OPEN WEEKEND: Here's How To Turn Your Maltese Apartment Into Every Instagrammer's Wet Dream

One of Malta's foremost florists is meeting all our spring aesthetic goals

Qronfla

Amid the white and yellow jungle that Malta is very quickly becoming, green spaces of relief are getting harder to come by. But that's what makes them even more special.

Turning your Maltese home into the dreamy green homes you see on your Instagram and Pinterest feeds, is actually easier than you'd think.

Here are some tips on how to turn your Maltese apartment into every Instagrammer's wet dream!

1. Repurpose old furniture for that #DIY shot

Got an old cart or bench lying around? Consider a quick paint job and a stylish up-cycle to bring in that extra stylish corner.

Fill the whole thing up with plants and hey presto - #GreenLife

2. Geometry is your friend

Whether it's a custom wall feature, funky stool or a group of small hexagonal concrete flower pots, adding that flair of geometry and (a)symmetry to your home can really help you make the most of any space. It literally gives a place that designer edge to get a super Instagrammable plant shot.

3. Succulents: low-effort, high-reward

Talk about low maintenance!

While you don't need to put in the same amount of effort into succulents as you would for any other plant, that extra pinch of greenery can transform any cold apartment into a stylish pad fit for even the coolest Insta-post.

Add DIY or quirky pots into the equation and you've got Insta opportunities for days.

4. When in doubt, take a vertical approach

Whether it's hanging flower pots, plants that drape down, or high shelves, keeping the Y axis in mind really helps save legroom while also transforming plain walls.

Although this is a very popular approach abroad, it still feels like an unexpected enough touch in Malta that would really help make any room instantly more memorable.

5. Never underestimate the power of flowers

Imagine having the possibility to turn a white slate into a vibrant rainbow that is literally alive. That's the real #FlowerPower.

Big, small, seasonal, evergreen... from tiny flowers to towering plants, greenery goes a hell of a long way when decorating your apartment.

Here's how you can turn those Insta-dreams into Insta-realities

Long regarded as one of the island's foremost florists, the green-thumbed peeps over at Qronfla are hosting an open weekend just in time to spruce up your foliage game this spring.

The Mosta green haven has been providing stunning flower arrangements and home decor items for over 150 years and have even served her majesty Queen Elizabeth during her stay in Malta. So you know you're getting a real royal experience.

No, not that Queen.

Il-Qronfla are offering their best products at discounted prices and have two major attractions at their three-day open weekend

From Friday 26th to Sunday 28th of April, Qronfla in Mosta are opening their doors for a variety of garden-based activities, and here's what you need to look out for!

A Dical House food-tasting event

Catered by the gourmet food shop in Mosta, we're expecting nothing less than amazing from this beautiful pairing. Fancy food makes for a fancy Instagram feed, and of course the chance to relish in the taste explosions!

Bonsai Culture Group collab

An Asian art form that sees small trees being cultivated in a way that mimic full-size trees, bonsai literally translates to "tray planting". A Japanese tradition that dates back over a thousand years, bonsai is 50% contemplative, 50% genius, and 100% beautiful to behold. Bonsai it's not intended for production of food or medicine; it's all about the long-term cultivation and shaping of small trees in container, and it's glorious.

Bonsai is also Instagram gold, so get ready to jump right into that new hobby you've been dying to take up. Why not learn all about the art of Bonsai trees from experts, who are putting on a presentation and talk all about this often overlooked part of Japanese culture?

Qronfla is teaming up with Malta's Bonsai Culture Group to showcase a variety of Bonsai trees and talk about the basic principles of Bonsai, which your Instagram account just can't miss. Sugoi!
