As we enter into a new season, Natalie and I wanted to teach a class together about something that we truly believe in – that “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” As we progress in life, it’s not about the quantity of items we have, it’s about the quality. I’ve mentioned on more than one occasion that the meaning and purpose behind the pieces in your home is something I whole heartedly believe in when designing a home.
At the end of March, Natalie Bowen, Jessie Black, Fullosophie and I will be teaching you how to incorporate and understand the foundations of beautiful bedroom design and styling via: florals, textiles, textures, and design. We’ll be focusing on the differences in materials and textures, incorporating seasonal flowers and colors, and the do’s and don’ts of styling bookshelves, tabletops, and your bed. Although this is focusing on the bedroom, you can use these tips for any part of your home.
Details are at the end of this month’s stunning post that Natalie created for you. I’m madly in love with the texture of this arrangement!
Flowers used in this arrangement:
- Liberstar Tulips
- Snow drops
I’ve never seen these checkerboard flowers. What are they?
They are called fritillaria and they are one of my favorite springtime blooms. They feel like they are the perfect fairy flower with their curved stems and small bell flowers.
I’ve seen the Acacia before but doesn’t it usually wilt?
This is a stem I use when I don’t need the branch to last more than a few days. The tips wilt immediately, so I snip of the ends and the rest of the branch lasts much longer.
How does “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” play a role in your life?
With flowers I always suggest getting king lasting flowers for your own home. This way your money is well spent and you will enjoy them for as long as possible. Then, sometimes splurge on the perfect single bloom and out it on your desk or next to your bedside where you will see it often.
If you live in the Bay Area we’d love to see you at this workshop – pop over to Fullosophie for more information. It’s going to be an evening filled with loads of inspiration!
