Fresh New Year!

Share Button

Happy 2013! Here’s to a brand-spanking new year – fresh, clean, and bright. Today’s subject fits perfectly with those qualities, while also nodding to the past – making old new again.

I would be thrilled to surround myself with plants; they’re such easy ways to brighten up any room, and they’re great as focal points or conversation pieces. The theme and mood of a space can be quickly set with a thoughtfully-considered plant, accents, and container.

For the new year, I’m going for an open, natural, and simple look.

I had a glass cube and a variety of polished river rocks lying around, which were perfect for my DIY (almost too easy to call it DIY!) project.

My favorite local florist is San Francisco Florist at 120 Howard Street. Their extensive, immaculate store is filled with top-quality floral decorations, and their arrangements are among the most artful and tasteful. The flowers are so fresh and pristine, I often wonder if they could be artificial(!) (however, they are not).

The vast majority of their products are living, but they also have a small rotation of well-made artificial greenery. When I found a jade-green succulent, I knew that it was exactly what I wanted. I also purchased a spongy handful of delicate moss to nestle around the succulent.

A few minutes later, I had my finished centerpiece!

I love it; it’s refreshing and simple, and my mind calms whenever I look at it. And best of all, it’s completely low-maintenance! All in all, the perfect start to the new year.

Wishing for happiness and serenity in 2013 for all of you.

Cheers,
lauriel
