I am back tonight with another bouquet from last weekend. I am still using the Pierre de Ronsard roses from my mum’s garden but I decided to mix them with some irises that are growing next to the pond. I usually try to stick to one colour scheme when I make my bouquets and avoid mixing blues and pinks. but I really think it works in this arrangement.
Don’t you think?
I like the contrast between the colours and also between the length of the stems. I also added some blue aquilegia to enhance the irises.
I hope you like this one as much as I do.
I wish you all a good night!
The trouble when you come back from a lovely weekend with more than 500 flower pic on your memory card is take it takes you ages to view them, select the best ones and edit them to post on the blog when you get back. The good thing is that you have no regret and it feels you with good vibes. I was telling Mr. Love yesterday night that the only thing I can see when I close my eyes is petals and flowers. There are worst things in the world. I hope you enjoy this little bouquet. Have a great week everyone!
Last Friday, I had the privilege to attend the launch of The Green Gallery under the arches of Amsterdam’s world famous Rijksmuseum, – a magazine celebrating both the beauty and perishableness of nature.
In an enchanted, forest-like setting, the magazine’s content came to life, for one night only.
The set up was truly magical and as I said on Instagram during the event, I had the impression to be eating inside a dutch flower painting from the 17th Century.
For initiator, the Flower Council of Holland, this is the best launch imaginable for their new digital magazine: “Our aim is to show the beauty of flowers and plants through inspiring, artistic and exciting content. This first issue of The Green Gallery revolves around flowers and offers high-end editorial content”, says brand manager Esther de Waard. It was just magical!
The first issue of The Green Gallery is about Flowers
and the second issue coming out this autumn will be about plants.
Founding editor Nancy Berendsen created a beautifully curated magazine around flowers , with very inspiring contributors such as Luisa Brimble, Manuela Sosa or Linda Lomelino. The magazine has been created with many creative spirits from Kinfolk Magazine or Elle Deco and with bloggers from around the world. In the Green Gallery, they talk about food, stylism or fashion but their common inspiration is flowers.
The Green Gallery is available in French, German, English and Dutch can be viewed on desktop, mobile and tablet.
It’s a long time since I have found or taken the time to write a blogpost. I still take lots of photos and still make lots of bouquets but somehow, with my little family, my full time job and my 2 hours commuting time every day, I don’t know anymore when to blog.
Maybe I should rebrand my little online space or start thinking about new projects to find some new motivation for the blog. In fact I have been working on a new visual identity for madame love with a designer friend for some time now, but I need to stick to it and advance on that project too!
Well well, enough about my little “etats d’ame” as the French would say and back to my blogpost.
Today, I would like to show you a lovely flowershop I visited when I was in Brussels a couple of weeks ago with Mr. Love. This shop is situated in the Marolles district of Brussels, on the square where the gorgeous fleamarket takes place every Sunday. It is called La Frénésie and it is full with lovely vintage decoration and pretty flowers. Continue reading →
