Basic

A trend that is very much hot and happening, and yet still looks timeless. This is because of the furniture and accessories, which have a very clean and neutral feel. The orchid fits in perfectly here. In white it blends in beautifully with its surroundings, and in colour it becomes an eye-catching accent in this clean look interior design trend.

This is a basic look that works for everyone: what you see is what you get. The contouring of the furniture and accessories is clear and simple. It’s All About The Basics is easy on the eye, vibrant prints don’t fit in here. Orchids are used to add bright colours.

“Create a rustic foundation and be creative with big flowers!”

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

With this trend it’s all about simplicity and keeping things light, airy and neutral. This certainly applies to the materials you use. Think wool, linen, glass and unstained woods; preferably in their natural shades and using white as the base colour.

Modern

Sharp and prominent lines belong within this interior design trend. It is a heavy, boxy style which allows the organic shapes of orchids to stand out beautifully. This is how you create contrast! It’s also fun to combine Geometric lines with 1950s-style pastels, creating a surprising effect.

Scandinavian design suits this interior trend perfectly. It’s beautiful with black and white as the primary colours and all those prominent lines and patterns creating even more contrast. You only need a little accent colour to make it really stand out.

“Elegant orchids as contrast: Beautiful!”

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

It’s all about contrast here as well. Combine organic materials such as pottery,
with industrial metal; and glossy materials with matt ones. Use an orchid to elevate
the geometrical lines of your interior.

Urban

You can quickly see the resemblance with old factories from the beginning of the 20th century. The basis is unpolished, with broad shapes, in various shades of grey, white, brown and black. The colours often have a matt coating. Industrial Style is robust and more masculine than feminine. Coloured orchids can help you add exciting contrasts as well as refined detailing.

Coloured radiator pipes to stand out from the wall, exposed electricity wires; it almost speaks for itself that flowery wallpaper does not fit in here. However, real flowers are suitable for any look. Exotic and bright coloured orchids are the yin to the yang here. Also, opt for old or antique furniture with powerful and distinctive shapes.

"What an impact; a delicate orchid vs. raw industrial wall!”

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

Tough, rugged and powerful materials define an industrial look. That’s why concrete, iron and stone are dominant. When choosing accessories, make sure you take note the materials. For example, opt for baskets made of steel wire and iron racks. Wood is also a good addition in this setting: natural or with a washing, to give it a used, distressed look.

Vintage

Grandma’s vase, that little rack from the car boot sale. Very Vintage sounds like a cosy and fun interior design style that you can easily pull together on a lazy Sunday afternoon. But, it’s all about correctly combining well-considered items. Keep your furniture and accessories in the same colour palette. Within this style, orchids are the link to connecting different elements.

You can accentuate the vintage style by displaying ornaments in different places in your home. For example, in the kitchen: keep rolling pins and wooden spatulas in a large tin with other kitchen accessories on your kitchen worktop.

“In particular our orange orchid suits this style to a tee."

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

This style calls for materials such as leather, glass, copper, wood and ceramics. Earth tones and other natural shades work especially well for Very Vintage. You can keep this familiar homely vibe alive and fresh by using orchids as accessories.

Romantic Mood

What do you need for this interior design trend? Colourful accessories with graceful lines with a powdery coating that complement each other. This will give it a slightly distressed and antique look. Opt for a sofa with lots of cushions with different fabrics and you will create this homely and cosy style in no time.

This can quickly become a very feminine style, both sweet & romantic. A couple of iron accents, a rugged rug or a brown leather sofa can bring balance. If you would prefer to accentuate the feminine feel, opt for rattan and cane, and keep them in their original colour. Choose brightly coloured orchids to add a surprising accent.

“Don’t hold back with the number of orchids you use.”

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

Wood, rattan and cane: cosy materials that (without staining or painting) suit Romantic Mood extremely well. ‘Cool’ materials also suit this country style, think marble and pottery. Keep to the same colour palette of natural colours such as sand, beige and grey and they can easily be combined.

Touch of glamour

Orchids and this interior style are just made for each other! Luxury, extravagance and a feminine touch are combined in a stylish way. It is all about creating a balance between (apparent) extremes. A white-looking glittery ribbon enhances the glossy pink pottery and a solid black sofa balances out the baroque patterns of the curtains.

You will see black, gold and silver all around you. A perfect combination with all the different variations of pink. Within this trend, you can strategically add a true accent colour. Just like the pots of the orchids in these photos. An interior that has a slight country or baroque style is easily transformed into A Touch Of Glamour.

“The elegance of the orchid fits in perfectly.”

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

Choose shiny fabrics, such as silk or velvet, as this creates a luxury vibe for your furnishings. Beautiful in combination with leather. Choose accessories with an eye-catching finish, such as rhinestones, lacquer and matt metallic. When combined with orchids, you will achieve a striking interior style which is not over the top.

Rob Olsthoorn’s care tips

With a little attention to care, you can enjoy our Little Kolibri Orchids in your home for a long time. Make sure you water them regularly and put them in a nice place; avoid draughts and direct sunlight. Here are some frequently asked questions..

down
  • Do orchids require specialist food? arrow
  • Orchids require orchid food once a month.

  • How often should I water an orchid, and how should I do this? arrow
  • Pro tip: Submerge the root ball in water once a week. Leave the plant to drain before placing it back in its ornamental pot.

  • How can I get an orchid to rebloom? arrow
  • When your orchid stops blooming, you can get it to rebloom. Snip the branches just above the third node. Have a little patience, and in time, your orchid will rebloom.

  • Where is the best place to keep an orchid? arrow
  • Orchids love a bright position and room temperatures between 15 and 25°C. Orchids do not like draughts or direct sunlight. Do not place your orchid near a fireplace or radiator. Be sure not to place it by a fruit bowl, as the ethylene gas emitted can cause premature aging of the Little Kolibri Orchid’s flowers.
