MONDAY’S PRETTY THINGS :: Greens in Florals and Foliage

Well, it’s not Monday; but these are still pretty things, so let’s just roll with it. :)

Justina Blakeney kitchen tour on the Kitchn

First of all, I have to talk about blogger Justina Blakeney‘s kitchen.  Isn’t it real?  I can not get over how welcoming it is! I feel like Justina would make a really good best friend, because it seems like the kind of kitchen a best friend would have. Seriously, you need to go see the whole tour here.

While I’m on a green kick…

Mel Kendrick Walnut Wood Sculpture

It’s a walnut sculpture by Mel Kendrick, but reminds of scrap wood you’d find in a great-grandpa’s workshop. I like that.

Daughters by Floral Magic - Florist Shop In Singapore

And this floral shop in Singapore . . . wow. What an amazing space, run by a mother-daughter team. It’s really worth clicking through to see more.

This is so pretty. A self-portrait by Alexis Mire. I love the floral robe.

Lavender via Geraldine Cooks

And finally, lavender, from a favorite Turkish blog, Geraldine Cooks.

These soft greens are a bit of a departure from the usual stark Scandinavian interiors I find so inspiring — yet perfect for tonight.

Calming and peaceful.

Sweet dreams! xo

MONDAY’S PRETTY THINGS :: 6 Examples of Foliage Indoors

Cut flowers or branches, a little houseplant on the edge of the sink, herbs in the kitchen — these little touches really brighten a room, don’t they? I have a few potted flowers in ceramic pots on the stoop outside our front door, but nothing inside right now. I should change that!
