it's a bitterly cold day in new york but i went to market this morning in the hope of finding some inspiration. what's on my mind, you ask? well, valentine's day of course! here are some snaps from my morning adventure.
ranunculus. they're pretty much available year-round. i love them in a bunch.
anemones. so much personality.
orchids. the perfect gift. i love them potted, with few exceptions...
an exception. these look beautiful arranged.
i really want to create a design with hyacinth, especially the coral one on the right.
the color is amazing in person.
calla lilies. elegant and romantic.
rainbow of tulips
unopened peonies...so worth it
sweet peas. i think they're very flirtatious. you don't need many for impact.
i need, okay, desperately want to reupholster my sofa. i found a fabric i liked a while ago and bookmarked it but couldn't find it 'cause my bookmarks are such a mess. but alas, i found it on maison luxe along with some other options. i really heart the first one. what do you think?
today scotland, along with the rest of the uk, celebrates robert burns' day. robert burns, best known for penning that famous new years' classic auld lang syne, is the national poet of scotland. anyone going to a burns' supper tonight? have some neeps and tatties for me. x p.s. the flower pictured above is thistle, scotland's national emblem.
