Interior decoration using floral and plant ornamentation is an attractive way to enhance any space. In neutral places, which do not have a lot of visual or ornamental stimulation, they give a natural and decorative touch that is capable of enhancing any ambience instantly. Thanks to their great variety of options, all kinds of interior spaces can be personalised: homes, offices, restaurants, shopping centres, airports…
For the plant and floral decoration of large spaces, preserved trees are a great solution: they don’t need direct sunlight, maintenance or watering. Stabilizzation is a technique that is carried out with conserving products which are glycerine-based, and which allow the plant or tree to maintain the same appearance that it had when it was alive and preserves its original appearance and colours for months or years. Stabilizzation is the best natural conservation method that exists, and it is much superior to pressed or air-dried flowers. In addition, the care that preserved plants require is minimal as their cleaning and maintenance involves removing dust and dirt.
The vast majority of plant elements can be preserved in order to obtain endless decorative designs. Today, we at Verdissimo want to introduce you to one of the most striking designs: interior decoration with preserved palms: elegant and incredibly spectacular.
Palm trees for interior decoration
One of the most popular varieties is the phoenix palm, with a slender trunk which can reach great heights. The preserved models usually have an average height between 1.80m and 3m. They are ideal for decorating foyers and the entrances to buildings or hotel and catering establishments.
Phoenix palms, with their ochre and golden tones on the trunk in contrast with the green of the leaves, offer an extremely attractive result. Their beauty make them the perfect element for ornamental use.
The Phoenix palm is an easily recognisable species and one which has been used often throughout time. In ancient times, it was considered the symbol of victory and it was associated with many properties, such as longevity, stamina and beauty.
Another species that is often used in plant decoration is the canary palm, which comes from the Fortunate Isles and is the natural symbol of the archipelago. It is large and can reach a height of between 10m and 13m. It has a thick, strong trunk with a diameter of between 50cm and 70cm and with leaves like palmed feathers, which are really spectacular. Its appearance and elegance make it perfect for spacious spaces in the entrance of office buildings and public organisations. They are also used often in the halls of large shopping centres and places of public transport like stations and airports, giving a touch of distinction and a calm and relaxed atmosphere.
How to create permanent plant decoration in buildings
When thinking of decorating with plants or floral art creations, the main problem in buildings and indoor spaces is the lack of direct sunlight and the need to constantly water, care or replace the plant when it deteriorates or wilts.
This problem disappears thanks to preserved indoor trees. Stabilizzation is a method of conservation, which is completely natural, and which allows plants to maintain their original appearance and texture for a long time. They really look like fresh plants, but they do not need any kind of maintenance. You only have to dust them and they will keep their natural appearance for years.
Decorating with palms
Palms are exotic trees with great decorative power. Thanks to stabilizzation, it is possible to enjoy their beauty in the home or in any kind of building or business. The presence of preserved trees, especially palms, gives an elegant and refined touch. They enhance any space in a beautiful and attractive way and they are ecological and economic.
Verdissimo’s decorators have two designs for interior decoration with palms:
Green on green
To create a relaxing space, you only have to use different tones of green together. The aim is to recreate a natural space in an indoor environment. Green gives eyes a rest and creates a serene and peaceful ambience. The Washingtonia palm is perfect for creating a hall centrepiece or for spaces with a lot of height. As well as freshness and naturalness, they give an exotic and different touch.
Elegance and sophistication
Combining a Phoenix palm with earth and golden tones creates a sophisticated and elegant effect, perfect for hotels, restaurants or apartment buildings. You should remember that the combination of greens, reds and browns darken, which is why a little sunlight is advisable.
