Inspiration

Clients often ask how I am inspired to create the designs that they see featured on my sites and that are created daily. Well, I absolutely adore working with fresh flowers! It is honestly a joy to go into the studio each day and create designs to share with others using hand selected flowers and foliage.

My first source of inspiration is often the materials that are in season. I have deliveries of fresh product brought into the studio at least three times per week and most days, I take the time to “shop the trucks” (think flower markets on wheels with lots and lots of buckets) to find inspiration for the orders I will be filling.

We call this a flower pull. These bunches will soon become part of the daily floral creations. Many thanks to our wholesale rep, Kim from DWF Flint!

 

I also find inspiration in nature. I am constantly picking up fallen branches, pine cones, pieces of bark and even stones to add to designs when I am out on hikes. These treasures from nature can get stored for months until the right order comes in.

Natural_design_mushrooms

Natural sympathy design inspired by natural elements.

My background in the fine arts also supplies me with new ideas for arrangements. Lately, I am enjoying the pastel work of Odilon Redon. I find these floral pieces created in the early 1900’s so refreshing in their simplicity of design.

Pick-me-up Ideas for the Cold Months

Home_diningtable

Protea and foliage designs created for my own dining table.

Let’s face it, the cold weather and shorter days really do have an effect on our mood. Even before I opened my own floral studio, I found that fresh flowers and plants were an easy way to lift my spirits.

Whether you float a few fragrant blooms in a dish or a purchase more dramatic display, flowers at the bedside can set the tone for your entire day and make sleep all the more sweet!

And then there is the power of green plants. Just looking at them makes you feel healthy but there is also the fact that plants can purify the air and add oxygen to your space.
