Blooooming Marvelous…..

Blooming Marvelous

You might be wondering – why on earth am I on a flower-bender when winter is lurking the South? Well, I am in the South, but not in South Africa. And after missing out on a whole summer last year, I am finally getting my summer – but this time round in sunny Georgia, USA!

Before you click to leave, I promise to not go all sugary on you and make you swim through a sea of Laura Ashley prints or feed you cabbage roses until you die…… No, no no! We are talking bad-ass blooms. Blooms that are never meant to be fading wallflowers, or giving a subtle hint that you bleached them by mistake with a load of whites. We are talking in-your-face, bold, blooming beauties. They can hold their own – on a chair, rug, print or scatter cushion. These ones are by no means of the imagination shy – she scream – ‘Look at me!!’.

The earth laughs in flowers.

       Ralph Waldo Emerson

Are you ready to give them a chance in your abode? I bet you that after seeing these ones, you might just be up for the challenge. Let me know if it is coming up flowers on your side……

Flower power on, 

Ax

Embrace it Gently….

So you are not ready to go out in full bloom, but would rather test the water – here are some options to consider. Colourful, but not taking over. I love the bits of colourful surprises in unexpected places like on the back of a chair, a small little slipper chair stealing some flower power limelight or a scatter in full bloom.

You’re not ready to make the commitment flowerwise with a fabric? Well, I’ve got other options for you! How about wall, window or floor treatments? Works for me…..

Ok, and then for those who like to walk on the wild side, it is really a case of go big or go home!  Oversized prints on wall, pattern on pattern, it just keeps getting better.
