DIY I'd Like to Try: Pressed Leaves

Sarah Jessica Parker's home in Bridgehampton (as seen in Elle Decor here and pinned here) is as fabulous as one might expect. And would you believe those white tables are Ikea Lack side tables lacquered in white?! Start believing. I'm especially loving the pressed leaves on the walls: Screen Shot 2016-04-05 at 12.15.07 AM

A great DIY opportunity! I know I can be a little Martha Stewart-esque with my DIYs ("It's so simple, really..."), but this one really is so simple. There are tons of options for configuring the leaves, like this great image from Domino (pinned here):

Aren't they gorgeous? If they're pressed between the pages of heavy books (with wax paper to protect the pages!), the color will be mostly preserved and they can then be arranged in gorgeous patterns, like this image from Interiors Addict (pinned here):

The leaves could be framed in glass-on-glass (as shown above) or with a background--I love crisp white or kraft paper and a black or wood frame. Or skip the frame altogether, like in this photo from Country Living (pinned here):

The options are endless! And it's a quick and thrifty DIY to fill up the walls. Win-win :)
