favorite summer buds

Yesterday was the first day of Summer!  Hooray!  I always think of girly sun dresses, beach days, messy hair, longer days and flowers!  Typically, I have some sort of floral arrangement in my house year round but summertime is when my favorite bud of all is in season, the peony!  A design masterpiece.   Living in the foggiest city on the planet makes it especially important to add a splash of color and joy to the rooms in my home. 

Love the soft pastels!  Brilliant table display with a floral sketch underneath the plant.  Would be a cool centerpiece for an afternoon picnic.  via decor8

Gently placing some buds in a vintage can, {smart} via decor 8.  Also love the contrast of the pink peonies on the blue striped table cloth. via vintage glamorous

Single Gerbera daisies in individual glass vases, so simple but striking!  via decor8   below: Adorable floral arrangement on home office desk of Rhiannon who is a fantastic wedding stylist and blogger.  Images via MadebyGirl

I Love the floral combo of the arrangement {left}, peonies with hints of rosemary, fern and a new one to me Kangaroo Paw.  via design*sponge     Really utilize the entire rainbow with this display, thanks Erika for finding such fun colorful images!

I think my current Fav combo is yellow and slate gray!  I'm adjusting my interior design look with these colors {coming soon} and I'm drawn to everything with that combo.  images via snippet&ink.    I appreciate floral design in so many ways!  It's all about layering until you get it just right... same goes for decorating & accessorizing a home!    {left image}
