The other day, Shelsy and I went on a walk during our break and we passed a field filled with pretty yellow flowers. I commented on them and when we got closer I realized they were simple yellow daisies. Shelsy then asked if I liked sunflowers. She thinks they are too "country" and we got into a discussion on whether or not you can decorate with them and still maintain a contemporary look. It's tricky, but I believe that you can!

Examples of Tacky Sunflowers

This one isn't so much tacky as it is "too country." Some people are totally into this look. But I would say it's more of an 80's style. Definitely not contemporary.

These however are hideous in every way.
It looks like someone threw up sunflowers in this bathroom.

This almost works. I think it would really only be okay at a B&B or something in a "sunflower" dining room.

Examples of Classy Sunflowers

I love some sunflowers in a blue vase in a kitchen. It reminds me of Italy. How cute are these cupcakes? Too cute to eat!

Sunflowers look super classy when mixed with yellow roses in a boxy blue vase or in a repurposed vintagy looking can.

A Van Gogh painting is always classy on a wall.

This sunflower mirror is perfectly modern!

And a country wedding with sunflowers is superb!
