Snowy Days, Spring Displays!

It may be snowing outside (and it truly is a beautiful snow today . . .the lightly falling snow looks like a backdrop in a movie) but inside The Nest Egg we have brought in a bit of Spring. Take a peek at some of our lovely spring displays featuring new florals, lighting, pillows, accessories and art.

The pairing of this small rose and ranunculus arrangement ($20) is just the thing to pull in a pop of color to coordinate with the handpainted orange and black monarch pillow (new from Studio 773). The green in the arrangement ties in the candlesticks and coffee table book. A little arrangement is an easy way to brighten up an otherwise monotone color palette or brown and gold.

Hydrangea arrangements are terrific because a) they never go out of style b) it's not easy to tell if they're artifical or real c) they can be incorporated into a variety of decorating styles . . .traditional, transitional, country, cottage, beach and more. Granted we think anything would look good atop this chest from Lort's!

An alternative to artificial flowers are our stunning preserved arrangements from Bougainvillea. Created by two of the nicest and most talented men in the South, Bougainvillea arrangements can be customized by color, flower and container to create the perfect piece. They can be used as a focal point in any room and are lovely year round. We also love mixing whimsy with serious like using this applique and embroidered snail shade lamp to create a little lightness and humor in your environment.

We're combining a lot of yellow and green with mercury glass and silver accessories. It's a great update to traditional styles and brings in a little glamour.
