Yes, “wild” seems to be the general antithesis of the originally intended effect. However, one intriguing fact about dried arrangements is that there are really no rights or wrongs, rhymes or reasons to decorating with them. A little bit of extra color can transform the way these earthy accents look, giving your décor a renewed sense of purpose and direction.
Have fun taking your cues from the season. In the fall, you might opt for rich, warm notes that capture the spirit of the season, like the meadow-meets-mustard tones found in The Gold Rush, coupled with a few arrangements in pink, bronze, and orange. Spring and summer may find you gravitating to lighter, airier hues reminiscent of the beach, like pale blues and soft blushes. Mixing up unexpected elements is fun because it unleashes your inner artist.
Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to decorate with dried arrangements. They’re inherently beloved for their easy, down-to-earth appeal, and the simple way they upgrade different areas of the home with minimal effort. What’s not to love?
