Crazy for Cotton
By Lauren Kathryn on Nov 16, 2011 at 10:30 pm in Vintage, Rustic, Classic, DIY/Handmade and Whimsical/Playful
The use of raw cotton in lieu of traditional flowers, or in combination with traditional flowers, is becoming quite the trend in floral design, and it’s easy to see why. Adaptable to any season (mixed with cool blues and wheat hues, it has an earthy, wintry feel, while paired with baby pinks and pastel stripes, it radiates a light, summery air), cotton is versatile and can fit into a wide range of looks, from rustic and natural to whimsically elegant. Plus, it’s wooly, cloud-like fluffiness is just plain pretty. Take a look all the ways in which you make use of this fabulous fiber.
