Costa Rican Design Style

March 15, 2015

I took a few great design ideas away from my adventure in Costa Rica. I loved their use of bold colors, especially all of the turquoise:




So pretty!

Our tree house lodging was very nice:

Simple and lovely. I really liked the bed coverlet:

I asked the owner if he purchased locally. He laughed and told me he bought them in the US at Ikea! haha I searched online and found similar ones:





Wouldn’t a guest room be beautiful using these coverlets as your starting point?

I also admired the simple flower arrangements in our room:


They use living spider plants, leaving the roots in water instead of dirt:

Then just add any cut flower you want. Here they used beautiful Bird of Paradise flowers:


I decided to make one myself. I found a vase and thought I would use nuts on the bottom:



Nuts float. I did not know that. Smile So I used some sea glass I had:

I just added flowers from another arrangement I had. I bought a spider plant at Lowe’s and separated into pieces:

I was able to make a few different arrangements:

So pretty and easy and it is updating an indoor plant. The spider leaves are a great filler plant for many arrangements. What do you think of the idea?
