Lavender Garland
Powerful Purple

Purple, lavender, lilac and violet. Purple is a wonderful color option for girl’s bedrooms, living rooms or bathrooms. It combines the stability of blue with the energy of red for a wise, dignified room. Purple is also commonly used to signify ambition and creativity, offering a magical look to a child’s bedroom. When combined with soft shades, purple can be soothing while offering a serious atmosphere when used with dark tones. Clean and fresh, purple flowers bring all of these sensations into your house. Lavender Wreath and Lavender Garland each feature a wide range of appealing purple hues ready for display, offering stunning visuals in any season.

Bold & Bright Red

It is well-known that the color red is as powerful as they come. Offering romance, warmth and rich tones for decorating country homes, this color is one that is versatile in the world of flower displays and wreaths. Choose burgundy and rust reds for rich tonal quality, and brighter colors from red berries or apples for a splash of vibrancy. Red and green are complementary colors and truly shine together on Berry Hydrangea Wreath and Pine & Berries Mini Wreath. Merlot Willow Wreath shows sophistication on a wall. If red seems too rich for your tastes, try using softer variations toned down with cream and off-white furnishings.
