Friday Finds 6.27

This week has been a particularly rainy one, and I’ve gotten a little antsy looking out my windows waiting for the weather to perk up. I’m the type of person who always has to be busy with something, and so I tried my luck with some of these awesome DIY projects this week (although mine didn’t turn out nearly as well):

With the Fourth of July coming up, I wanted to make something festive that I wouldn’t throw away as soon as the day was done. This Fourth of July Clothespin Wreath from Washi Tape Crafts is cute enough to leave up all year round.

 

I love flowers, and couldn’t pass up an opportunity to try this Gold Fruit Bowl DIY by House of Earnest. While gold paint creates a chic look, bright colors make the whole ensemble even more eye-catching.

 

 

As the days get (hopefully) more sunny, outdoor activities will become a regular routine. I love the playful look of this Painter’s Canvas Picnic Blanket I found on A Subtle Revelry’s blog. Such a cute and easy way to enjoy an afternoon laying on the grass.

 

 

I can’t wait to try out this gallery wall I spotted on The Proper Pinwheel. The random but unified collection of frames makes the room visually interesting but not overwhelming or distracting.

 

 

And while I like accessorizing rooms with textures, colors, and funky pieces, I’m starting to realize an appreciation for more minimalist, natural-looking decoration. These easy ways to decorate with tree branches on A Hammer and Heels brings a simplistic and earthy vibe to any room in the house.

favorite modern botanical art sources

I covet gallery-style art displays–do you? They look so casual cool and say so much about a person. In my head, a woman with pretty botanical and floral prints on her wall is slightly traditional, feminine, maybe a little scientific, and definitely up on trends because nothing could be hotter right now.

Here are 10 sources for botanical and floral art I’ve been browsing (and loving) lately.

1: Flowers V by Helen Covensky
2: Leaves print by Leah Duncan
3: Going Where the Wind Blows by Budi Satria Kwan
4: Reindeer by Frances Ooi
5: Morning Frost Meadow By Anna Emilia Laitinen
6: Dandelion print by Double Merrick
7: Flowers for Gabriella by Lulie Wallace
8: Green Poppy Pods by LupenGrainne
9: Autumn Fern by unitedthread
10: Wild Fennel by Jean Lurssen
