Ruffled eucalyptus

Today I had coffee with my friend Loi who owns Tone on Tone, my favorite antique store in Bethesda.  Beautiful Swedish painted furniture mixed with pieces from Europe and fabulous accessories.   It is the most wonderful store to visit and very inspiring. 

I made this arrangement to take over - a tower of overlapping eucalyptus leaves inserted horizontally into a block of foam all the way to the top.    I put some poppy pods, nigella pods in between some of the layers on the sides and a nosegay of Vivienne white spray roses on the top.

I am happy to report that both Loi and his partner Tom, liked this piece and felt like it suited their aesthetic.  Since I a huge fan of theirs, I was thrilled.
