Using Floral Tapestries To Decorate Your Home

Since the beginning of history, flowers have been used to add beauty to our surroundings and to express our feelings. Perhaps no other work of nature is so wondrous and so valued.

Artists of course, have also been drawn to flowers for centuries. It is one of the most popular and enduring still life subjects known. From floral baskets overflowing with precious and often exotic blooms to expansive ‘verdures’ capturing a wooded scenic in highly detailed splendor, floral tapestries continue to be one of the most popular choices for homeowners wanting to add a splash of color to their home.

Floral art tapestries can enhance a particular space, add a touch of romance to a bedroom, and can be used with other art works in any home. Here are the 3 top ways you can use floral tapestries to enrich any home:

1. Add visual interest with floral tapestries.

As with a large spray or bouquet of fresh flowers, they can create visual interest in any room in your home, whether it’s an architectural element, a landing on a stairwell or a dining room wall.

Finely woven flower tapestries have a real presence to them and they will become a focal point in the room they are hung in. Since there are dozens of beautiful works to select from, you can find something that not only fits your decor and color scheme, but your tastes in flowers as well.

2. Create romance in the bedroom.

Many homeowners want their bedrooms to be a very special place, a retreat from the stresses from the daily life. Floral tapestries can create a sense of peace in the room, adding a natural and organic element that is both colorful and always fresh. Some of these floral tapestries can look so real you’ll swear you can smell their scent.

In fact, you can choose a larger floral tapestry as the focal point and add smaller floral works on the other walls to enhance the theme, filling the whole room with flowers.

3. As a great addition to your other pieces of art.

One of the great things about floral tapestries is that they blend seamlessly with your other works, whether you like still lifes, landscapes or even fresh bouquets of real flowers. The floral patterns echo one another throughout the decor, creating a room that is inviting and filled with the natural beauty only Mother Nature can create.

4. Verdures offer a great alternative or complement.

In contrast to floral tapestries, ‘verdures’ offer you a highly detailed design of flowers, leaves and forests that will create contrast and vitality to your living space. Many of these verdures also include elements of landscape, so you can create visual bridge between the floral tapestries and other non-floral works in your home, as well as being a scenic nature piece all their own.

As you can see, floral tapestries can give your home a whole new look that is fresh and elegant. You can mix and match these tapestries with other elements in your home, including large pots, live flowers, small trees and other floral decor. Whether you live in the country or in a New York high rise, floral tapestries are a unique and elegant way to bring the beauty of the outdoors indoors.
