When making your floral compositions, mixing colours and varieties of plants is crucial. In floral art the use of colour is as important as presentation in order to achieve the most attractive and natural look possible.
At Verdissimo, you will find a large selection of exotic preserved tropical leaves in different colours, so you can combine them with your favourite flowers to create unique and original compositions.
With preserved leaves and flowers you can make floral decoration that is as beautiful or is even more beautiful than fresh flowers. And, of course, the result lasts much longer as preserved plants last for months or even years without losing their original appearance.
Advantages of decorating with preserved flowers and leaves
- The preservation technique creates a long-lasting product by substituting the sap with a liquid compound made from glycerine, which allows the plant to maintain its original appearance for a long time.
- You can make exotic compositions with a variety of leaves and flowers that are hard to find when fresh. Thanks to preservation, you can use these leaves and flowers.
- They need minimal maintenance.
- Decoration with preserved leaves and flowers enhance any corner, piece of furniture, candles or any other decorative piece.
- They do not need to be watered, have access to direct sunlight or need any of the care that a fresh plant needs.
- They are ecological as they are a 100% natural product.
- They are economic as they are excellent value for money.
How to combine coloured leaves and flowers
To make sure you get the combination right, remember that colours are divided into 3 main categories:
- Primary colours: yellow, red and blue
- Secondary colours: These colours are obtained by mixing the primary colours: orange, green and violet
- Tertiary colours: These colours are obtained by mixing a primary colour and a secondary colour: There are 6 colours with different tones (colours of the rainbow).
Each primary colour is opposite to a secondary colour: for example, blue to orange, red to green or yellow to purple. These are complimentary colours.
In order to obtain a harmonious and natural result, use these guidelines when making your compositions:
If you put a green leaf on one end, some red element should go on the opposite end, and so on.
The result won’t be very attractive if you group the 3 primary colours together.
To create contrasting harmonies, use the complementary colours. For example, a red flower in the middle of olive green leaves.
Place the most intense or dark colours at the bottom of the floral composition as they have greater visual weight than light colours.
At Verdissimo, you will find an incredible variety of preserved flowers and plants and a great team of advisors for your interior decoration.
