Orchids are a delicate flower that provide a great starting point for you to model your room around.

There are many sources of inspiration that interior designers draw from when decorating a given space. One timeless source of inspiration is nature, specifically the vibrant colors and patterns produced by the vast arrays of flora indigenous to different regions.

A white orchid is a delicate and exotic flower that has significant symbolism throughout the world. It has routes in Greek mythology and is even the official flower of Venezuela and City Flower of Shaoxing, China. It can be found in almost any habitat around the world, yet its commonness doesn't take away from it's alluring qualities. Because the white orchid isn't a stranger in any setting, this is a good source to draw inspiration for home design in any region.

A white orchid faux linen sheer captures the essential texture and softness of the orchids petals. These flowers are bright, and so too are these slightly translucent drapes, which even echo a blossoming orchid in their delicate folds.

You can design the whole room around this kind of window treatment by employing complementary patterns and soft colors and off whites throughout the space. In a dining room, use a similar white linen table cloth to tie the design together. On the walls, use a wallpaper with a floral pattern with whites and light greens that harken to the stem and petals of the flower, and use white molding on the top and bottom of the wall to play off of the white window treatments.

This aesthetic can be completed by using a white orchid as a centerpiece on a dining room table, or placing plants on tabletops throughout the room.
