[My grainy shot of magnolia leaves.]
When Janet was in town she commented on how green everything is and she captured this abundant leafiness in her photographs. In fact, more of her take on 1920s Swan House can now be seen here. I was inspired to bring in someone else's discarded magnolia branches; we'll see if one blooms this weekend.
Of course, New Orleans-based painter Shelley Hesse is all about flora and fauna. I was thrilled to notice that her creative collaboration with Anthropologie has continued into 2011. Click here to see the embroidered peacock pillow and other wares inspired by her work. An example from the 2010 collection can be found here.
The Iridescent Plumage Pillow aka "peacock" is linen, cotton, and jute. Images via Anthropologie.
