For me, these transitional months between winter and spring are all about refreshing and recharging, strolling through my garden and snipping fresh flowers and blossoms off trees. Bright, sprawling houseplants bloom to fill out bare corners and those silks, eyelets and feathery details finally make their returns.
I incorporate houseplants and flowers in the majority of my interiors so spring is an inspiring time. Greenery comes in such a wide array of styles and sizes, so it's easy to find something perfect for any space. I style with Boston ferns at The Collected Home (below) because they're easy to care for and their leafy greens complement so many aesthetics. I draw the eye through a room by varying plants at eye-level, on pedestals or in planters on bar-height tables like these in the entrance of The Collected Home.
Fresh flowers are like luxurious pops of happiness in my home, and I love to inspire the same feeling for my clients. Like The Black Crowes sing in Good Friday, "Luxury is temporary" but for me, that's OK. If it makes you smile, it's worth it.
I try to use flowers in unusual arrangements, like these paper-white bulbs we used for a centerpiece at The Collected Home (left), or using the shop's vintage glass battery jar collection creatively (right).
This unusual vase makes the perfect home for whimsical greenery (left) and this bright iron stone pitcher adds a refreshing element in a vintage vignette (right).
Whatever your garden, grow it! Thank you for stopping in to read and we look forward to seeing your springtime smiles at The Collected Home!
