This nursery's closet features built-in partitions for organization and is located next to a wall covered in pink silk flowers.

Visit your local craft store for an array of silk flowers, like garden roses, hydrangeas and magnolias. Scatter the flowers throughout the branches and then top the tree with richly textured ribbon and a few well-placed ornaments for a high-end designer look.

Using real fresh flowers, create a true showstopper of a tree for a Christmas dinner party. You have two options when creating a floral tree: use silk flowers to have it last all season or use fresh flowers to design a dramatic Christmas tree for a special occasion. For this tree, I used non-traditional Christmas colors of pink, burgundy and mauve. Pink roses, pink lilies, white hydrangeas and red roses are inexpensive flowers that are readily available at your local grocery store or florist. Keep the color palette monochromatic and you can’t go wrong with a fresh flower tree.
A reclaimed wood dining table offsets the metallic finish of the chrome chandelier in this transitional dining room. Vases filled with fresh-cut flowers add a natural touch, while silk drapes add a luxurious note.
Bring the lush look of lively floral to your front door with a wreath made of flowers and leaves.

Silk floral is available in a wide variety of styles and materials. For a more authentic look, search for blooms and leaves designed with discoloration that mimics the sun-faded, wind-blown look of real flowers. Mask the foam wreath with burlap bought by the yard, then cut the burlap to size and attach it to the wreath form with hot glue.
This is one of my favorite master bedrooms of all time. It immediately reads as a luxury destination. This was the last space we designed in our original scope of work and I wanted everything we chose to have as much tactile appeal as it did visually. Wherever you land, you’ll sink down into lush velvets, silks, furs or mohair. The color palette is small but soothing, varying from dark chocolates to taupes with dashes of white to keep it crisp and reflect light. We used a faux silk wallcovering in the bedroom’s entry and on the bed wall, but conserved by using a perfect color-matched paint on the walls adjacent. I know it may seem a little indulgent but whenever you can, try adding fresh flowers or an orchid in your bedroom: instant hotel suite status!
