Wreaths are a timeless tradition dating back hundreds of years. We often associate them strictly with holidays and seasons. I am here to tell you that there is no written law on when and where wreaths should hang. You often hear me talk about the importance of greenery and how it freshens up any design. This will give you a fresh perspective on how wreaths help give your home a fresh look.
A wreath is a piece of art, they can be made in every imaginable way. Some are made simple while others are completely over the top, as is most things the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Regardless of your style, a wreath is always a good addition to any space. Seasonal wreaths are of course a must, but there is also a place in most styles for year-round wreaths. These are generally indoor wreaths and contain dried flowers, or very realistic high-quality faux greenery. You want to use muted colors, nothing very bright, creating a naturally elegant look.
The next question is where to hang it. This type of wreath looks best placed above a mantel, bed, or any piece of furniture. If you hang it alone it looks a little stranded. The larger stationary piece of furniture anchors it creating a very polished design. While they are a piece of art you can not hang then alone on a wall like you would a canvas. Many people stere away from using indoor wreaths as year-round focal art in their home because the style and placement can be confusing. I hope this helps, and if you have any questions or need a trained eye let us know, that’s what we’re here for!
