Winter Solstice

It’s been dark and cold in Melbourne, so we warmed up our winter with a solstice gathering of friends, mulled wine, comfort foods and flowers. We styled with frosty whites and midnight blues.

We wanted to create an intimate, cosy mood, so we shoved Megs’ furniture aside to make space for everyone to sit on blankets and cushions on the floor (note the gold paper protection for Megs’ precious vintage overdyed rug!).

We could’ve gone crazy with our market haul, but we wanted to complement rather than compete with our space and to emphasise the beauty of each variety.
