The 15 Dreamiest Florals Ever

by Grace Bonney

When I go to Instagram I’m typically looking for one thing: florals. No matter what time of year it is, I can never get enough fresh floral (real or paper) inspiration. Thankfully (and thanks to you), our #DSFloral hashtag has over 331k photos that run the gamut from fields of hot pink dahlias to handmade paper plants, flowers and fruit that knock my socks off. These days, as the grey of winter sets in, I find myself looking for a bit of a dreamy floral escape. Something that feels like a daydream vacation to a warmer climate where I can pick tufts of wildflowers everywhere I walk. That’s certainly not what our yard looks like right now (hello, Mud Season!), so I chose 15 of my all-time favorites to transport you to a floral wonderland. Enjoy! xo, grace

In my floral daydreams I can sew and embroider like @usedthreads

I can always count on amazing florals (made from paper!) by @woodlucker

I can’t believe this isn’t paper. A real (literally) stunner by @katja_renko

If fresh flowers aren’t an option this time of year, maybe we can eat them instead? @scratchbakeshoproc knows the way to my heart.

I’d like to dive into these like a pile of fresh sheets and towels. Thanks for the inspiration @natashakolenko
