the power of the flower.


kara rosenlund.

never underestimate the power of flowers to brighten up a room. lacking color, your imagination feeling low? hit the farmer’s or flower market for some fresh blooms and i think you’ll discover instant gratification, and inspiration. flowers just bring the outdoors in, giving new life to rooms. especially pink petals for some reason — peonies, dahlias, camillias — they all have stunning blooms and even when they began to decay, there’s still something lovely about them. here’s what i mean.

  2. Flowers really are the finishing touch to a room in my opinion. Even my college dorm had flowers in it constantly just to give my roommate and I some happiness and inspirations–much needed in a cold, rainy city like Pittsburgh!

    Gorgeous photos.. Dahlias and ranunculus are some of my favorite! Flowers do really alter the energy of a space in such a lovely way. :)

    Read The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. The title says it all. Flowers fascinate and captivate me in a whole new way after reading this novel.

    oh man, I’ve been obsessed with flowers recently. I’ve been walking around the city and making wildflower bouquets to fill my house with.

    I really love that wild bouquet from Blanca’s house. The contrast between the delicate flowers and the tarnished sink is just too good.
