Nearly Natural Floral Arrangement In Our Refreshed Bedroom

Hi, Friends,
How are you? I hope you are staying well and encouraged. 

Nearly Natural, Faux Flowers, Peach Roses,

If you have been following, you will know that we bought a new place out in the country. It was very brown/yellow/tan. Except for the guest room, I painted the whole house white and I love it more with each visit.  In fact, I love our room out there so much that our room at home looked dingy. It looked yellow. 

It seemed crazy to me that every shade of beige had to be eradicated from the new house but those colors were okay dokey here. It was taunting me. 
Confession time. On Christmas Eve in 2014, I scraped the popcorn from our ceiling. The ceiling needed to be painted after that but painting ceilings is not fun so it didn't happen. 
Our room was white when we bought the house. It's been blue, cream, linen and now it is white once again. 

When the painting urge strikes, there is really no stopping me. 
Walmart came through with an online order by 4:30 one afternoon. When it showed up at the door, Bill said, "I'll sleep in the guest room." He knew that a painting fest would begin and that it would last late into the night. He's a keeper. The color is Glidden High Endurance Plus Flat Interior Paint and Primer. It has great coverage. 

You may think that white is boring. Comments on YouTube videos seem indicate that white is out. 
 Not for me. 
I love pops of color in a white room. Most of my white rooms have a pop of an accent color. I let Bill know that he should be prepared for some pink this month because of Valentine's Day. 

White Mantel, Nearly Natural Faux Rose Arrangement,

Once the mantel was refreshed with Snowbound by Sherwin Williams, the room began to feel like a Paris apartment. Something with a modern shape needed to be added to the vignette on the mantel.  
Nearly Natural contacted me at just the right time. They asked if I'd like to review a faux floral in time for Valentine's Day. I jumped at the chance to order an arrangement of roses and hydrangeas in a soft pink. The square glass vase gives the arrangement a contemporary feel. You can see it here. The cream hydrangeas offer a pretty and muted contrast to the pink roses. They are having a special if you hurry. 

Nearly Natural, Roses, Hydrangeas, White Mantel

My order arrived within a few days. Nearly Natural knows how to package items so that they arrive in pristine condition. I found that true with the Christmas garland and wreath that they sent me last fall.

Nearly Natural Hydrangea And Rose Arrangement

These stems are in resin so that the arrangement looks more realistic. The raffia tie around the bouquet is a darling touch. My florist does that. The roses and the hydrangeas have variation throughout the petals to simulate natural flowers. That's important to me when choosing faux florals. I love these. 

Vintage Mantel, Sherwin Williams Snowbound,

I love how they look with our vintage oil painting. Those apricot and pink tones jump off of the antique canvas.

White paint, White Trim, Faux Fireplace,

These are beautiful.

That is about all for now. Thank you so much for stopping by. 
Thank you, Nearly Natural, for the lovely flowers. 
I hope you stop by and see if they have something pretty for spring or for Valentine's Day .
