So how to we spend these last few weeks of cruel winter? By pretending it's already Spring of course! What better way to celebrate Spring than with a healthy dose of florals.
|I took this picture in my garden on Feb 28th 2012. It's hard to believe, really. No chance there's anything blooming in four days this year.|
|This was taken last year on March 24th. I think that's a bit more realistic time frame.|
|I love love love this dress. It's vibrant and fun and looks like it would be super easy to wear.|
|I see these charming vintage paintings all the time at the flea market for under $20. You could easily put together a whole gallery wall of them like this.|
|The perfect dress to wear to a wedding or bridal shower!|
|I thought long and hard about buying this bedspread from Urban Outfitters. I eventually decided it would be too much pattern in the master bedroom. It's beautiful though.|
|This vintage velvet settee that I picked up off craigslist last year dictates the color scheme in our master bedroom. It is the most wonderful place in the world to sit with a good book and a glass of wine.|
|Here's another great gallery wall of vintage flower paintings. I really like this look.|
|This Gucci scarf is spectacular. It's on my wish list, but at $796, it will remain on my wish list indefinitely.|
|Not for the faint of heart, combining florals and patterns can be tricky, but this room is flawlessly executed.|
|Hey Mom, when you finally finish my crewel work bed spread (how's that going by the way?), I want you to make me a pair of crewel work throw pillows just like these. Thanks!!|
|This bergere is sooooo pretty. It would be grand in a rustic neutral room as the only pop of color and pattern.|
|Are you a mid/mod type? You can still do florals for Spring! Look how welcoming and fun this space is!|
|Lovely antique hooked rug that I snagged at the flea market for $5. LOL can't wait for the flea market to start again!|
|Beautiful 19th century theorem painting my parents gave me for Christmas last year. I loved it so much that I hung it up before the bedroom walls were even painted!|
|Another flea market painting. I bought this from the artists grandson as I recall. I think it was around $10.|
I know I've showed it to you before but it's one of my very very favorite pieces of art.
|Pretty vases adorned with yellow iris and butterflies. This is in my kitchen now.|
|I picked this painting up while antiquing with my mom just before christmas. It's on the mantel now.|
|I painted these a few winters ago when I was really longing for Spring. I can't find them now. hmmmm.|
|Ugh, I just love this space. The floors, radiator cover, big high windows and arched ceiling! |
And of course, the sofa is stunning.
|And another beautiful and quite cheeky sofa. The space is beautiful, though the placement of the chandelier for the photo shoot is beyond absurd.|
