lately i have really been feeling like this blog is missing something. i am such a fan of florals and really wanted to find a way to incorporate them into designlovefest in a unique way. so here’s what gonna happen…(and hopefully we can make it a more frequent column around here!)

i am teaming up with floral designer, kristen caissie, from moon canyon design co. who will be creating an arrangement based on an artist’s workspace or studio. basically, if this studio were a flower, what would it be? i love her wildflower aesthetic, hopefully you do too!

i’ll let kristen take it from here…

A potter and a floral designer is a match made in heaven. Here in LA, master potter + studio director of Heath Ceramics, Adam Silverman is my dream come true.  Heath is mecca as far as I’m concerned and stepping inside Adam’s studio was BEYOND inspiring.

Adam loved the seeing the finished floral arrangement, commenting on how seeing his work put to use in such a way just seems so right. (you can see Adam’s work at Heath Ceramics or at the Edward Cella Gallery through December 29th)

Choosing one of Adam’s newer pieces, I created a floral arrangement that accentuates the vessels organically-rooted textural quality.

the arrangement includes parrot tulips, dahlias, cypress, eucalyptus pod, ice cedar, + amaranth.

    Such a lovely idea! I can never get enough of flowers + cool studio places = match made in heaven.

    This space and those florals are amazingly beautiful!!

    great post, really hope that this becomes regular! Flowers are a beautiful natural design! I was so intrigued to scroll down while reading the post to see the result: it was PERFECT! I’ve imagined an arrangement in those tones too, and the eucalyptus is genius. Thank you so much for this post. oh, and the pottery is wonderful too!

    I just started hyperventilating at the sight of all those beautiful ceramics and wooden chopping boards. Obviously I can never go to this store, as I would spend every dime I have.

    you’re right… there haven’t been enough floral things here lately! first of all, i love how new maker florists are using wildflowers.. i feel like it’s a thing now, and it’s beautiful! second of all, that florist has amazing hair. jeals over here.

    Just when I think you can’t raise the bar any higher designlovefest does it again! SSHH….the annual Heath sample sale is out of this world and worth the trip to Sausalito.

    I love this idea for a series! Any type of inspiration for interior styling is always something I love to bookmark for later. These flowers are great too. I like that they aren’t overly bright.
