Protea inspired home décor

I have taken a liking in proteas, some of you might agree that it was about time! My friend Shahdia assisted with this lovilee Protea inspired home décor inspiration board, and we will be bringing you a Wedding protea inspired board soon! We have tried to keep the inspiration as local as possible so that you could replicate or purchase some of these products more easily.

Protea is both the botanical and English name for this South African flowering plant, sometimes also referred to as sugar bushes. The ones we are most familiar with is the smaller ‘Pink Ice’ protea, the larger ‘King’ proteas and then the variant ‘Pincushions’.Source
