Orchids and the interior design styles

 

 

Oriental style

If the interior contains elements of oriental style, then you simply cannot do without orchids. In a rich and decorative oriental setting, orchids look “in their place” – they dilute a pompous design by giving it airiness and grace.

Japanese style

In the Japanese interior, the orchid is a very popular decor theme – plants, paintings with orchids, decorative tiles, and wall art are very common in this country.

Classic style

Very popular in all countries, the classic style is perfect to introduce the orchids.

Minimalist style

In the laconic and strict minimalism, a delicate orchid flower looks especially elegant. Luxurious and bold, the orchid flower is a little bit unexpected there, but this is what the modern approach to interior design is all about.

High-tech style

The orchid makes a high-tech room cozy and homely.

Loft and industrial styles

In ultra-modern loft and industrial styles, orchids can look very interesting, making the room more lively and warm.

Country style

Probably, it’s the only interior design style where the delicate and sophisticated flower doesn’t fit.

What you might don’t know about the orchids

 

  • The rule of thumb for watering orchids is: rarely, but lots at a time.
  • Orchids don’t like transplanting; do it rarely and only if the roots don’t fit in the pot.
  • Don’t touch orchid buds. Firstly, there is no need of it. Secondly, orchid buds are extremely sensitive to plant’s viruses and unsanitary handling can be one of the main causes of orchids’ infections. If for any reason you must touch, wash your hands with soap and warm water before handling your plant.

 

“I try to always have flowers in the house. I have a florist in Chinatown, and they deliver orchids every two weeks. I like living with living things.” -Phillip Lim
