The daily flower

There is nothing I enjoy more than having fresh-cut flowers around my apartment every week. For me, they add that final touch that helps create a cozy home. I try to make Fridays ”Flower Day”. One of my favorite places to find a great selection is the the 28th Street Flower Market in New York. Sandra Bautista, a Spanish designer, is also a big fan of flowers and loves having them on her desk daily — a different one everyday. That's when she decided to create Fresh Flowers, a fun and creative way of satisfying her wish. 

What I think is most interesting about this find, is the unexpected use of material. She decided to print images of beautiful and delicate blooms on pages of newsprint, giving her the option, by simply rolling it, of having a different flower everyday. It's like having your daily newspaper and flower all in one. Just remember, these cuties don't need to be watered!

Very cool idea - especially for those of us with a brown thumb

it WAS a very cool idea. when someone else came up with it first. it won a competition to be on the front cover of every single metro newspaper in the uk last year and it most definitely wasn't this girl that came up with it.
