Decor Details: Indoor Winter Florals

Growing up, my mom always had the most beautiful gardens. I remember playing on green manicured lawns bordered by roses. I remember riding my bike down streets lined with purple, pink and white Jacaranda trees, their falling blooms creating a pungent carpet on the ground. I have always loved flowers, they provide elegance, fragrance, color and softness to any interior. They are also the embodiment of my favorite seasons- spring and summer.

When I first dealt with North American winters, I couldn’t stand how dead the world felt without color and perfume and the soft textures that the spring and summer represented. I turned to fresh cut blooms in my apartments to bring that vitality back to me during the dead months.

I also learned that keeping fresh flowers in your home can be pricey if you don’t learn a few tricks of the trade. So here are some tips to keep your home feeling like a spring meadow year round!

TIPS FOR INDOOR FLORALS
1. Buy local- shop for blooms that are native to your region. Buying exotic blooms gets pricey when you take into account that your bouquet or floral arrangement maybe shipped internationally to your local florist, or may be expensive to grow in foreign climates.

2. Try succulents- lillies, roses and daisies are gorgeous, however they are native to spring and summer meaning that they are more expensive in the winter. Try succulents like cactii or crassulaceae which can be planted in gorgeous pots and keep year round

3. Add painkillers- Half a tablet of Asprin added to a vase of freshly cut flowers along with plant food that comes with most bouquets makes the flowers last up to two weeks.

4. Buy late- flowers sold at the end of a day are usually reduced in price simply because they have wilted a little from sitting out all day. For the price of a regular bouquet you can get 3 mixed bouquets, and when you recut the stems at a 45degree angle, add luke warm water plus an asprin, those blooms will perk right back up and be good as new.

5. Add grasses- add grasses to your bouquet to add variety, depth and texture to your arrangement. The bonus is cut stems still carry on the process of osmosis adding the extra benefit of  fresher air in your home, which is a definite bonus during a season when windows and doors are kept shut to keep out the cold!

  • All I want for my birthday this year, is to be a canvas for one of the most gifted artists I have ever come across.

@ace_no_buggy is a giant in his field, and to be tattooed by him, to have something as important as permanent ink done by someone so artistically talented....a nerd can only dream.

Please send all the good vibes & positivity this way.

  • She is evolving.
She is no longer who she used to be.
She has no idea what comes next.
She trusts in her future cause her past has made her strong enough, wise enough and powerful enough to face what comes next.
She is willing to take the leap.
She is a daughter of the stars, written into being with the same language that wove the Universe into being.
She.

  • I am living in a space of abundant gratitude right now. I am grateful for powerful women like @serenawilliams who face constant disrespect, ridicule and attacks on their legacies; yet go to war with class and elegance, even at their most vulnerable.

Today I was reminded that, even at the top of the mountain of your accomplishments, someone will try and cause you to fall, whilst others will learn the cost to rise and respect you even more.

Serena you are a class act, imperfect like all humans, but forever striving for excellence in all ways and that is what makes you the GOAT. Your daughter will be beyond proud of you, years from now when she sees how you rose above the BS, just as proud as we all are of you right now💜.
