Diane James Home flowers

It would really be more appropriate to title this post “Things and People We Love.” Because as much as we love the beautiful shop, Diane James Home, and The Buzz Blog that is connected to it, we love it’s owners and authors, twins Carolyn and Cynthia, even more!

They were some of our very first blog friends when we started Design Chic, have been an endless source of support and inspiration, and even brought gorgeous blue hydrangeas for everyone at the beyond beautiful blogger luncheon our fabulous friend Tina from The Enchanted Home hosted for the launch of my novel Slightly South of Simple last year. (If you’ve read it, you’ll get why those flowers were so important!)

You know we love flowers. Love and adore them and can’t get enough of them. And we know that you do too.

But, sometimes it has been freezing cold for what seems like forever (like now!), or you’re allergic to flowers or you hate the mess the make or you can’t keep them alive for longer than a half hour…

But that’s where sweet Cynthia and Carolyn and their beautiful line for Diane James Home come in.

Because they have an endless variety of gorgeous blooms that won’t die, won’t need watering… And here’s the clincher: They look exactly like the real thing. 

It’s quite astonishing, actually.

Their new Spring Watercolors Collection might be their most beautiful yet. And we don’t know about you, but, if we are going to make it until spring actually arrives, we are going to need some beautiful blooms in our lives!

Not only are they stunning for your own home–indoors or out–but Diane James Home florals make the perfect gift. We’re loving them for the upcoming wedding season. Because, honestly, the bride is probably getting tired of dinner plates.

From topiaries to bouquets, greenery to orchids that you don’t have to get that ice cube trick right to keep alive, these ladies have it all. (And, yes, you can have it delivered! We know. Life is good!)

And, did we mention? They’re gorgeous twins! We don’t know about you, but these beautiful blooms have made us feel oh so inspired. What about you?
