Long Lasting Valentines Flora with a Difference

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

As we head into Spring we dream that our gardens will soon, not be waterlogged, and spring into life.  The rich tones of the greens accents the array of flowers displaying all the colours of the rainbow.  Flowers are a seasonal gift for valentines day but, like me, you may have noticed the price hike of your beautifully fragrant blossoms. Perhaps some floral bedspreads maybe of interest instead. At Eat Sleep Live we have a beautiful collection of reclaimed wooden beds.

This beautiful Hummingbird print, brings a moment in time to life.  The delicate design enfolds onto the white canvas drawing your eye to the scene.
