All the Ways that Flowers, Red or Blue or Any Colour, can Brighten Your Day

No matter the weather, the environment, nor the company, the presence of flowers always seem to brighten up the mood. Flowers can make us feel joy, excitement, love, pride, comfort and a lot more. Do you ever wonder how?

Flowers stimulate our senses. Their beautiful colours and sensational scents play with our emotions, and they have the ability to make any scene much more vibrant and lively.

Brant Florist Orange Flowers

Who can look at bouquets like these, overflowing with bright splashes of red flowers, orange flowers, and yellow flowers and not marvel at their beauty? Even as a simple image they explode right off the page like fireworks, filling the white space with colour, life and energy.

What you don’t get from the pages are the unforgettable scents, with their dazzling hues and refreshing fragrances, flowers captivate our minds and engage our senses.

Try adding some flowers to an office, a school desk, a living room, anywhere. Watch how their colours stand out against the usual browns, greys, whites and blacks of our furniture. Close your eyes and take deep breaths of their aroma. You can’t help but smile! This is a great way to turn the drab into the delightful.

Brant Florist Sunflowers

It’s also a great way to reconnect with nature. In a world of bricks and mortar, flowers allow us to bring nature into our lives, wherever we go. They remind us of the beauty all around us. Take sunflowers, for example. Not only do those yellow flowers shine as brilliantly as the sun…

Dust Cedar is a warm dark pink with a calming, soothing vibe.

A flower of this colour pairs brilliantly with vibrant purple flowers, especially the deep, luxurious Bodacious purple. This striking hue can easily be the centerpiece of your floral arrangement.

Potter’s Clay Brown Flowers

Potter’s Clay is a straightforward and traditional brown that’s just right for fall. Some bronze flowers would represent this colour nicely, especially in a garden once the leaves outside start falling, providing natural green and orange complements.

Spicy Mustard Yellow Flowers

The dark citrus yellow flowers, such as those that are Spicy Mustard, beautifully complements traditional fall colours like red flowers, orange flowers and bronze flowers, as well as flowers with shades of burgundy and navy.

Strong as steel, the neutral gray Sharkskin can easily complement the other colours. You could try silver-leafed flowers or nearby objects to get the most out of this colour. Ornaments, vases, the natural grays and silvers in an ordinary kitchen, for example.

Riverside Blue

Riverside, a dark aquatic blue. Symbolic of strength, reassurance and dependability, it provides a vivid complement or contrast to the rest of the list.

Airy Blue

Rose Quartz and Serenity Pink Flowers

Last but not least are the colours of the year, the pale elegant Rose Quartz and the tranquil Serenity pink flowers, which continue to hold a place among your fall flowers.
