Short of uprooting a whole tree for your living room, there are other ways to include flowers and plants in the family space in less intrusive ways.
Create print art of close up photographs of nature from your personal collection which lend an intimate touch to any space. Canvas art also lasts a lifetime and a great online platform for personalised art is Printerous. Connect to their website via Instagram where you can choose the photos you wish to print from your gallery. If you’d like something more handmade, some rather inexpensive original pieces of art are available at online stores like Etsy. Barbara Rosenzweig paints images from her garden and this shabby chic watercolour painting of the pink hydrangea in her garden makes a great investment at $44.01.
Designed by Phillippe Stark in 2008, the Mademoiselle Chair is a delicate design with a great punch of colour bringing a brighter update to the home. The Cartagena design in Chinese Floral Blue is reminiscent of the local Peranakan heritage pattern which will be a stellar conversation piece in the living room. The chairs can be purchased at Kartell Store.
Pouf Rather Than Pillow
A pouf is a round embroidered ottoman that make great seating options for a bohemian lounge. These are usually made of bold graphic prints and sturdy textiles or leathers. Sleuth around and you might find some great buys locally at the Arab Street District.
