KC Inspiration Showcase: Bamboo & Blossoms
With spring right around the corner, I was inspired to bring the outdoors in. While not driven by any photos, I was influenced by the Asian-style framing, textile patterns, and color palette of the patio furniture which I used.
Deep verdant green, fuchsia, and black are the dominant colors used to anchor the setting. These colors highlight some of my favorite items of the design such as the suspended blossoming tree branch, over-scaled bird nests, and the black bamboo lanterns. Combining a real tree branch with artificial flowers renders a convincingly realistic look of a tree in full bloom and serves as a canopy that evokes the sense that one is truly outdoors.
I used grapevines gathered from a local vineyard to construct the three giant bird nests that make a fantastic way to display pillows. The black bamboo lanterns further enhance the Asian theme. Together, the overall design is light and airy and feels as though you are relaxing in an Asian-inspired garden.
