#H5TRENDS // Floral Decor – Tulips

Earth laughs in flowers.

 

Tulips //

According to this article, Tulips are sturdy flowers that can last up to 10 days after cutting if you know how to care for them correctly. Choose fresh blooms to begin with is key, and you can prolong their beauty by displaying them in the right place and giving them plenty of water.

Wrap the stems in wet cloth or paper towels. When you bring the tulips home from the shop, keep them wrapped in paper towels or a washcloth soaked in fresh water. This will ensure that the tulips don’t start prematurely drying out on the way home. Do this even if the distance from the flower shop to your house isn’t very far. Any time out of water will cause the tulips to age faster.

 

Cut 1/4 inch from the base of the stems.[1] Use a small pair of clippers and cut the stems at an angle. This will help them readily soak up water from the vase.

Remove extra leaves from the base of the stems. If the stems have any leaves that would be submerged in water when you put them in the vase, remove them. The leaves could start rotting and cause the flowers to go limp before their time.

Choose a suitable vase. Pick a vase that will rise up to cover at least half the height of the tulips you’ve brought home. They’ll be able to lean against the vase without bending over. If you use a shorter vase, the flowers will eventually bend forward. This is an effect some people like, but it may cause the flowers to die more quickly.

Wash the vase. Make sure it doesn’t have sediment leftover from your last bouquet. Use soap and warm water to wash it thoroughly, then dry it completely with a towel. This way your fresh tulips won’t pick up bacteria that could case them to start rotting more quickly.

Fill the vase with cold water. Cold water will keep the stems fresh and crisp, while warm or hot water would cause them to become weak and soggy.

Position the stems around the vase. Arrange the tulips so that they each have a little space in the vase, rather than leaning them all on top of one another. Giving them each a little room will prevent them from crushing one another, which will lead to premature petal droppage and shorten the lifespan of your flowers.

Keep the vase filled with fresh water. Tulips drink up a lot of water. Make sure it never completely runs out, or they’ll begin to wilt very quickly.

Add some flower food. The addition of flower food, or flower preservative, which is available at flower shops, will greatly lengthen your flowers’ lifespan. Read the directions and sprinkle in some food when you add water. It’ll keep your tulips standing tall and looking perky for as long as possible.

  • You can try putting lemon juice, pennies, and other such materials in the vase with the flowers. Some say these tricks work, but research shows that flower food is much more effective.[2]

Keep the vase out of the sun. Place it in an area that doesn’t get too hot and sunny. Otherwise, the tulips will wilt in the heat.

Don’t style tulips with flowers in the Narcissus family. Daffodils and other flowers in this family exude a substance that causes flowers to fade faster. Tulips work best in a vase all by themselves.[3]

#H5FYI – Style Education – Lofts

A loft can be an upper storey or attic in a building, directly under the roof. Alternatively, a loft apartment refers to large adaptable open space, converted for residential use from some other use, often light industrial.

Our buying manager, Marta feels that lofts are a perfect place to incorporate Men’s decor because of the industrial feel a loft often gives out. Yes, Men’s decor tends to be on the darker and more sleek side but it is timeless for both men and women.

Statement art is great for any space but displaying key art pieces in a loft gives the large space character.

Even if you don’t live in a loft, you can definitely incorporate many of its’ minimalist qualities and esthetique, such as having all white walls and modern furniture. You can opt for an eclectic living room set
