Instamoments #5 Flower Vignettes

Interior & Design, Styled Space


I’m working on something really exciting at the moment, well exciting for me and hopefully it will be received well by all of you too! To give you a hint, it’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a very long time but until now because it didn’t feel right. I won’t have you hanging on for long but I just want to wait until it’s set up until I reveal it to you!

I’ll leave you today with some flower vignettes from my Instagram feed from the past couple of months. Well most of them are vignettes; sometimes flowers are just so perfect that they needn’t anything else.

You can view more of my Instagram photos @mel_chesneau or click here. I’d love for you to follow me.
