Decorating with Cut Flowers and Branches
My friend Kris has a wonderful knack for creating effortlessly beautiful vignettes in her home using fresh flowers from her garden and branches she’s gathered on hikes.
The fresh or dried botanicals adorn every room in her house and give a glimpse of her romantic interior design aesthetic.
Kris’s home is a curation of objects inspired from her time living in Naples, Italy, a study of fine art and art history, a love of antiques and a penchant for displaying quirky collections of all sorts of objects like black-and-white family photographs, vintage figurines, her kids’ pottery creations, bottles of varying shapes and sizes, even playful items like plastic mermaids, Playboy barware, and dolls, both creepy and cute.
Here, Kris cleverly displays the mushrooms she found attached to tree stumps in the forest.
Early in the morning, the sun streams through the window in her bathroom, giving an ethereal quality to her dried leaf and fresh daisy arrangement.
Kris shows how you can easily incorporate elements of nature (either live plants or cut branches and sticks) on any shelf or ledge in your home, seamlessly blending them in with your personal style.
