Floral Art

March 28, 2013

Friends! I am so excited to be able to finally show you the first post of this beautiful series titled ‘Floral Art’ – created in conjunction with the amazing gals of All & Sundry and photographed by the mighty Tomasz Wagner. Seriously, couldn’t dream of better people for this project. They all are as beautiful as they are talented!

For this series, we selected a few pieces of art as inspiration to create a unique floral arrangement for you to enjoy. All arrangements can be recreated at home and we totally went for a budget-friendly selection of flowers, so we got you covered.

Today’s debut is inspired by the art of Ceren Kilic. Get ready to infuse your space with some serious natural beauty!

FLORAL ART FEATURING CEREN KILIC

I am a huge fan of Ceren Kilic’s work. Her fashion-influenced illustrations are right up my alley; full of colour, patterns, and mixed media. I’ll let the pros of All & Sundry tell you everything about the florals:

This arrangement is composed of light pink and white florals of various angular and contained shapes to parallel the crispness of the Ceren Kilic piece.

The pink protea in particular, though mostly obscured, acts as a figurehead to draw the viewer’s eye towards the top centre of the arrangement before the view gives way to the pink peony and ranunculus spilling on either side. The subtle white carnations, white tulip, Easter lilies, and dusty miller evoke Kilic’s clouds and mountains while providing an overall structure and context for the container (a long ceramic black vase) that ultimately sends the arrangement upwards.

Flowers used in this arrangement: Pink protea, pink ranunculus, pink tulip, pink peony, pink-tinged Easter lilies, white tulip, white carnations, and dusty miller.

We also used a dark wool cloth as a background to mimic the textile feeling of the dress in Kilic’s piece.

This arrangement would look great at a dinner party with subtle lighting – add a few candles and sleek black plates to serve your food and, shazam! You got yourself a pinterest-worthy ambience.

So, did we inspire you to visit the flower shop this weekend? Do it! It’ll make such a huge difference in your space. After shooting this post (which by the way, isn’t Tomasz’ photography amazing?) we all went home with a nice bunch of fresh flowers, and let me tell ya, it feels like sunshine in here.

Hope you loved our first post of this series as much as we do. Keep an eye out for our next Floral Art post!
