This newly remolded master bath achieves a 1920s look with the color palette TriplePoint Design Build selected for the design and special features they added to the room. For example, the beautifully patterned accent window seen behind a white storage cabinet brings a sense of vintage style to the space. A display of sunflowers is another interesting touch.
This small bathroom takes its influence from French Country style. The brilliant blues and sunny yellows that are the staples of the style have been muted to blue-gray and pale yellow. On the blue-gray painted wall shelf, there is a yellow bird figurine, along with small yellow flowers, both of which allude to the rooster figurine and Provence sunflowers that adorn all French Country decor.
This kitchen's crisp, clean white design shows just how much a bit of color can make an impact. Aside from the turquoise chairs and red stools and pillows, the addition of lemons and sunflowers provides a cheery, bright yellow that can be changed out by the day — and those sunny-hued things can be functional, too! In the fall, why not try orange bell peppers paired with chrysanthemums?
Candles and metallic accents complete the design and add a soft romanticism to a tablescape. The mix of florals includes antique green hydrangea, peach Campanella garden rose, peonies, Chocolate Sunflower privet berry, magnolia, pieris, dusty miller, Agonis mixed with dried pods and pheasant feathers. To accent the florals, Forage and Flower used lush green mood moss mounds, a xerographica air plant and candlelight with the mossy green tapers and low gold votives.
For pruning branches over ¾ inches thick, you’re going to need a pair of loppers. These cutting tools come in handy for pruning shrubs, trees, roses, tall perennials with woody stems and even full-size sunflowers. If you’re investing in loppers, select bypass cutting blades (not anvil), and multiply your cutting strength up to three times with Fiskars PowerGear brand. The gears in this cutting design let you cut through branches far beyond your natural strength. Look for loppers with extendable handles to increase your reach. Loppers will handle most cutting jobs, but at some point you may need to expand your tool base to include a pruning saw and, for out-of-reach limbs, a pole saw.
