bits of inspiration – #60.

It would seem that the theme of this week (or at least the last couple days) is hanging floral installations! In a moment of serendipity, I saw today that @leslievilleflea tweeted an article where lifestyle blogger Anne Sage breaks down how to create these whimsical hanging floral pieces. The article suggests creating a hanging installation in place of cut flowers on a table to free up more space for food. I have to say I really love this idea for anyone who has exposed beams in their home. And incidentally, this perfectly reflects back on my last post about floral installation artist Rebecca Louise Law.

Last week, Homes and Gardens published a brief interview with installation artist, Rebecca Louise Law. Rebecca is a London-based artist who creates incredible installation exhibits made mostly from flowers. Since reading the article, I’ve spent some time searching around the internet for photos of her installations and I am in such awe of her talent and the beauty she creates through natural materials.

Snapped this photo yesterday morning on my way to the gym only because I was excited to see it finally getting bright out in the morning (around 6am). I didn’t realize at the time that yesterday was the official last day in the life of this installation art piece that’s been a presence in the city since September of last year. More information (and better photos) of the mural can be found on this Boston Magazine article. I’ll be sad to see it go.
