Flowers are unique in their ability to infuse a room with life force, ephemeral beauty, preciousness, opulence and natural wonder. Flowers & plants can lift the mood of a space instantly, helping you through the tougher times and lifting great times even higher. Here are my favorite trends & must-haves in the flower department for 2012!

Glowing orange blooms are a great way to test out a trend with Pantone’s 2012 Color of the Year Tangerine Tango and all its warmth, health energy and cheer without jumping into major furniture shopping!

On the good fashionable tip, retro flowers are my pick of the season.  Check these 70’s-Style “prehistoric” plants:

birds of paradise

Ranunculus are divine color charms, unfolding like peonies and colored in a full rainbow.

multicolored carnations

And my FAVORITE of the old-fashioned… CARNATIONS! I know carnations have gotten a bad rap, but its time we see past that and load up on mountains of carnations… tight, abundant bunches in little vases, or even old coffee tins, can be delightful.  My friend Chloe started me on the carnation fever, and now I can’t stop!

What do you think? Ready to grab yourself flowers…just because?!  Do it!!!  You can find me on Instagram – I’m  “thetaoofdana” !
