Home Decor: Decorating with flowers

I love flowers, flowers of all colors and kinds. There is nothing that makes a room more inviting than a fresh bunch of flowers. Flowers are an inexpensive way to freshen up a room, liven up an area and give a furniture piece a new look and most importantly they bring a smile to my face.
I love decorating with tulips and roses, I enjoy the esthetics of these plants and how they easily fit into any decorating style. Naturally, if you have a bigger budget you can utilize more exotic flowers, try orchids they come in a variety of colors and shapes. 
Here is a photo of my walk in area where I display fresh pink tulips on top of some fashion and design books.

In this one I have brighten up a monotone and almost boring coffee table set with some colorful gerbera. 

In this set up we have used a tray to display some favorite pieces, white orchid was from Wegmans and brings in a little balance to the large candelabra from z gallerie.

What have been some of your favorite flowers you like to decorate with? I love when you share your pictures with me!
