As much as we’ve loved the painted feather decorations that adorned the Petunia Boutique and our seaside HQ this summer, DeNai recently decided to refresh the design of our creative space for the new season. And leave it to Petunia Pickle Bottom’s fashionable Founder & Designer (and Crafter-in-Chief) to kick off the fall “back to school” season with decorations torn straight from the pages of texts.
