In many parts of the country, January is a bleak affair, a time when all that is green and colorful has well and truly disappeared and won’t be returning until May at the earliest.

Luckily, we all live in Louisiana, where the flower gods are kind enough to send us the camellia to sustain us until spring. Taking our cue from nature, this month we bring you a shot of pure saturated color. Whether you choose cut flowers such as the ones shown here from Urban Earth Design Studios or something more permanent such as the coffee table from Ray Langley Interiors, go ahead and revitalize your home with dazzling, effulgent color!
