  • Summer Fresh Flowers Arrangements

    With the sun shining outside, we can't bur appreciate how beautiful flowers are in Summer. Of course, it's the season with warmer weather and when flowers (and people) grow happier.

    Beginning on June 21st and ends on September 22nd, Summer is the season of joy and celebration - weddings, outdoor birthday parties, Father's Day and school graduations. It's also the time of year we spend the most outside, going for walks, barbecuing with family and friends, or simply enjoying the sunshine.

  • Biophilic Design – One of the Most Significant Design Trends of 2020

    Let's do an exercise - close your eyes for one minute. Now try to think about an outdoor experience as a child. 

    Maybe you thought about the sound of the waves from a tropical vacation. Perhaps, you remembered climbing a tall tree and could smell the fresh leaves. I'm sure that regardless of the experience you reminisced about in our little exercise when you imagine being in nature, the feeling is POSITIVE. 

    These positive feelings we get when we're in nature are what you strive to achieve in a biophilic design project.

    One of the main elements in successful home decor projects are flowers! Flowers are beautiful - they also have several health benefits, such as helping to reduce anxiety levels and fatigue and improving our mood!

    In that sense, both natural and permanent flower arrangements are excellent for decorating the house or apartment. But today we'll talk about the benefits of decorating with permanent flowers and permanent plants.

  • Summer has Arrived and Flower's are the Best Gifts for the Season

    It's hard to believe that spring has come, and it's already gone! This Saturday marks the summer solstice for us in the Northern Hemisphere. This solstice marks the beginning of summer and the longest day of the year. 

    Some of us have missed birthdays, births and anniversaries. Some of us didn't have a chance to spend Mothers Day with our mothers. Some of us lost loved ones. Our children won't be able to greet their fellow classmates a proper goodbye before Summer and show their appreciation to their teacher's hard work. Our teens won't have a proper graduation, nor a prom. 

    An excellent way to keep our bond and connections healthy despite the imposed distancing is to make gestures of appreciation for the important people in our lives. We happen to believe that flowers are just perfect for conveying warmth, care and love.

  • Permanent Flower Arrangements - an Old New Trend in Home Decor

    However, few people know that artificial flowers have a long history in French haute couture. And they have been getting more and more space in the worlds of art and design.
