Give me Beauty

"Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed" 

W. Whitman

 

When you wake up at 4.30 am simply to head to the Flower Market, after sleeping only 2 hours because you spent a wonderful night at the O2 Arena for Adele's concert, that means just one thing.

Being at the New Covent Garden Flower Market, at this time of the year, when nature delivers beautiful, delicate flowers and you know that it's just the beginning, it's simply refreshing, fabulous. A wonder for your eyes.

This time I sourced my blooms from a different person, I knew he had one of the most beautiful garden roses and that is what I was looking for along with some sweet pea flowers. hellebores and hydrangeas. This time I thought: "I go wild, well a bit boho too!".

This is the result, I hope you like it.

New Opportunities

Few days to Valentine’s and to the setting up of a new pop-up space in London: how exciting that is! I cannot stop drawing pictures in my mind of how the window display will be, thinking about the interiors and promotion of the place. Although challenging I am simply looking forward to start playing with flowers and colours. Wandering around the Flower Market looking for inspiration, spending some quality time by filling up my eyes with beauty, choosing to surprise…I will never get tired of this. This time of the year will not be just red roses but a selection of vibrant and delicate colours according to the season. Hundreds of flowers will warm up a lovely space along with some great prints and antique furniture, could I ask for more?

 Fill your days with Poetry.
