Une orchidée dans votre salle de bain : l'endroit idéal !

Orchids in your bathroom: the perfect spot!

Placing orchids in your bathroom is not a common occurrence but as the orchid is originally from the tropics of the rainforest, it actually prefers to live in a moist environment. As long as the orchid has access to some natural light, you will have a bloomin’ good orchid to brighten up your bathroom. Here’s some tips on how to do it best:

Create a tranquil oasis

The bathroom is renowned as a place of relaxation and the fewer objects in it the better. Keep it simple with a touch of colour to create small bursts of energy. Placing Phalaenopsis orchids in your bathroom on the side of the sink is a simple way of creating a tranquil oasis as it requires minimal styling. It adds a touch of colour to a neutral colour scheme!

Try that rustic edge

Planting your orchid in a straw basket can create a stylish yet warm look in your bathroom. The Phalaenopsis lends itself to this style perfectly due to its stunning shades of purple and yellow.

However, if you would prefer to try something a little more extravagant why not hang your orchids? A Vanda is a perfect variety to create a display of hanging orchids as the plant has aerial roots. With an iron wire as a suspension system, you can create a stylish yet rustic orchid arrangement.

A hint of romance

Adding a hint of romance to your bathroom is extremely easy once you know which orchids to choose. Chose a pastel-coloured pot and include an elegant, pink Phalaenopsis – this combination oozes romance. If your bathroom is dark, combine a pot with a Phalaenopsis in rich purple, the most romantic colour of the year.
