Inspiration from Nature…

Passion and love for nature drives us. It creates a desire to capture and preserve its beauty for the indoor environment. Natural beauty makes us happy and content, and it’s natural for people to want to share those feelings. There is nothing more mesmerizing and relaxing than watching tall grass sway in the wind, or bamboo leaves flutter and dance in the breeze. Clusters of grass and stands of bamboo add motion, color, texture, and depth to exterior landscapes and gardens. Unfortunately, they are one of many plant varieties that do not thrive indoors without sufficient sunlight and daily care.

You can create an indoor environment which conveys that same natural experience and response using artificial botanicals. The tranquil feeling of motion transcends into your indoor environment and reproduces the same happy and relaxing benefits of a natural environment. Wispy artificial grasses and airy silk bamboo plants also add color, texture, and lines to your interior decor. Interior landscaping (plantscaping) has never been easier or more affordable – silk grass and bamboo designs combine so naturally and complement any home or business interior decor.

… and Art

In Part I  and Part II of this blog series, I described how Claude Monet’s Garden in Giverny, France has helped influenced our floral design development. While going through my photos, I came to realize that his garden also helped influence our silk plant design development. Monet is credited as being the leader of the impressionist movement, and in my mind he was also a master landscape designer. In his own words: “My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece.” His plantings of flowers and plants throughout his estate were as much his artistic genius as his paintings.

Monet planted specimen grasses around his flower garden and his famous water lily pond. He planted bamboo along the path around the pond, near the Japanese bridge. It is fascinating to see how he incorporated all the different plants together into such an artistic presentation and used it as his inspiration for painting. My photos of the landscape around the water lily pond are in the slideshow that follows.

At Silkflowers.com, we have been inspired by Monet’s work and hope you will be too. Our silk grass and bamboo designs are a favorite among our customers who want a carefree, easy, and affordable plantscape design. They capture that airy, warm breezy day feeling that puts a smile on your face and joy in your heart.

Be Happy!

One Response to Monet ~ Inspiration from Nature and Art ~ Part III

    Everyone loves artificial flowers and actual flowers. Flowers have been a part of so many customs, that if you didn’t show up to those traditions without flowers, it will be awkward. Flowers have a means of making you feel like your unique, as soon as someone presents you a flower; you promptly feel a sense of warmth that you can’t get by having any other gift.
