Celosia, or cockscomb, is an excellent “everlasting” flower. Harvest the stems of plumed celosia, like ‘Dragon’s Breath’, when the flowers are almost completely open.

The tree shaped the garden and planting palette, while providing the depth and age a new home may lack.
Enter this apartment through a narrow, short hallway; the pale blue walls and geometric rug make a dynamic first impression. The hall opens up into a chic, neutral living room where gold wallpaper in a mix of cool prints make the space anything but basic.
