Back from my SF trip and looking forward to showing you lots of pics next week! I realized I havent shown you any floral pics in a while so lined this up...
This was from a corporate holiday party we did in December which was hosted at a private residence. I love the elegance and modernity of white and green. We did a large showy arrangement and several shorter ones. Here we have Avalanche and Limbo roses, pom-pom mums, white tulips, green bud hydrangea, leucadendron, alstromeria, green dogwood, seeded eucalyptus, nandina foliage, ranunculas, stock, and lady apples.
I am just crestfallen over the closure of Domino magazine. After Cottage Living closing as well. And Home Companion. And O at Home. I love blogs, obviously - it is in my blood. LOVE. But there is nothing like curling up with the newest shelter mag - glossy paper and all. Especially Domino which I felt covered fresh and attainable style. I know there are a lot worse things going on in the world right now, but those of us in the design world have just lost some inspiration. Read grace's post and over 400 comments here.

Well, I am off to San francisco, my old stomping grounds for a week. Excited to visit family and friends and get inspired and re-energized for a new year! Lots of chatting and shopping ahead but you gotta eat right? I am looking forward to some lemongrass tofu and a ginger limeade at The Slanted Door. And can I help it if I squeeze in a gorgeous latte here and a scoop of homemade organic salted caramel ice cream here???
Let me know if there are any fab new spots you all are loving so I can go!
I had a lovely visit in the shop last weekend from Amanda who works at Seaport - a flower shop in Brooklyn. She has a lovely blog documenting her work - called anticipation. I just love the mood of these artichoke and fiddle head arrangements she has done. Exotic and serene all at once.
