With spring fast approaching, that time of year to spring clean and redecorate is upon us dear reader. Soon flowers will be popping up out of the ground, in the meantime, why not add some colour to your interior? Floral artwork can be a great way to add some colour to a space. There are a few types of floral artwork for you to choose from. You can stick with a classic water-colour, go for a modern abstract, or add a sleek piece of floral photography to your home. No matter what your personal style is, floral artwork can complement your design sense.
Watercolour florals have been around for centuries, and it’s no wonder why, they’re elegant and classic. Watercolours tend to add a softer touch, so if you don’t want your art to be too dramatic, I would stick with a watercolour floral. This is not to say that watercolours can’t be pigmented and vibrant, but in general, these pieces tend to be a little more muted and washed out (perfect for a more subtle and traditional space).
Modern Floral Abstracts
Modern abstract florals are a great option if you’re looking for artwork that pops. These tend to have more dramatic colours and shapes. These pieces are often bright floral looking painted shapes on white backgrounds, making the colour stand out even more. If you’re someone with a more minimal or modern space, I would go in this direction.
Floral photography can be a really interesting option for modern or eclectic homes. These pieces can range from macro leaf and petal photography all the way to minimalist black and white artworks. These macro shots range from closeups of the texture on the flower’s leaves all the way to water droplets on the leaves. Black and white floral photography is perfect for a feminine but modern space. I image these pieces in a Paris apartment with lots of white and black and neutral furnishings.
