my latest flower wall…
Posted in interiors, nature, pia's photos, sydney July 31st, 2012 by pia

A while ago I mentioned in this post about our houseboat in Amsterdam that I’d show you my new flower wall installation. Well, here it is. It’s been established for a while now, and evolves with newly deceased blooms, ferns, and whatever catches my eye when I wander…

It’s also become a bit of a sweet memories collection from friends – the peonies are from Kylie who sent a lovely bunch when I was ill last year, the gum nut branches and ferns are from dear Tracey Deep,  and in the first photo at the very top right you can see a bloom made from paper by Natalie.  Although these photos were taken for a shoot many months ago, the wall hasn’t changed much since then, but the books have been moved to a less precarious ‘baby safe’ place. Here’s another corner of my new home…

There are some great flower walls being created out there, I particularly love this one from rubi-jones , found on instagram. Have you tried creating one in your home? If so I’d love to see.

xx

    Wow Pia, it looks so beautiful, and I love that it’s so full of memories. I love flowers and leaves at all their stages, and this is the perfect realisation of this.

    That is just beautiful, Pia. Thank you for sharing these precious corners of your home! I love the light and shade you’ve captured in that last photo, in particular.

    You’ve inspired me to try and create my own flower wall… would you mind telling me what sort of tape you use for adhesion?

    This is such a interesting and fabulous idea! In fact, it was the Instagram posts and mentions from you, Rubi, and Rebecca Beach of @adailysomething that moved me to visit your blog in the first place!! So glad they shared their inspiration.

    I really like this idea, so creative! I was just thinking about walls, displays and how to make them more interesting. This is definitely something to keep in mind. Love the simplicity and beauty of nature in your home.

    Hi Pia, love this wall and all the memories it invokes. I constantly add flower heads to an heirloom bowl and they just seem to dry and look lovely. Bright initially, then as they dry they become soft and muted. I will send you an email:)

    Any ideas for ways to mount and display pinecones? I have a collection from all over, from tiny as thumbnails to over a foot tall.

    hmmm, how would it look as a wall piece, each row a different size – smallest first row, to largest at the bottom? I also like the idea of them in glass jars, organized per size (so you’d need a gorgeous large glass jar for the big ones).
