Sunday Bouquet: Color Forecast in Flowers

Earlier this fall I received a surprise delivery from Winston Flowers, compliments of  Valspar Paint. So much better than a press release, Valspar worked with the impeccable Boston florist Winston Flowers to create an arrangement that reflects the paint color trends for 2017. 

Valspar created a collection of 12 paint colors meant to revitalize your home in the coming year. The paint color trends chips, a beautiful mix of dusky, but pretty cool and warm earth and sky/water tones is below. Perhaps Winston Flowers should offer this as a signature arrangement for fall?

Saturday Say It: Broken Gold

When Something Flawed Is Beautiful

Card by Emily McDowell Studio

Kintsugi (“golden joinery”), also known as Kintsukuroi (“golden repair”), is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
