Although spring has passed here in Charlotte, spring always makes me think of cherry blossoms as they are one of my favorite things. In the past few weeks I have been thinking of them and more frequently noticing the pattern. I wondered if they originated in Japan, how did they become the tree of Washington DC? Interesting to find that the city of Tokyo gave the city of Washington DC 3,000 Cherry Blossom trees in 1912.
The interior decorating world has always taken beautiful natural patterns and integrated them into our homes. The delicate, intricate blossoms are known the world over for their beauty. This room uses a sophisticated light fixture based on the cherry blossom design and a wall decal to add visual interest to this gray room.
I love the delicate images of cherry blossoms featured on these dishes from Details by Lili Diallo
The ever favorite Flowering Quince by Clarence House,
and a less expensive version made by Calico Corners which Caitlin Creer used so nicely on this chair.
How perfect this Christofle Hanami china is for high tea (especially since I have been doing a little post Royal Wedding tracking).
Miles Redd adds life to this hallway by using cherry blossom wallpaper.
I love this pretty Ming Cherry Blossom wallpaper by Schumacher.
Are cherry blossoms one of your favorites too?
