Today is the big day for the royal wedding. It will be starting a little early for me, but wishing those kids all the best! I look forward to seeing the photos, etc.
Let me go on the record as saying I love weddings. The celebration of the blending of lives and families is so sweet. Weddings are the true exclamation point to a commitment and clearly marks a new beginning.
Aside from this lovely sentiment, what I love the most about weddings are the flowers. How I adore them! Traditionally, hundreds of years ago, they were used to perfume the air and cover up any unpleasant smells from guests. Yes, not so long ago Saturday was bath day, so naturally a good day for a wedding celebration. But I digress.
Wedding flowers set the mood for the celebration, identity key participants (naturally!) and emphasize the color scheme.
As someone who lives in a 150 year old home, I like a vintage feel:
What does this have to do with an interior design blog? The same way flowers emphasize the color scheme of a wedding, flowers can emphasize the color scheme of your home.
The take away from my Saturday morning ramblings: good design (like weddings) involves careful thought and planning. Also, florals can be an excellent source of color inspiration!
