Be So Brave Bouquet
People say pictures are worth a thousand words so we finally decided to book our favorite photographer, Jane Beiles, to shoot lifestyle images of our Fall 2017 collection. The house we scouted belongs to the wonderful artist and founder of Jack and Lulu, Julie Bowers Murphy, who was kind enough to let us take it over for a day.
The Highlands Bouquet
Before the shoot we had spent some time in the house deciding which spaces would work for our new designs. Since the collection was called Alpine Attitude (where rustic earthy elements mix with modern flair) we wanted to incorporate Julie’s whimsical, yet contemporary, taste as much as possible. Thank goodness she had so many decorative items to play with and her paintings made a wonderful backdrop!
In Full Bloom Bouquet
Needless to say, Jane is a total pro and knew exactly how to make our flowers come alive. Not to mention Pretzel, Julie’s adorable pup, who decided he wanted to be part of the action.
Little Nell Bouquet
Chalet Chic Bouquet
We love how the pictures turned out and we hope you do, too… Here’s to a happy fall season full of beauty and of course, flowers!
As many of our loyal readers know, we’re not big into the color orange. You won’t find much of it in our homes or even in our closets… yes, even those Hermes boxes don’t entice us! But that doesn’t mean we don’t admire the beautiful fall foliage that abounds in our neck of the woods. It’s just that you wouldn’t necessarily find it decorating our dining tables or in our foyer.
Thankfully, coral and blush pink, mellow yellow and chocolate brown flowers are on trend this fall, especially when paired with fruit, branches and berries à la Constance Spry. And why not add persimmons, pomegranates, ornamental kale or seeded eucalyptus to a bouquet to give it that wild, natural look?
As for shape, the looser and more organic the arrangement, the better. We love how these designs evoke the fancy free days of fall.
Wishing you all a fabulous Friday!
