Bare walls have plenty of advantages: ample surface area for finger painting, an absence of disapproving Churchill posters, and no mirrors reminding you that your hair is on fire. Strike a balance between starkness and elegance with today’s Groupon: for $40, you get $80 worth of custom wreaths and home accents from Decor d’Esprit online.
Decor d'Esprit's owners and artists Rosanna Jennings and Diana Whitaker confect ornate, elegant home décor. Elaborate wine bags ($25+) combine cascading beads and tassels with a translucent panel that reveals the bottle’s label and keeps the gift giver from taking a premature sip. Front doors proudly trumpet holidays or general joie de vivre with the Fan Dance wreath, which sets a tiny paper fan and dangling birdcage amid peacock feathers, sunflowers, and other greenery ($185). Wildflowers trail and a lingering golden butterfly lights on a vibrant blue bowl to form a springtime centerpiece ($140), and lengths of festive garland ($200) adorn mantles, banisters, and sleeping relatives at Christmastime. Rosanna and Diana nestle a crystal angel into each of their designs to counteract the doorknob devils that constantly urge wreaths to hurl pinecones at the neighbors. Each creation sparks to life with a detailed order form that specifies the desired type and size of product, color scheme, and medley of whimsical trappings prior to receiving a quote. Delivery throughout the greater Richmond area is complimentary, while shipping costs outside the area will be included in the quoted price.
