Well wasn’t that a lovely sunny weekend that just went by? Does this mean Spring has officially started?

As the trees start to blossom and plants start to sprout there’s many ways you can bring the outdoors in to the home. You may have noticed animal heads and horns have been quite popular in the past months within interiors, it’s a very Autumnal feel, with stags featuring heavily in the woodland trend of the darker months we’ve been in. For those however who aren’t as pro-faux taxidermy designs and are looking to brighten up your decor ready for those warmer months then here’s an eco-friendly version which is the perfect way to incorporate Spring flora in to the home…

For those of you who don’t know (don’t worry, we didn’t either), Ikebana is the ancient Japanese art of harmonious floral compositions (duh) and the guys at Paula Studios have taken inspiration from this practice and launched a range of wall trophies called Elkebana.

These wall trophies are an alternative to your usual horns and skulls and are an ideal addition to the home – particularly with the botanical and house plant trend being so prevalent.

It’s a simple idea and one which can be updated to suit the home from season to season, trend to trend.

Elkebana designer Fabio Milito says: “Elkebana is the first trophy for plant lovers. You just need flowers and imagination.”

We love this idea, creating your own sustainable piece of wall art which can be changed to adapt any room setting, very cool.

The Elkebana wall trophies can be purchased and shipped to the UK by going here at Crowdy House.

Looks as though Spring has finally sprung!
