sensory overload.

i've always loved fresh flowers. my mum has continuously had fresh flowers in our house, and it always makes me feel homely and settled into a space. her favourites were always the ones that are different and quirky, or that smell so incredibly fragrant that the sweet smell seeps through the whole house. flowers seem to be a sensory overload, the smell is fantastic, they have incredible textures & they look utterly gorgeous. it's this little way of bringing some of nature's true beauty into a room. 
i'm consistently in a battle with myself to keep my room in a state of peace - it's either ocd clean, or looks like a bombsite. but when it is ocd clean, there is nothing that finishes it off more perfectly, than a big beautiful bunch of delicately fragrant flowers.
