The New Romantic.

10 Feb

     Gone are the days when a dozen red roses would take one’s breath away. Today’s cosmopolitan couples own a discerning eye for good design, refined colors, and stimulating forms. They look for design objects with histories, fresh products with artistry, and services with philosophies. They will justly apply these principles to the flowers that they will gift for Valentine’s Day. Contemporary floral design proudly flaunts the natural beauty of flowers. Natural colors and unaffected forms are preferred over contrived and uniform arrangements. The new romantic floral design incorporates rich textural elements –such as seeds, berries, and foliages–  in order to delight and charm this sophisticated eye.

[fLo rE sta] for MIDOMA

14 Mar

MIDOMA is an exciting concept consisting of a joint Salon, Gallery, and Boutique, all housed together under the same roof. Floresta collaborated with MIDOMA for their new collection entitled “Above + Below”. For this project, MIDOMA gathered a group of artists who explored the creative possibilities of juxtaposing light and dark gothic vintage styles. This resulted in effortlessly embellished beautiful images.
