I’ve had the pleasure of working with the amazing Maurice Harris of Bloom & Plume for ages – apart from being one of my very favorite floral designers, he’s also the genius behind the incredible window installations at my Almont store. Ever a source of inspiration and creativity, he was kind enough to walk me through […]
This time of year is one of my favorites – a time to soak up the last bits of summer in anticipation of the cooler months ahead. And though the warmer temps have been hanging around a bit longer than usual (at least in LA), we’re starting to see signs that autumn weather is just around the […]
I can always count on the lovely Rachel Thibodeaux of Finch Floral for arrangements as beautiful as they are unique (her off-the-beaten-path creations including a seasonal herb and vegetable display and fruit-infused arrangement seen here). And for the next in our series on floral arrangements made simple, she was kind enough to walk me through creating a […]
I discovered James’s Daughter Flowers on Instagram, and was immediately taken by her artful, elegant and decidedly romantic arrangements. Founded by Lisa Przystup, whose background as a fashion and beauty writer (she’s currently a beauty contributor for Garance Doré) informs her design and aesthetic, the Brooklyn-based studio is one of my new favorites. For the […]
Sometimes the simplest things really are the best, and when it comes to florals, this definitely applies. For the next in our series on floral arrangements made simple, the lovely Rachel Thibodeaux of Finch Floral – whose off-the-beaten-path displays are some of my favorites – walked us through creating an inspired arrangement with what you have on […]
As I shared yesterday, I was introduced to Fox Fodder Farm when I saw some of founder and creative director Taylor Patterson’s gorgeous creations at The Line in NYC – and fell hard and fast. Equal parts magical and unexpected, the studio’s displays are rooted in both the past and decidedly present tense, and have become a new go-to […]
I was introduced to Fox Fodder Farm, a Brooklyn-based floral and garden design studio, when I saw some of their creations at The Line in NYC – and fell in love. Founded by Taylor Patterson in 2011, the studio is all at once rooted in a desire to move forward and look to the past. This […]
For the next in our Floral Encyclopedia series – a visual guide to some of the more obscure plants and blooms – we were once again joined by the lovely Kristen Caissie of Moon Canyon. For this edition, she incorporated some of her lesser-known favorites into an arrangement with a decidedly tropical feel, perfect for […]
One of my favorite things is time spent in the garden. So when we recently had the opportunity to spend the morning at Silver Lake Farms, a flower farm, full service garden design and maintenance company, and floral design studio, I was over the moon. Founded by grower, instructor and champion of urban agriculture Tara […]
With summer in full bloom, beautiful flowers and fruits are aplenty, and an arrangement that incorporates both seemed only fitting. For this installment in our series on floral arrangements made easy, we were joined by the lovely and talented Rachel Thibodeaux of Finch Floral, a new go-to for arrangements both beautiful and off the beaten path. For […]
It’s been some time since our last Floral Encyclopedia with the lovely Kristen Caissie of Moon Canyon (her Springtime and Citrus-inspired arrangements seen here). For our most recent edition, Kristen once again created a stunning display – this time featuring a green color story – and helped us put a name to the elements she used. See […]
I recently had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Yukari Iki of The Little Shop of Flowers, creating Japanese-style arrangements almost too exquisite to be true (her tutorial for dried flower wall hangings seen here). For today’s installment, I wanted to share two others that we created – both elegant, understated and making use […]
I was introduced to Iki and her magical Tokyo-based floral studio, The Little Shop of Flowers, by Nicole Cari. I met her Iki while she was in town for the first in a number of California pop-ups planned for the coming year, and was kind enough to walk me through creating several arrangements, the first of which was a dried flower wall hanging.
For the next in our Floral Encyclopedia series with Moon Canyon Design – previous installments seen here, here, here and here – we continue to put a name to some lesser known blooms. Here, a quick guide to some of Kristen’s springtime favorites.
I’ve recently been spotlighting all things citrus, and in keeping with the theme, wanted to share another arrangement from one of my floral favorites. For this edition, the lovely Holly Vesecky of Hollyflora walked me through creating a citrus-inspired display using kumquats and an assortment of complementary greenery and blooms.
