Ramblings on Simplicity and Flowers

I'm typically of a more is more girl when I'm designing. Love a nice mix of patterns. I have no qualms about diving head first into a party that is decorated with stripes and dots AND plaid! I decorated my house not to long after an inspiring trip to Monet's home in Giverny. Soaking in his use of pattern on pattern was a mind alternating experience for me.

But lately I have to admit that I am finding something so beautiful and soothing in subtly and simplicity. Last month Kara posted this lovely birthday party...

I love that your eye knows exactly where to go and can easily absorb and savor every detail. And this got me thinking about... flowers. How elegant a single stem in a vase or jar can be.

 And although these are not single stems, I have become slightly obsessed with how gorgeous these blooms in apothecary jars look... (it's as through the owner is trying to capture their beauty.)

Which leads me to this...

I'll be the first to admit that there is a lot going on here. A lot of texture. A lovely bit of organized choas. But I love the flowers in the bottles suspended above the table and that your eye gently ping pongs back and forth from the flowers over head to the beautiful rustic arrangement on the table.

 I guess I can never stray too far from my more is more roots!
