tuesday twinsday … in the garden

The bond between multiple birth children is absolutely incredible, and this photo captures it in such a special way.  What love there is between these beautiful girls!    Perhaps mom can remind them of this moment when they are fighting … probably every five or so minutes.  

Of course, I also love classic blue and white … so — when it comes to their sweet dresses — hello, timeless!

But did you know that blue and white floral doesn’t have to be overly sweet?  This moody blue room prominently features a oversized blue and white floral print on the side chairs … but, in my opinion, the overall look veers almost modern.   The funky bare bulb, the tone-on-tone color scheme, and the graphic patterns on the roman shade and the bolster pillow combine to make this room somehow cozy and spare at the same time.

And did you notice that the floral patterns on the chairs don’t match?  Let’s call them fraternal twins.  Please tell me you know that boy/girl twins cannot be identical.  Shouldn’t that be obvious enough??  

Would you use a floral print in a modern setting?

  1. What a fun space! Love the starkness of the room but the fabrics add a little oomph to the room! Agree with you Traci!
