A New Wreath for the Home


My latest creation has a shabby but chic, rustic, bohemian feel.  It can give a girly, feminine vibe but I would extend that description to include comfy, healing and calming. Tell me what you think. It's available for purchase on Etsy...click on the link below the image.

If you're like me, you think of the big picture first. Will this piece of home decor fit in the grand scheme of the room's design color-wise and size-wise?  Will it  remain in the background while at the same time complement other hues and even make some of those colors pop?

The linen color of the yarn in this wreath is a warm neutral. The flowers are light ecru and warm pinks. The braiding which wraps around the circular form is a synchronous blend of sages, gold and pinks. Awesome against white, off-white,beige, brown, green, gold, purple, rose and gray walls and doors. What's even more lovely are the shadows that bring out the three-dimensions, making this a textile sculpture. Love!

Makes a great gift for a housewarming, holiday gift giving, birthdays. Or for yourself.
