Floral Accents

At the heart of cottage style, floral patterns and fresh blooms bring color to the decorating landscape and lighthearted enchantment to our interior spaces.  Whether they are sweetly hand-painted on a headboard, skillfully rendered on canvas, or plucked from the garden, these endearing floral elements live and breathe the essence of cottage charm.

I received these beautiful roses for my birthday and I was inspired to look around at all the floral accents in my home.

In the dining room.

In the kitchen.

On the windows.

In the laundry room.

In the powder room.

From the garden.

And my most recent Goodwill find.

This wonderfully aged platter.

Today I'm celebrating the floral accents in my home For Show Off Your Cottage Monday at The House In The Roses and Todays Thrifty Treasures at Southern Hospitality.
