Must-Have Dutch Tulip Decor

Monday, March 13th, 2017

Dutch Tulips Forever Pillar CandleThis week, our must-have home accents feature a flower with a tumultuous history. Regarded as a luxury item in Europe, the tulip was highly coveted, and was even used as currency in places like the Netherlands. Now, these beautiful flowers add sophistication and beauty to our gardens and homes, as well as to pillows and other decor.

Dutch Tulips Forever Pillar Candle Set

The following items from our catalog are decorated with Dutch tulips, or parrot tulips, which have a whimsical shape and charming coloration, and, they are all made in the USA.

Tulip Dish Towel

Vintage reproductions can add a serene, traditional look to any decor, as exemplified in these flameless candles. Made in the USA with waxy exteriors, the warm glow from the Pillar or Set of Three will illuminate a centerpiece, mantel or other space while adding a spring-like look to your home all year.

Dutch Tulip PlaqueUsing similar color tones with the same vintage reproduction quality, these textiles are as decorative as they are functional. The Tulip Dish Towel will hang beautifully in a kitchen for added style, but can also clean up small messes and crumbs throughout the kitchen or dining nook.

Dutch Tulips Mini Pillow

The Mini Pillow has a buckwheat fill, which means this home accent can be warmed up for use as a heating pad. A decorative heating pad, at that.

Our newest piece by artist Suzanne Nicoll brings a lifelike Dutch tulip to the walls of your home. The black background adds a refined appearance that doesn’t eliminate the charm of the rustic wood boards. This statement-making wall art would look beautiful in a gallery wall or above a mantel.

No, we will never get sick of jars! These look great with glitter on the bottom, on the top, in a chevron pattern or however you imagine them. Place one or two small flowers (real or faux) or a flameless candle to add a little mood lighting in a window or on a dining room table.

Use what you can find outside, at a flower shop or at a local farmer’s market. Pine boughs, pinecones, sticks and other natural plants and objects can create a rustic look to complement the coziness of the season. Simply spread them out in a centerpiece, on a mantel or get crafty and create shapes, personal arrangements and more.

In addition to stylish decor and country home furnishings, we hope your home is filled with warmth, love and happiness this season. Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
