Rowan berry trees are not new to me, but they never had an impressive amount of berries where I grew up. In Sweden they have. Some years. Like this one! Our own street has at least 5 of those trees and I decided to do something decorative with the berries. Bringing some nature onto my porch!
I used them as a decorative detail in my refinished display cabinet. It accentuated the richness of the colours Midnight Blue and Renfrew Blue (from Fusion Mineral Paint). It was a strong combination, and I doubted a little, but in the end it turned out really well.
I even threw in some hops, another ‘fruit’ of this lovely end of Summer season.
Rowanberries, and all the other berries that can be found where I live now, inspired me for one of my ‘Swedish Summer stencils’. The berries form a wreath in that stencil, but I had never tried to make a real one! I needed some advice, but since I moved to the second floor of a flower and garden shop I have the expert really close to me!
