I am so happy that we have another guest post here in Pink Flower Love. This post was created by Susi, from the respected interior design site - Design Shuffle, that is a social networking site for interior designers, architects, design professionals and enthusiasts who just love interior design. Susi was so kind to create for us a beautiful and very interesting post.
"Sadly, it is the end of peony season; those gorgeous, heady blooms that burst from their green stems this time of year. Feeling nostalgic already we were inspired to write our Dress + Decor guest post as a tribute to this glorious flower. Ranging from pure white with hints of pink to deep magenta, the peony is feminine and glamorous like a beautiful couture dress or a well-executed interior design idea.
The feathers on the bride's dress are gorgeous! Designed by Windy Chandra, the layered skirt makes us think of all those beautiful petals.
Palest blush color in an Edwardian inspired dress is lovely. Adore the high collar.
Peonies are the most sensual flowers. We adore them and know many of you do too. We wish they lasted longer in the garden.
Pantone named Silver Peony one of the top ten colors for Spring 2011 fashion. It's a delicate pinkish silver color that would look lovely on walls as well as waists.
Peony watercolor by Alphonse Mucha would make an incredible wallpaper or fabric. We'd love it behind the headboard in a bedroom or a powder room with a delicate pink ceiling. Peonies inspire many decorating ideas.
Love the dramatic dark background against the pale and deep pink peonies in this wallpaper. Inspired by the Chinese interpretation of the peony, which means riches and honor in Chinese art.
Capturing the range of pale pinks and whites found in our favorite peonies, this bedroom is both feminine and delicate.
Spots of deep peony pink against pale green or cream makes us as happy as the Festivus Maximus peony.
We hope you enjoyed these images. We'll be picking the last of our peonies from the garden and wishing they'd last a little longer. And thinking about where we can hang a peony patterned wallpaper or add a touch of peony print fabric.
