Nature

A trend that brings nature into your home. Natural materials in combination with enlarged prints of leaves make this trend a down-to-earth interior style in which you can relax. With macrame plant hangers, tapestries and wicker rugs, you can really make this trend your own!

A soothing colour palette in which green plays a central role. Positive and calm colours such as light yellow and botanical prints are added. Dried flowers are back! Complete this style with a preserving jar filled with dried flowers.

“Bring nature indoors with autumnal coloured orchids!”

Materials

Terracotta, wood, open wickerwork: use nature as a source of inspiration!

Scandi

A timeless trend that is here to stay in home interiors! This is because of furniture and accessories. These are simple, no fuss and have a neutral appearance. The white tones within this trend can easily be combined with the nude tones that you now see a lot. Transparency is of the outmost importance by using glass and showing the roots of plants and/or flowers: what you see is what you get.

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

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 lots of wood, cork and glass. Also try combining wood and fur.

Hotel Chic

Purple and yellow are the colours for this style trend! It’s very colourful thanks to the influences of the Orient. Colours such as (mustard) yellow, emerald green and gold are combined. Purple is also a main colour. Hotel chic is a bit mysterious and sexy!

This is mainly down to the choice of materials, which are very soft and sensual. Finish things off with feathers and beads to maintain that luxurious look. We see a lot of round shapes within this theme. Patterns are very busy and usually with floral print that are full of detail.

“Elegant orchids as contrast: Beautiful!”

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

Mostly velvet, suede, velour and feathers, all soft and warm. Add some (yellow) copper and coloured glass and you're there!

Urban

Urban can best be described as a tough, masculine style trend. This is reflected in raw expressions, often in matt colours. There is plenty of room for green plants in this style, but flowers also often make an appearance. The main colours are still brown, grey, black and blue, but all slightly softer. Another nice thing to do is to look for something vintage to add to this cool, industrial look. Think of an old leather sofa, a piano or an old table lamp or vase to finish it all off.

The urban elements are combined with nature. A concrete example of this are the flower pots on black-iron legs or in a rack, such as our Zinc steel pot. Create a cool look in your house by combining this pot with a white Little Kolibri Orchids.

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

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

This style is created with lots of natural materials! Think of wood, tree trunks, crates, but also jute and terracotta. And, of course, all in matt colours.

Ethnic

With this style trend we take a trip from Central and South America to Morocco and Ibiza with African influences! The earthy colours and materials remain, but there is a shift to more raw materials such as clay and terracotta. In this case, the colours are the same as the materials used; clay, terracotta and earth colours. We see a lot of realistic prints with this style, for example human shapes and patterns but also tigers.

Add decorative pots with different patterns, in different heights for a playful effect. Orange-colored orchids stand out well within this theme. There is also room for greenery in the form of plants.

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

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

This style calls for materials such as terracotta, and so are woven and braided things with an irregular pattern. Always rugged nature.

Romantic Country

The must-haves of this style trend: accessories with a feminine and elegant look. Mix that with pastel-coloured patterns and prints, add some flowers and you're there! In terms of colour, 'water colours' such as lilac, purple and blue are perfect. Let flowers return both with real flowers and art.

Combine several different kinds of pots with orchids and green plants on a nice wooden tray and you have a real eye catcher in your home!

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

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

Rattan, reed and lots of wood. All in light tones of course. Keep to the same colour palette of natural colours such as sand, beige and grey and they can easily be combined.

Luxury Living

You will see this style trend a lot in interior and living magazines and that is due to the endless combination possibilities. Gold as the main colour remains timeless and when combined with white this duo becomes immortal. It is a refined - sophisticated - style. Comfortable luxury, but more airy and light. This space for silver, platinum and white tones. Glitter in the form of beads, crystal and precious stones are also important in this style trend.

Combine the decorative pots from the Luxury Living collection with a Fountain of Big Sensation for an even more luxurious appearance in your home.

“The elegance of the orchid fits in perfectly.”

Desiree, Orchid spotter

Materials

Choose smooth metal, sleek leather and transparent glass. 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.

Into the Jungle

This style trend is really natural! Flowerpots and other interior accessories in the shape of every animal you can think of, as long as they come from the jungle! Tigers, elephants, panthers, insects (beetles), birds and dinosaurs also appear in linear patterns in bright 80s colours. And don't forget about food; we see lots of avocados making a comeback! Other exotic fruits and vegetables can also be seen in the prints. What we also see a lot is a tropical leaf print on all kinds of things like signs, wallpaper, textiles and posters.

This style trend is not for wimps; it is tough and robust. The patterns are extremely magnified, such as the tropical leaf print, but animal prints should also embrace this. Both patterns are reflected in our ceramic. Add color to this theme by combining green plants with orchids and create your own playful jungle in your home!

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.
