It finally feels like spring! The flower buds are popping and so are flowers in design.
To celebrate the season, we’re getting ready to have a Spring Flowers Sale!
You’re the first to get this news, so be sure to check our website in the next few days.
Flowers in design may not be something new but there are so many diverse types and ways to use; especially now, one can’t help but notice, flowers are featured in almost every home decorating magazine, not to mention at the White House state dinner for the Prime Minister of Japan. Just look at that gorgeous floral backdrop!
Clinton Smith, the Editor in Chief for Veranda loves flowers. His editorial in the spring issue reflects on an age gone by when there was an element of taking time to smell the flowers. However with this age in technology, beautiful flower images can be shared in an instant and he remarks how he’d now like to personalize the postings rather than with just a quick hashtag. Hopefully this will be a trend (and not just for flowers) to help appreciate and sincerely feel in the moment that these beautiful flowers bring.
We love when House Beautiful posts their “paint palette” for gorgeous photos. The spring tulip was their tribute in their April issue.
Loving this color, we have a faux Raw Silk wallcovering that can compare.
The joy of floral bouquet can last all year round, especially if made with paper. These gorgeous floral arrangements by artist and author of Exquisite Book of Paper Flowers, Levia Cetti, were also featured in House Beautiful’s spring issue.
Traditional Home also turns their focus to flowers for the present and from the past.
And back again with a similar but new take on floral design with a dark background.
Wait, were we ahead of the petal push when we introduced our Flower Power multi on a black background wallcovering in 2011?
It also comes in 15 other colorways!
Elle Decor gets in on the flower action with bold popping blooms.
And, certainly the current flowers from the Ann Alger Collection Bloom Series are worth noting.
Beautiful painterly images in small to large sizes (48″ x 72″ wide) are worth picking.
Even the New York Times Design Issue in 2013 featured floral design in fashion stemming from artwork.
They also featured hand painted, stylized, floral panels in a botanical pattern.
This reminds us of Kristin Nicholas‘ modern, Matisse-inspired, garden-art panels.
