Continuing with our week of style, I arranged the top of my new Bungalow 5 Jacqui chest in a different way. And our accent color is just in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
Today’s look: GARDEN GODDESS
Books, plants, flowers. Simple and au naturel. Can you spot our lazy cat?
Hydrangeas and succulents? A great pair. These adorable birch containers are from Bella Flora. Owner, Melanie, put the succulents in planters using all “green” materials…I’ll show you in our behind-the-scenes shot at the bottom of the post.
STYLE TIP: for visual interest, mix different textures and styles. I love the rough, rustic texture of the succulent planters against the smooth, modern surface of the chest.
I do love green. And I’m obsessed with this 2-tier stand from Tracery. When looking for accessories for this post series, I spotted this stand in Tracery’s shop and knew it would be my anchor piece for this look…they already had it filled with these amazing moss spheres, so it was love at first sight.
Sorry for the slight blur on some of my shots….my camera had a little accident.

INSPIRATION FOR TODAY’S STYLE:
When shopping around, I first fell in love with the rustic vibe of the 2-tier stand from Tracery. And the moss spheres were the exact shade of green I was after. That led me to visiting to Bella Flora for some succulent love. I wanted a bohemian flair, so I knew Bella Flora owner, Melanie, could hook me up.
I noticed Melanie used recycled jars for the interior of her planters. Way better than plastic. I’m a Mason jar addict.
Melanie is clearly a garden goddess herself. Even a green goddess, as she uses mostly natural and recycled materials. She works faster than lightening. While she put together the containers this morning, I could barely shoot her hands because she moved so fast. I think these would make adorable teacher gifts!!
More styling to come next week!!
Dose of Reality: My “week of style” has gone a tad bit slower than I was planning this week, as I had two sick kiddos and a husband out of town. Everything goes into slow-motion when those are the life factors, ha ha. I was grabbing accessories and styling in between my other jobs of mommy nurse, ballet instructor, tutor, chauffeur and dinner chef. Thanks for being patient with me. We’ll continue this discussion next week and I’ll have some more fun looks for you to see!!
