Certainly we think of flower arranging as an art, but we've never considered literally treating bouquets as artworks, by framing them as one would frame a painting. It's an interesting way to use the wall as a dynamic space, with an ever-changing palette of color and texture, rather than as a static backdrop for a permanent display. More ways to try this look

• 1 The designers from the. created this pretty white framed vase (spotted on Oh Joy!). We like the way the monochromatic frame doesn't compete with the bright floral display. $100 on their site.
• 2 Here's an easy way to make this a DIY project: Choose a large empty frame, hang a shelf inside it, and fill it with flowers as you see fit. Kind of like an ongoing art installation in your own home. Happy Mundane featured this framed bouquet, from the September issue of Livingetc.
• 3 This framed vase, designed by Ido Baruchin, is a fun deconstructed take on the idea. Don't know why they've displayed it with dead flowers (taking the deconstruction to an extreme?), but we like it anyway. Via MocoLoco.
• 4 Pablo the Object Frame is a nice, simple backdrop for a casual arrangement. It can hang horizontally as well. From Charles & Marie for $65.
• 5 If you don't love the frames, you can always go with wall vases to achieve the same kind of hanging organic display. These bubble vases are from Pottery Barn; read more about them on Apartment Therapy: LA.
