The Prettiest Flower This Winter Solstice

By | December 14, 2018

I do love to fill my home with fresh flowers at this time of the year – how about you? White hyacinths and eucalyptus have always been a firm favourite. But this year another bloom has caught my eye – and it’s selling out across Sweden! The Amaryllis ‘Rilona’ is a large apricot-salmon flower which looks equally beautiful on its own or mixed with chrysanthemums, eucalyptus or deep burgundy amaryllis   – and of course, the shade is perfectly on trend! Here is some inspiration from some of my favourite Swedish flower fairies!

So pretty, don’t you think? I love the salmon-apricot hue!

What flowers do you like to fill your home with at this time of the year?

It’s Friday friends – yaaaay! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? It’s snowing here in Malmö today, but we’re still hoping to make it up the coast to a ‘glögg mingel’ (christmas drinks party)  tomorrow!

If you’re planning on decorating your home this weekend, here are some inspiring links I think you might like:
