Design Tips for Your Home

“The breeze and the dew make tranquil the clear dawn; Behind a curtain there is one who alone is up betimes. The Orioles sing and the flowers smile – whose then, after all is the spring.  Li Shange-Yin

Flowers enhance the appearance of any room


Participants in the Harvard study reported the greatest mood-boosting effects when fresh cut flowers were placed in common areas of the home such as the kitchen, dining room and family room. To make a small room appear more spacious use bold colored arrangements near the entrance of the rooms and more subtle shades of the same color theme around the room.

Or brighten an office with colorful, spring flowers.  Here are just a few ideas

Stop by a florist or supermarket, where you’ll find a wide selection of flowers from which to choose. kitchen-flowers.jpg
