How to style for summer

Published: 08/05/2024

Summer is finally here and there is no better way to rejoice in that sunshine feeling than adding some gorgeous summer florals into your home. With so many choices of colours and combinations, here are our five favourite ways to bring some of the sunny season in.

1. Choose flowers that look like sunshine.

A flower that simply shouts summer is the bright happy sunflower. Known for their devotion to the sun, tracking its movement across the sky, sunflowers are a symbol of warmth, hope and optimism. Our favourite way to display these is in a graceful white ceramic jug. Arriving ready styled and set in resin, simply pop on the side for an instant injection of summer.

2. Mix your brights.

If ever there is a season to go bold and bright, summer is it! Bringing with it flowers full of colour, the opportunity to install your very own rainbow is too good to miss. We love to create a cottage garden mix full of red poppies, blue love in the mist, daisies, pink peonies and pastel roses. Arranged together in a natural stone vase, this combination will spark joy on even the dreariest of British summer days.

3. Pick a classic summer stem.

If you’re looking for a floral arrangement to last longer than the summer season, why not opt for a more timeless style that will look perfectly at home all year round. Neutral colours with soft greenery are an elegant way to bring some floral touches to a room. With this is mind, we have created several classic vase arrangements including a white dahlia and blush rose combination that will truly stand the test of time.

4. Buy a bouquet

One way to make sure you get a beautiful colour combination is to buy a ready-made bouquet. Full of complementary colours with the perfect balance of flowers and foliage, a bouquet will arrive simply ready to unwrap and style in your favourite vase. A Floralsilk favourite is a summery mix of yellow and peach roses, blue aster daisies and small thistles accompanied by feathery foliage.

5. Bunch big blooms together

Make a statement with a burst of big blooms all grouped together in a vase. A favourite flower of many, the hydrangea really knows how to provide a wow factor all on its own. Naturally occurring in a whole host of colours ranging from soft whites and pinks through to brights and blues, this versatile flower can be found in tones to match any home interior.
