It’s time for a new year that we can still fill in completely. We take you to the expected the flowers trends for 2021, with which we want to inspire you and stimulate your creativity. And of course flowers cannot be missed…
We already saw the flowers trends in 2020: special decorative items as part of your interior. Think of artistic vases and flower pots, glassware in whimsical shapes and abstract line drawings. In 2021, these artistic pieces will have an even more prominent place in our interior. Art Director Ferdinand Belfor explains: “What we will see more and more is the joining of showpieces into a styling composition. So the deliberate bringing together of objects that together form an artistic representation. Think of unique pieces such as a vase containing an experimental bouquet, an abstract art object made of glass or clay and a dried palm leaf in a hand-blown vase. Put them together in an exciting composition and you have a performance that you can watch for a long time. The nice thing about this style is that it doesn’t have to be functional. It is your unique representation that makes the atmosphere in your interior authentic – perhaps even including objects with a personal meaning. Materials that we will see a lot in the coming year are ceramics, colored glass and recycled materials that have a low impact on the environment.’

Natural flower coloring- The Flowers trends
According to many style directors and creators, coloring flowers with natural raw materials is on the rise: ‘Floral design is becoming more artistic. We are going to see more and more experimental and artistic creations. I expect that coloring flowers in a sustainable way will become a major trend in floral art. By adding natural pigments, obtained from food products, light-colored petals get a sepia-like color palette. They are non-saturated colors that tend towards old pink and rust shades, giving the flowers almost a kind of painterly representation. Get ready for top-notch floral design, because Bloompost continues to delve into new techniques and developments…’
