Who loves adding a pop of color in their homes?
It is fun, but for me, it needs to be the right pop, ya know what I am saying?! I need a pop of color that looks natural and beautiful against my coastal fog walls, soft gray mantel, and wood tone accessories. What could blend in so well with those colors and pop at the same time?
Well, that would be green!
This is my pop of color for my summer mantel. Mother Nature is the best designer in the world. She has the color wheel mastered! So, taking advice from Mother Nature I brought some natural elements into my home. Not only does this freshen up any space, but it also is easy on the checkbook. Just walk out into your backyard and take some clippings of interesting foliage. It can be hostas and ferns….even some weeds from the ditch can create a beautiful display.
I love how these bud vases pop against the brown texture of the wicker and my arrow wall art.
I tried to pick out interesting foliage. Some leaves are curly, some have beautiful curves. A few have dainty leaves and various shades of green.
And, I have to say, these Ainsley bud vases do not disappoint. I was pretty giddy when I opened this happy mail! These vases are offered from a sister company of Wayfair, Birch Lane. The glass is thick and has a green tint to it. I was reminded of vintage glass bottles when I first laid eyes on them. I also love that each bud vase has its own unique character.
They can be grouped together like above or …..
displayed with just one bud vase and a simple fern stem. I also love the fact that you receive 6 of them! Um…yes…SIX OF THEM. If you preferred to display them all separately you could have fresh cut flowers in every room of your home. How is that for versatility?
I hope I inspired you to take a stroll through your backyard or neighborhood and grab some fresh greenery to bring into your home. I love how these simple touches brought in that much needed pop of color for my summer mantel.
Which is your favorite way to display bud vases?
I was compensated by Wayfair for this post. All opinions about bringing the outdoors in, Mother Nature being the master of design, and green as my favorite pop of color are my own.
