I’m currently in the throes of flat selling, and in an attempt to woe prospective buyers I’ve been arranging fresh flowers here, there and everywhere around my flat. It’s hardly a chore as I love flowers and get to enjoy them too, but it is proving quite an expensive new habit…
Flowers are having a bit of a moment, and not just at Maison Elle Tea. In the fashion world, I blame Erdem and his beautiful print dresses for a surge in the desire for all things flowery. I’ve always been more of a stripes and block colours kind of girl but even I just found myself buying a very flowery top from Topshop, which has more than a nod to the Erdem digital flower prints.
In the world of stationery, again, I blame Mr Erdem for those deliciously desirable notebooks he designed for Smythson last year. That SamCam sure knows a trend when she sees one.
In the outdoors world I thank, rather than blame, the onset of Spring for the recent appearance of beautiful blossom. Nothing, not even fashion, can beat the natural blossom tree.
And just to go completely over-board, here’s a double-flower combo.
p.s. One more lovely flowery thing, just because!
