This spot is right by my front door. I love the idea of having a statement wall right when you walk into the house. If you know me, then you know I always have plenty of empty picture frames and chairs...just ridiculous amount of chairs. I stapled chicken wire to my frames to use as a base for my installation. Actually what I really wanted was everything to feel like a painting but with real flowers in them.
It just feels like spring every time you look at it, doesn't it? I love the fact that they will still look good when the flowers become dry flowers and if I want to, I can just simply add new flowers to the frame. Oh and how gorgeous are these chairs? They are antique French Louis XV dinning chairs. I bought a pair at my favorite antique shop, The Trading Post. Then as I was leaving she made me take two more that needed re caning. I am probably going to upholster them then...I am afraid to say this... paint the frame. I always feel guilty painting real antique but I feel like these ladies need it? Now back to my floral installations.
I love having plants and flowers all over the house.
This project reminded me how important it is to just play. I feel like as children we can just play and use our imagination without boundaries. We didn't care about trends or labels. I realized I always want to hold onto that child like wonder. I want to just play. I hope this post brings a little more sunshine and spring to your day.
