I did two small bouquets. The first is more sparse and elegant, to work with the purple paint in our living room (which looks much darker in person):
The second is much more vibrant, and went in the kitchen. The kitchen itself, while fantastically spacious, was a bit cold and IKEA-y. I've tried to add a more vintage, homey feel to it using touches of red and aqua, and vintage British kitchenware.
This little arrangement is sitting on a shelf above our '30s white enamel bread bin:
The Horlicks and Ovaltine mixers and the egg beater all came out of one trip to the Portobello Rd. market. Incidentally, both M. and I have become Horlicks aficionados. We drink it literally every day, and our milk consumption has skyrocketed in consequence.
