Every season brings with it a medley of colour, texture and treasured inspiration. Transitioning our interiors to reflect nature's story requires an element of intentionality and curiosity— it means taking the time to pick up on the subtleties of our surroundings, so we can translate what makes a season feel so special within the story of our home.
As we embrace the golden days of autumn, the rich colour and rhythmic dance of Pampas grass remind us of our love for Essex county drives— pastures of tall dancing grasses and sunset-filled skies.
Pampas grass—also known as, cortaderia selloana is a beautiful, yet simple addition to any space. Whether real or faux, the fluffy-looking grasses add movement, soft texture, and a relaxing vibe to any space.
