Here I am again! Yesterdays talk of resolutions gave me some wind in my sails and I thought I’d take the chance to share this gorgeous Christmas DIY wreath created by Mark Grehan of The Garden. Shot on site at Doreen Kilfeather’s amazing home, the rustic swag looked right at home on her blue door, even if we were shooting it in September! I’ll look forward to sharing the images of Doreen’s home soon which was a lot of fun to style, or you can get a glimpse at the space in the current issue of Image Interiors (but hurry because it’s not on the shelves for much longer!)
Mark whipped up this beauty in no time using a combination of rosehips, holly, pine cones, dried fennel, birch and rosemary. A lot of the foliage will be readily available to forage at the moment or you can source a few choice pieces from your local florist to give it a polished edge. The colours and textures work so beautifully together and the mix of birch, rosemary and fennel gave it the perfect Christmas fragrance. I’m a huge fan of Mark’s loose and deconstructed style of floristry and I think this is such a pretty twist on the traditional Christmas wreath. Fancy recreating one of these beauties for your own home? Head on over to Image Daily for a step by step guide and let me know how you get on!
Be sure to stop back here soon to see the amazing space that lay just behind that beautiful front door. If you haven’t come across Doreen Kilfeathers photography yet, you’re in for a treat. Her eye is incredible and it was fascinating to see how her innate style of photography carried through to the decor of her Sandymount home, trust me it’s a beauty!
