I like changing things in my working area every couple of days. During this lockdown phase especially, making a bit of change keeps me happy and positive. It is a simple exercise that can bring a smile to your face.
And you can make it work with things available to you easily. Forget the flower market. Look around you and see what greenery you have access to. Maybe there are little periwinkles, money plants, succulents growing somewhere around you, on a balcony or windowsill maybe, that would work. Or use a big green leaf, or even some dried branches to make things interesting.
The desk accessories can double up as vases in this foraged design. A pen stand, a glass, a jig, or a coffee mug maybe? Or, repurpose old toys and collectibles into a holder for a flower or a leaf.
To add colour or make it more fun, stack fruits and poke a leaf into it.
Don’t take it seriously. Keep it light and quirky.
I’ve used a few books as a base to create a little composition that sits on the corner of this table.
Repurposing old toys into miniature flower vases instantly adds to the look of the table.
