Your Apartment Should Have Fresh Flowers in the Weirdest Places
Roses are red, vases are boring. Why not get a little more creative with where your flowers go? The trend, in fact, is to get them off the table—we’re seeing fresh flowers crop up in the most unlikely nooks and crannies of homes.
Also, please calm down, we’re not talking about crazy-fancy installations like all-peony arches straight out of a rom-com wedding. It’s more like tiny, flower-size pockets designed into decor products with an otherwise unassuming shape.
Think: a chandelier made of test tubes that looks perfectly minimal and modern as it is, but then once you put flowers in each little hole? So much more satisfying than a few blooms stuck in a vase!
The Draped Flowers curtain by Umé Studio debuted at last year’s AD Design Show—picture this dividing up your studio! The best designs that double as vases look totally striking even if you didn’t have time to pick up fresh flowers (though, PS, we’re really on board with flowers from the corner store these days). They’re customizable, too.
Decorate a wall vase or a bookend planter with dry grasses in autumn, pansies in spring, and greenery when it’s time to get holiday-ready. You could even drop a strand of string lights in the glass one it for a little lamplike action when it’s not holding buds. And not to worry if you don’t feel like buying a new flower-holding curtain just to get in on the trend—dropping a few flowers in the only bud vase you own and setting it somewhere unexpected will do the trick.
