Updating the home for National Flower Week*

'The Rose speaks of love silently, in a language known only to the heart'

Delicate and dainty, the Rose signifies love and all things beautiful. I decorate my kitchen windowsill with them in tall, single vases for a nod to vintage elegance and to give visitors and friends a warm, loving welcome.
National Flower Week is upon us and there is truly no better way to freshen up and bring life into the home than by dusting it with blooms and bunches of various colours and shapes.

'When life gives you lemons, make a Gin & Tonic.'


Chrysanthemums add a sort of wild, rustic couture to my bedroom. Drizzled with soft gypsophila and tall Pussywillow stems and dressed with lemon slices, the vibrant colour palette is a real eye catcher. The square vase also lends itself perfectly to a table centrepiece for a family dinner, we'll talk about nature and our future plans and how good it is to catch up with one another.

'To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.'

Succulents and Cacti are perfect for the minimalist home - and the forgetful gardener. Water them once, or twice, a month and enjoy their laid back vibe.
Bringing a splash of colour to a monochrome bedroom, or adding a touch of life to a copper kitchen. Dress them up with beloved jewellery and reminisce about happy times whenever you cross paths.

 'When in doubt, add Peonies.'

Peonies are, by far, my favourite flower. Slow to bloom, they remind me that some things are worth waiting for - and they look fantastic when finished with Chanel.
Matched with a glass jar candle, these beautiful blooms have added a much needed touch of elegance to my vanity table, but they also work wonderfully dressing a bedside table.
I was delighted to open the somewhat oversized box from Flying Flowers when it was delivered by a young man with an infectious smile, and these amazing peonies have been working their magic on my mood ever since.

Fourwalls have truly inspired me this week, helping me to get my home in order and ready for the summer months. Their ingenious website is stacked full of jaw dropping images of flowers in the most amazing displays. Take a peek, you wont be disapointed.
