The sunflower’s sunny petals are sure to cheer your spirits and bring a little sunshine into your home. When decorating with sunflowers, you don’t have to limit yourself to the actual flower itself. Sunflowers add color and style in paintings or fabrics too.
The best time to decorate your home with sunflowers is in late summer and early fall.
Sunflowers make a statement no matter where they are placed.
They tend to make the water murky, so using a vessel that you can’t see through is best. Sunflowers have a thick stem and are quite heavy. To avoid the flowers falling over and out, make sure you have a very full vessel. The more flower stems, the less tipping about.
Brightly colored and bold, sunflowers light up any space, including kitchens, with their cheerful faces. Bring some of their color and beauty to your kitchen by adding them to your decorating theme. Because sunflowers are so bright and dominating, adding just a few goes a long way. Scatter them throughout the kitchen to create a cohesive design and complement the sunflowers you bring into the space by balancing them with other colors and patterns.
Paint the walls of your kitchen a light, creamy yellow to act as a backdrop to the more vibrant sunflowers. Use a large canvas with a closeup of a sunflower's head or create a scene with several several tall sunflowers from vinyl wall art. It should draw and focus the eye.
You can also add some subtle touches of sunflowers to the space in the shape of cabinet knobs, prints on hand towels and other small touches that will not dominate the space.
