(Flower-Filled) Scenes from My House


I planned a big gala event this weekend which involved many, many lovely dahlia arrangements. So guess who got to bring home some flowers to decorate her home? I broke them up into big and small groupings and scattered them around the house, from the living room coffee table to my kitchen window, so no matter where I am in the house I'm surrounded by beautiful blooms! Here are some of my favorite vignettes...

Gorgeousness, yes?

My bedroom dresser. The funny silver bulldog is a HomeGoods find...


Woof!

One of my jewelry displays... just an Ikea bulletin board covered in muslin...

The office sofa with a glimpse of our fun picture wall... I think the terra cotta roses look gorgeous on the neon yellow drink tray!

The kitchen window is full of playful knicknacks, which makes washing dishes much more pleasant. The turtle flower planter and the hob nail pitcher are flea market finds. And the Dunnies are courtesy of my friend Ingrid's wedding (she wrapped them up as favors!)

Love that silver dog! I need to get better at finding "knick knacks" like that... I never seem to run across anything fun. Jealous you got your hands on an elephant tray from IKEA as well... they were all out when I tried to get one back in Michigan awhile back.

i love all the flowers but perhaps just as much (or even more?) i love all the colours in your home - so happy feeling. you should totally enter a jonathan adler contest if they ever have another one because your home is truly the definition of playful modern design!

Elizabeth - Your home looks lovely! Your home posts are always my favorite. I just love to see your latest collection of pillows and vases and bird knick knacks. I especially enjoy the inclusion of your new Dunny's. They certainly add a little color. Thanks for all the inspiration!!
