I have been sprinkling in some
here in my home the last couple of weeks.
I was in the mood this year for some really easy
towards the holiday
using fresh flowers
is always my first choice.
For my dining table
I used my block candle holder
replacing the candles with mini Kalanchoe plants
in the palest of pinks.
Because I used tiny plants
instead of cut flowers
this arrangement will last least a month
with the most minimal of care.
I used the same mini Kalanchoes
for my centerpiece in my living room
where I place the plants in the tiniest of terra-cotta pots.
To make the centerpiece
I simply used a large wooden box tray
with my collection of well used candles.
To finish off the arrangement
I simply added in dry white rice.
This makes for a perfect centerpiece
for a winter to spring transition.
My favorite Valentine decor piece
that I use in different places
each year is my
soft sculpture heart
that I made out of
aluminum tubing and yards and yards of tulle
For me I love the aesthetic of one bold Valentine piece
backed up with an array of pink flowers and plants.
Not only do I love how it looks
but in makes for the simplest of
in and out
I simply replace the heart with more pink flowers
this decor takes me right into spring
when I just add in other varieties and colors of spring flowers.
I am so enjoying keeping everything else in my decor
neutral this year.
I am loving the mixture of textures in monotones.
The monotone textures play out
throughout my decor
on both soft and hard surfaces
letting the introductions of
have center stage.
Dropping in flowers in functional spaces
to artful vignettes.
For my exterior rooms
I use the same principals.
But in the courtyard
all the 'walls'
are made of the live green variety
so dropping a little live color
can make a large statement
backed by the inclusion
of just a couple
I am ever so happy this season
with my quick and simple
that will take me right into spring.
Fluffing my space
is just another way
I choose to crown myself
it makes my heart ever so happy to see!
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
