Let your home blossom with these floral trends
Do trends in the floral industry exist? Yes, they do! In this blog you can read all about the trends when it comes to ‘greenery and flowers’ in 2020 and how to apply these to your own home. Here are the floral trends of 2020 according to us.
1. Dried flowers
Why throw out what you can also recycle? According to our style director Anton van Duijn bouquets of dried flowers are making a big comeback: “Dried grasses, grains and flowers have that classic and romantic feel with which you can make infinite beautiful designs. What about lush bound stems as a bouquet of field flowers or a herbarium with pressed flowers. Popular stems to use are for example roses, baby’s breath or Cortaderia, an elegant panicle.” Dried flowers are great as a permanent souvenir, for example as a gift to a loved one. In short, not only trendy, but also sustainable!
2. Less is more
‘With this floral arrangement style, you create more space between the stems, instead of filling it with leaves. This way of styling is inspired by the century-old minimal floral arrangement style Ikebana from Japan, in which space and asymmetry are the focus. Less is more, so it’s all about the right balance and unique appeal. A living designer piece,’ according to Anton. How to apply this to your interior? Divide some statement stems in different small vases, creating a nonchalant composition. Or arrange multiple stems together into one bouquet, without filling the empty space with leaves. These empty spaces add some visual excitement and an artistic look and feel.
3. Horizontal floral art
Next to the classic round shape that you’re probably used to, we’ll also see some surprising shapes this year. An example is horizontal floral art, in which the stems don’t go up but are arranged in a wide fashion.
4. Statement stems
Large, larger, largest! We love big flowers and that’s why according to Anton some seasonal flowers will be cultivated in a bigger size: ’A bouquet with small peonies will be replaced by larger peonies on long stems. With the right vase, just a few large flowers are a real statement in your home.’
5. Outspoken vases
Back in the day, the vase was used simply as a water container for your bouquet, however, we feel that the vase really puts a mark on how your bouquet looks. Anton: ‘The vase is the crown on your work, the important finishing touch on your bouquet. The shape of the vase and the diameter of the neck complement the bouquet and give shape to the end result.’
So, the vase is more important than ever! They become a statement in our interior and preferably have an artsy and exclusive look.
Which flower will make a comeback in 2020?
The world of flowers consists of many types and some gems are easily forgotten. Anton feels that we should put the freesia back into the spotlight: ‘I really find it a very undervalued flower. It used to be on your mother’s table in a small jar beside a small green branch, but originally this flower is over 3 feet high, which makes it so special. Same goes for a gladiola, it’s a cheaper flower, but oh, so pretty. Especially the Butterfly Gladiola is a beautiful one because it’s two-toned’.
