Color and Contrast
When designing your decor with wreaths, swags or garlands, make sure to take into consideration the colors of the arrangement and compare with the colors of your walls. There needs to be a certain amount of contrast in when placing wreaths otherwise they blend into the wall color. This drains the wreath of its potential nuances of color and texture. Try placing the wreath on walls that allow contrast. This will enhance the color of the various flowers, evergreens, leaves, and grasses, attracting the eye and enhancing the decor. When ordering or crafting a wreath, choose color patterns that will work well with your existing wall colors to maximize the effect.
Wreaths are meant to draw attention and create a sense of beauty and peace. One way to enhance the look of your arrangement is to add a small spotlight and aim it at your wreath, swag, or garland. This works well for larger arrangements that have lots of detail. Proper lighting can bring out hidden colors of the arrangement showing its full decorative potential to all your friends and family.
