Orchids can be relished all year round due to its wide variety in shades, shapes and sizes, and this winter, they are the perfect centrepiece for your home.
An orchid instantly adds atmosphere to your interior, and thanks to more than 25,000 varieties, there is always one to match the latest winter trends. For example, you can opt for a chic style with the stylish Cambria, or give your interior a bohemian boost by combining various colours of orchids.
TREND 1: BOHEMIAN WINTER
This winter, oust somberness and go excessive in your interior. We’re going to see a lot more of the bohemian trend in which unconventional colours are combined. The orchid is perfect to do so. For example, combine an old-rose pink Cymbidium with a lilac-coloured Dendrobium and yellow-magenta Zygopetalum. Gather your greens, and combine them with orchids. Such an incongruent botanical collection provokes a major explosion of colour during this drab period.
TREND 2: HOTEL CHIC
Whereas last year was marked by a sweet and romantic style, this winter will be characterised as chic. Rich materials such as gold and velvet bestow a luxurious and warm atmosphere upon your home. An orchid that fits like an evening glove is the Cambria. It radiates exclusivity, and the star-shaped flower petals instantly give your interior a chic twist.
TREND 3: CHRISTMAS, THE LEAN-AND-MEAN EDITION
Not everyone can accommodate a Christmas tree. Luckily, creative solutions for decorating your home with festive greens – without a confetti of shedded needles as a byproduct – are abundant. Consider decorating the Christmas dining table with exotic air plants, like the Vanda orchid. Put some Christmas lights in a glass vase and then put a Vanda in the vase on top of them. This is a simple, quick, and ambient Christmas decoration that doesn’t take up too much space. The Vanda is available in various vibrant colours and you will even be able to enjoy its magnificence as an air plant for various weeks, even after the Christmas celebrations have passed.
