Did I really miss a post yesterday? Looks very much like it. Does sitting in front of the computer in the evening with eyes barely open count as an excuse for not posting? Hmmmm I guess I owe you an extra post.
Well today’s post isn’t exactly home decoration in a strict sense, although this point can very much be debated. I am participating once again in Elodie‘s and Inga‘s monthly column #2flowergirls where everyone can submit their styled version of the month’s chosen flower. This month is all about dahlia and you can see Elodie and Inga take on the fall flower here. I really loved how my June peonies pictures turned out so I used the same dark background technique today. I found some white and pink dahlia on the market and added some foliage as well as those white berries. I don’t know what they are called. I just remember that, as a kid, we used to pick them up and walk on them to hear them pop.
Flowers are one of the easiest way of adding a dash of color and life in any room. Please stay away from fake flowers, just the thought of them gives me goosebumps and believe me, not in a good way. As great as they can sometimes look on pictures (no one can see that they are fake) they are just dreadful in real life and no one is ever going to get me to think otherwise.
Since I had many questions last time about the way I achieved the dark background, I added a “behind the scenes” picture where you can see that my black background is simply a large sheet of black art paper popped up against the mirror on my art deco buffet. I invite you to participate to #2flowergirls and to add colors to your home with fresh cut flowers!
