For the Love of Lotus

This weekend I bought a stunning set of lotus nesting bowls for my best friend’s bridal shower gift from Boston’s Koo de Kir. I am obsessed, as it’s as stunning for serving as it is sitting on a table unused. The perfect shower gift, I might even declare!
I am quite enamored with the lotus blossom as a symbol. It means different things to different religions and parts of the world but the interpretation I like is rebirth, strength of spirit and beauty through life’s hardships. Who can’t identify with that in some way? There are lotus blossoms blooming everywhere, from fashion to hoem decor- here are a few examples:

Check out this amazing lotus themed line by Satya Jewelry (this first necklace makes me weak in the knees as it’s my birthstone, the lotus AND the goddess Lakshmi (of prosperity and abundance). Sign me up!


These cuffs are equally amazing, no?


I just put this lotus flower capiz shell light in a project of mine and I’m pretty sure I need to order one for myself ASAP.

Or how about Farrow and Ball’s Lotus wallcovering? It’s a new favorite in my book!

Amy Butler has a whole line of lotus print fabrics as well, and they are all VERY affordable!

These lotus pendants are a long time favorite of mine- perhaps in a bathroom hanging on the sides of a mirror in place of sconces?


I’m off to the Cape for said bridal shower (the bowls)- have a great day!
