Inspiration: Flowers












Vivacious and vibrant blossoms.

To millions worldwide, flowers are a constant source of inspiration. Whether you are an artist, painting canary yellow tulips on canvas, a fashion designer pinning ornate silky flowers on a wedding gown, a cake designer lining a cake with cherry blossoms, a perfumer concocting a new floral scent, or even creating your own personal arrangement as a greeting in your entryway. I couldn't wait to share this beautiful editorial with you—with so many great elements to appreciate, and such a vast, open space to find refreshing. I could go into great lengths about the vest in the first image by Maison Martin Margiela, the wall tiling, and much more, but would love to know your impressions most of all.

  20. This is absolutely stunning! The vibrant colours simply take me away, so uplifting and gorgeous. The vest in the first photo looks exquisite...so time-consuming and meticulous. I also love the pink chair...actually wish that was in my apartment right now. ;)

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments on my post about changes and time certainly does fly. It's always wonderful to know that there are others like me, who have a special country that means the world to them...upon hearing that France is home for you. I am honoured that you have added me to your blog list, and will be adding you as well! Your blog is utterly beautiful and so inspiring. (my blog name changed, but feel free to leave as is if you wish, goes to the same place either way:)

    I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, thank you for this gorgeous floral inspiration!
