still loving :: flowering branches...



While peeking around the flower shop today I noticed a beautiful bunch of fine branches, with the tiniest lavender-coloured buds... flowering branches like this really are one of my favourites. There's something about their uncontrolled direction that I just love... perfectly suited for a large vase near your front door (or a rubber wellie or two)...

Gorgeous photos!

I love branches, tossed into something like this – so easy and chic. Actually, I love the boots as a door stopper. Fill with a few rocks + these branches, and it's perfect...lovely inspiration as always, Daniella :)

Great photos, I love the elegance of the first one and the unexpected casual-ness of the second.

One of my favorite things to decorate with are branches. They make a room more elegant. It's a simple touch that I truly love.

Thanks for the inspiration - I need to go our and my some new branches :)

I love using the Hunter boots as a small "vase." It gives that gardening feel to your home... what a cool idea!

Totally my favorites. As much as I love summer and flowers in full bloom, it bums me out when branches stop being available in Chicago...

I 100% agree. Every interior design show I've gone to lately has flowering branches on display. So beautiful...
