Today, we’re giving you tips on How to Style and Accessorize your Interior Design using Permanent Floral Pieces as Accessories.
If you think that your options for accessorizing are hard objects, books, and art- you’re forgetting a very important category! Permanent florals are not just for your grandmother’s home; today we’re illustrating that with some major inspiration.
You’ll see inspiration photos, as well as our own custom work in our Dallas interior design projects, of floral pieces that bring the perfect color, drama, and tie-it-all-together goodness that only a custom piece can bring. Organized by area of the home, scroll down to be inspired for your entire home; from the living room to shelving to patio.
The Orchid/ Greenery/ Seed Pod/ Leaf combination in the simple silver tray adds interest and texture to this dining room table in Dallas.
Here, in a Westlake, TX interior design project by Baker Design Group, our designers had a low, elongated permanent floral centerpiece made to add color but not interrupt any conversation with too much height or distract from mealtime eating with too much width. The rustic tray compliments the Hill-Country inspired design.
A dining room credenza in Argyle, TX was accessorized by our Dallas designers with a sleek silver bowl arrangement. the lines of the bowl complement the lamps and the lines of the grasses flowing out from above the white orchids, black river stones, and deer moss mimic the gold art above it!
Styled bookshelves HOW TO’s are some of the most popular searched terms by Pinterest users. It makes sense. In the Interior Design world, we have been artfully accessorizing bookshelves and etageres with decor as a way to combine function with beauty for all time, and some DIYers are eager to get tips on how to style and organize their shelves on their own.
In our Dallas Interior Design projects, we like to create several small custom pieces to bring into shelving areas. Whether it is a bookshelf or open storage in an entertainment center, adding the color and “life” of a permanent floral accessory is a way to tie in colors and break up metals, books, and other items that are usually neutral or dark colors that otherwise fill the shelves.
The subtle green brought into this natural wood focused entertainment cabinet and shelves is just what the space needed. In this interior design project in Westlake, TX, our permanent florals greatly enhanced nooks in custom shelving.
Orchids are elegant and SO versatile. With a change of container or creative addition of natural elements like driftwood or something more glamorous and on-trend like colored glass or crystal geodes, an orchid arrangement can go from classic and timeless to a statement maker that updates a space.
These three examples illustrate the adaptability to different styles that orchid arrangements have. In the three photos above, we’ve created a luxe piece using a matte gold container and broken glass stones, a floral with a naturalist look using succulents and driftwood, and a transitional piece that pairs driftwood with shaped loops of bright green grasses.
If traditional Dallas interior design is more your taste, a classic entryway arrangement with orchids and a chic container is the perfect way to update your space while staying true to your style.
Bringing in color, style, and life, interior design is enhanced by placement of permanent florals! The best part is that, once you find the perfect floral piece for your coffee or side table, you never have to worry about watering it.
In an Argyle, TX interior design project by Baker Design Group, our designers placed an orchid in a silver container that perfectly complimented the coffee table decor on the side table. We included the up close look to see the leaves that line the container and show through the metal- a unique design touch that we think turned out quite well.

Do you have a corner like this in your home? Keeping the open floor plan roomy, a piece of furniture wasn’t appropriate, but these tall urns with modern grasses were the perfect fit to make embellish and accessorize this corner. Our Westlake interior designers had a great idea to add these urns to a hard-to-decorate area.

We cannot get over how perfect this inspiration photo is to pair with this post. The orchid arrangement and interior design style of this bathroom are top-notch. In a guest bath or powder room, we like the bravery of bringing in a larger permanent floral piece! It makes a staement and softens the otherwise cold, tiled space.

Our Spring shipment of them was heavy to allow for designing overflowing bowls of succulents, mosses, and florals in natural wood, metal, and ceramic bowls and trays. The possibilities are endless when you combine interior design
An entryway is another place to bring in florals as an accessory. Above, two projects that are soon to be completed on our floral workbench, are featured. The left photo is of an architectural design to flank the front door a more modern house. The white hydrangeas soften the look. We love the dainty flowering light green bunches paired with the upright grasses and large tropical leaves. We can’t wait to see all of these outdoor designs in their containers and at their new homes!
We know that the photo above is an exception to our outdoors category, but do you love this corporate eating area as much as we do? We love how outdoor spaces, and this interior space, bring natural looseness and airy greenery into their designs.
Corporate design cannot be forgotten when it comes to accessorizing. When it comes to corporate interior design, we think it is important to combine the functions of the office with the style of home. By bringing in color and sleek florals to areas like meeting room credenzas, receptionist desks, and waiting areas, an office can instantly look more well-designed.
