Inspired by the Iris

Good morning!!

I was contacted a little while ago by the folks of Arcadian Home Decor, and when they mentioned they could do a post about iris, I couldn't say no. They're my mom's favourite flower and I just think they're so pretty :)


Greetings! I'm Jenn and I'm a writer with Arcadian Home Decor, an e-commerce website that specializes in popular home decor trends from around the world. Every day I spend hours pouring over great interior design blogs looking for things to get excited about, and Brittany's website Gallery No. Eight is a personal fave, which is why I'm so excited to be guest posting here today.

When looking for home decor inspiration itís best to turn to Mother Nature - her abundance of beautiful landscapes, flora, and fauna never fail when it comes to interior spaces, and one of the most incredible of these is the iris. Tall and stately yet soft and delicate, and in a heavenly shade of purple, these interior spaces were inspired by the iris.  

An Iris Decal

Brilliant oversized irises become a pretty focal point when stretched across a bureau and then onto the wall, making it appear even bigger.  

Blasts of Color

With beige walls and wood floors, a blast of colour is a welcomed design choice, like the two-toned dining room chairs and matching window treatments. The fuchsia piece in the corner match the bunches of irises showcased in tall vases.

Irises look perfect in their natural surroundings, especially here in this home garden under a wall-mounted stone water fountain and al fresco table set-up.

A bedroom with bird bedding and vintage brown leather chairs draws inspiration from the scientific iris wall hanging over the bed.

A cozy kitchen vignette boasts wallpaper with a floral motif, and the colours are picked up in the red tabletop as well as the purple trumpet shade on the hanging light fixture.

Floral Table Setting

Irises make for beautiful table decor on formal table settings, especially when paired with floating candles in tall tapered glass hurricane holders.

The irises in this bedroom, both on the bedding as well as in a vase on the dresser, look wonderful flanked by sage green and gold embellishments.

An iris is stunning enough to stand on its own, like in this simple grouping of sterling and milk glass vases with just a few blooms.
