“Wow” was the first thing out of our mouths when we came across this article on Remodelista. In her home and studio outside of Paris, Artist Clare Basler brings giant specimens of the outdoors in each day. Branches of trees arc over her easel, vines trail from her windows and the bottlebrush stalks of flowers stand to attention in glass cylinders throughout her home and become the subjects of her paintings. Our mind immediately jumped to parties, (naturally), and how magical a few leafy tree branches would be at an intimate rehearsal dinner, an engagement soirée, or to add a little whimsy to a ceremony site. It’s inspiration enough to make us (almost) look forward to pruning our yards back this fall!
