Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's refresh!" One of the most delightful ways to bring springtime cheer indoors is by incorporating fresh flowers into your apartment. Not only do flowers add a touch of natural beauty, but they also infuse your living space with a sense of vitality and serenity. Here are some creative ideas to incorporate fresh flowers into your apartment decor this spring: 

Welcoming Entryway 
Place flowers in your entryway for a welcoming space as you enter your apartment.

Set the tone for your apartment by welcoming guests with a bouquet of fresh flowers in the entryway. We suggest placing a chic vase or a rustic mason jar filled with tulips, daffodils or hyacinths on a console table or a shelf near the entrance. The burst of colour will instantly uplift spirits and create a warm ambiance, all while introducing a delightful smell.  

Table Centrepieces 
Place flowers in your entryway for a welcoming space as you enter your apartment.

One of the most common places to bring some life into your apartment is at the dining table. Whether you have a traditional dining table or dine at a kitchen island, a fresh bouquet of flowers is a wonderful centrepiece to gaze at while you enjoy your meals. We suggest choosing a low-profile vase or a decorative bowl and filling it with an array of spring blooms such as roses, peonies or ranunculus. For a whimsical touch, incorporate some lush greenery and delicate filler flowers, including baby's breath or even wax flowers!  

Make your windowsill in your rental a place for growing your own flowers.

Another common location to display your fresh picks is on the windowsill. This location is a great one to brighten up a room and allows the flowers to get loads of light. This spot is also ideal for those looking to grow their own flowers or simply to add some extra colour. We suggest lining up small pots of crocuses, daffodils or muscari along the windowsill, allowing the sunlight to illuminate their beauty. You can also hang glass vases filled with single stems or small bunches of flowers for a minimalist yet elegant look. 

Wall Hangings 

If you're looking for a different way to showcase some flowers, try crafting your own floral wall hangings or wreaths. Gather an assortment of fresh flowers and foliage to arrange them into intricate patterns or cascading arrangements on a wire frame or embroidery hoop. Hang these botanical masterpieces on bare walls or doors to add a touch of whimsy and charm to your apartment decor. 

Bedroom Oasis 
Make your windowsill in your rental a place for growing your own flowers.

The bedroom is an underrated location to showcase flowers in an apartment, but doing so is actually a great way to promote sleep. By placing a small vase of fragrant blooms such as lavender or jasmine on your bedside table, you can promote relaxation and restful sleep with the fragrance that the flowers emit. You can also adorn your dresser or vanity with a petite bouquet of roses or peonies to add a romantic touch to the space. 

Bathroom Retreat 
Place flowers in your bathroom for a spa experience.

The bathroom is also a creative place to add some greenery as you transform it into a spa-like retreat blooming with fresh smells and vibes. Try displaying bunches of eucalyptus or lavender stems in a glass vase to infuse the room with a refreshing aroma and a pop of colour. You can also float delicate blossoms of orchids or lotus flowers in a bowl of water for a serene and zen-like atmosphere.  

Floating Flowers 

If you’re looking to be more creative with your flower arrangements, try floating flowers. The imagery of flowers floating in the water can be very gorgeous and establish a feeling of relaxation. Some flowers are ideal for this, including lotus flowers and water lilies, but you can also use most other flowers. However, they must have lovely big petals, as that adds to the beauty of this floating floral arrangement. Next, fill an appealing, decorative bowl that fits the aesthetic of your apartment to exhibit the selected flowers. You can use one big floating flower arrangement or opt for a few smaller ones. This will add style and elegance to your apartment, adding a modern touch in a simple yet very effective fashion. 

Suspended Bottles 
Get creative with your flower displays and try to put them in suspended bottles. 

Another fun way to add some flowers to your apartment would be to go vertical. Try displaying your fresh cuts in glass bottles and hang them with rope. This is a fun DIY idea for your home that you can adjust in almost any room. Hang them from your ceiling, a pole or even on your wall! This way, you can get even more creative with your flowers and enhance your personality throughout your apartment. Check out a tutorial HERE.  

In conclusion, decorating your apartment with fresh flowers is a simple yet effective way to celebrate the beauty of spring and breathe new life into your living space. Whether you're designing your entryway, dining table, bedroom or bathroom, let your creativity shine and transform your apartment into a botanical paradise that uplifts the senses and soothes the soul. So go ahead, indulge in the splendour of spring flowers and watch as your apartment blossoms into a haven of natural beauty and tranquillity.
