Add a touch of whimsy and floral design to your home this spring ~


We’ve all heard the rhyme “April Showers Bring May Flowers”, bringing to mind the bright and vivid explosion of color in our landscape.  Normally we envision flowers blooming, trees unfurling and whiffs of sweet fragrance in the air…but we have discovered the many ways we infuse our home decor with splashes of floral design or color throughout our living space – indoors!  Flowers aren’t just for the garden anymore!


Whimsical Flowers For Your Home

Hello Springtime! What better way to bring a smile to your guests face than with cheery flowers on your foyer stairs or blooming crab apple cuttings in a pair of winter garden boots? Vintage floral staircase found on Homedit.com; Floral cuttings photo – unknown.



Flowering Trees Provide Natual Bounty for Your Home

Floral Bed and Bath Accents

Transitioning from winter to spring home decor can be as easy as changing out the bed linens! But then again – maybe a vibrant floral wallpaper in the en suite will keep the winter blues away year round! Photo left: housetohome.co.uk; Photo right: theglampad.com



Bright Floral Accents Provide Pops of Color

Tropical Leaves and Bamboo

Not everyone is as bold with their floral inspired choices… In this coastal master retreat we have textiles woven incorporating the beauty of the banana leaf… and in the powder room we see a unique wallpaper using bamboo as it’s inspiration. Photos: Coastal Living
