WORKSHOP NEXT WEEK!
With the weather gets warmer and you start opening all your windows & spending more time outside, I thought I would discuss Styling with Nature and Found Objects.
This will be a ‘show-and-tell’ where I demonstrate styling tricks & tips with nature and found objects. I will show you that the most simple things, found and natural, can come together as a beautiful focal piece or arrangement. Our gorgeous Summer is on its way, embrace the weather by styling your home, your tablesettings and home interiors with what nature and the garden have to offer. Think about the pieces that you have at home and don’t know what to do with, your treasured collections that are boxed away and be inspired to bring them out to show off, creating a home that reflects you and brings the outside in. Imagine choosing tendrils, leafy greens, flowers, branches and anything else that might take your fancy on a visit to markets or stroll around the neighbourhood.
I find my treasures in all sorts of haunts & on jaunts and I encourage guests to bring their own! I will explain how to display and utilise your finds, and how I make decisions whilst styling a mantel, place setting or table centrepiece for example. It is the process of editing and subtracting, arranging and rearranging. Showing guests how to translate what they have and find into decorating and styling ideas will give them ideas that can be used throughout their homes. Questions, discussions & problem pieces/areas are encouraged!
