I've always loved the look of sunflowers against the side of a barn or as a border along the edge of a garden but I've never cared for them in the house. I think it's the color combo- yellow and brown- just not a big fan...until now! Isn't it funny how our preferences change. I've never liked orange either, yet lately, I can't get enough of it!
The nature center by our house has the Golden Harvest Festival every year so there have been a lot of signs around and they all have sunflowers on them- that's what got me to thinking about them.

Look how fresh and beautiful these sunflowers look in a blue and white ginger jar.
I'm finding that I really like them with wood tones- I think it cools the colors down a bit.
yet they can look so summery when displayed with bright colors.
This sunflower chair from Neiman Marcus definitely has my interest peaked!
Create a cute "country style" display...
...or something a bit more modern?
Another sunflower chair, this one by ex-Nascar racer turned interior designer, Shawna Robinson.
I could do an entire post on her fun chair designs (actually, maybe I will)!
This image and the next one have the sunflowers looking ethereal and artsy. So pretty- I can't believe I'm saying that about sunflowers!
One more sunflower chair- who knew there were so many chairs paying homage to the sunflower!
I mentioned that I love them in combination with wood tones, well, they are equally gorgeous with blue.
Don't you agree?

Have you had enough? I tried to choose images that were atypical. Of course, there are so many beautiful door wreaths and fall bouquets that include sunflowers but we know what those look like.
Do you decorate with sunflowers or feel inspired to?
