces the orange and lets it illuminate. Almost like winter dusk, the warmth and rich hue feel reassuring in the winter months. Both solid and patterned, in textiles and wallpaper, accessories and accents, this bold colour has no intention of going anywhere soon.

Narcissus floras, also known as ‘paper whites’, are tiny but absolutely amiable. This ingenious urn makes bulb forcing easier than ever, thanks to a base that gives them the room for their roots to grow, and robust sides that avert stems from slumping over.

Floral concepts are a therapeutic way to combat away the winter blues when you are trapped indoors. If you cannot get your hands on fresh flowers, consider making decorative floral arrangements with paper flowers, plastic or silk flowers. A little colour can go a long way!
