FADED BUT BEAUTIFUL
AUGUST 13, 2017
Imagine your white walls as a vast canvas that you can unleash your creativity upon. I love the idea of having some colour and a rustic feel to brighten up the otherwise plain white wall. Use lots of dried flowers, herbs and twigs and let your imagination go wild with your own unique creations. There’s something so beautiful about them — their decayed yet delicate state adds a charming element to a bare wall. They add so much personality to any space in fact.
The next time you receive a floral bouquet, don’t discard it once the blooms and leaves wither. Simply tie the stems with a string and hang them upside down from a wooden hanger or wire mesh that’s nailed onto your wall. You may even dangle them on window sills or above your door. When you get more bouquets, suspend them from a piece of fishing line. Secure this line onto any wall and you’ll get a really nice hanging floral garden albeit a dried one with its own unique charm.
This is the simplest of dècor which takes little time and effort. And the best part is that you can preserve your favourite flowers or herbs for years. If you do tire of them, who’s to stop you from getting new dried-up bouquets of blooms or bunches of herbs and twigs? You’ll have endless fun using various other dècor combinations to recreate any design you fancy.
