Hello everyone!
I am flying to Holland for the #keukenhof blog tour and will come back with 1.000 pictures of tulips. You can follow my adventures on Instagram meanwhile. Before I leave, I wanted to show this mini bouquet I made with flowers I found in the forest behind my parent’s garden on Monday: Wild anemones and wild hyacinths.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Joyeuse Clique – A Styling Workshop for Bloggers in Provence

Hello everyone!
I hope you are having a good time. I must say I feel very inspired at the moment. I am back to the North of France, where I spend a lot of time photographing flowers from the forest and from my parent’s garden. I just come back from two days spent in the South of France, in a little village called Pernes les fontaine, where I attended a Styling master class called Joyeuse Clique in the concept store “la maison pernoise“.  
Here are some snapshots of this beautiful location very well curated by Lau and Leo, two passionate interior architects, who created a very personal and unique store. You can see more pictures of the Session in my Facebook album.

Easter decoration idea: Hortensia on your table

Hortensia blue side Easter decoration idea: Hortensia on your table flowers 2 decoration

Hello everyone,I just come back from the very inspiring Joyeuse Clique stylism blogger’s session in the South of France. I have just been reviewing the pictures and I can’t wait to show you the outcome in the next few days.
Today I would like to show you what you can do with Hortensia (also called Hydrangea). 

Hortensia is one of my favourite flowers.  They look so splendid in a garden and, as they love water, they are the perfect plants in rainy regions, such as Northern Germany where I live, the west coast of France or of course Great Britain.
Of course, It is not quite spring yet and you are more likely to find hydrangeas in the flower shop than in your garden. So I have decided to show you some ideas of what you can do with a pot that you can buy from the flower shop. 
If you take blue hortensia, you can create a very nice table decoration around it, with shades of green and purple. This can make a nice table for an easter brunch. I love that time of year, but I don’t need to overdecorate my table with hundreds of painted eggs or tiny kitsch hares. 
The good thing with decorating with flowers in a pot is that you can recycle them afterwards by planting them in your garden or in a nice pot on your balcony or terrace.

Flower styling idea: Copper vase with tulips & spirea

LIV Copper tulips Flower styling idea: Copper vase with tulips & spirea flowers 2 decoration

Hello!
How are you? Ready for some flowers? 
I know, I know, copper is not really the newest interior design trend. I know everyone speaks about marble now, but even still, I still like copper. What about you? 
I love the warmth of this colour and I love its reflective surface. I have been asked lately where to find a nice copper vase. The answer is: LIV by TM Interior. The size of this vase is perfect for displaying tulips. I have often a problem with tulips, even if the colour palette is incredible, I find them quite difficult to combine, and a little boring on their own. 
I think adding some foliage, such as spirea, can give them a much wilder and interesting look.
Do you like it?
However, I should better get ready for some tulips as I am going to go to Keukenhof later this month.

Hellebore & peach tree blossom

Hello everyone,
here is just a little bouquet I made with beautiful hellebores and some peach tree blossom from my parent’s garden on Monday. I don’t know the name of the bright pink blossom; but it just looked perfect with the hellebores. I love them, they are so easy to grow and bloom for ever. They also look very pretty as cut flowers even if they won’t last in a vase.
I wish you all a great day! I am on my way to Pernes les Fontaines now!

Flower styling idea: Mini-bouquets with astrantias & chess flowers

LIV by TM Interior mini vases Flower styling idea: Mini bouquets with astrantias & chess flowers flowers 2

Good morning you all!
I hope you had a relaxing week end! Today I want to show what you can do with mini vases, either with a single mini-vase, or by grouping a couple of them. For my bouquets this time, I used some contrasting flowers: astrantias and chess flowers.
I love the effect – the fluffiness and lightness of the astrantia and the complexity and geometrical effect of the chess flower. I mean, the beauty of this flower is almost surreal isn’t it? It always fascinated my when I was a little girl. It is incredible what nature can produce, if you think about it!
The mini vases I used are from the lovely brand LIV by TM Interior. Their mini vases are just the best and I have been using them for many years. If you decide to do many mini bouquets, you can either group them in the middle of a table, or create a lovely vignette on a drawer or cabinet in your living room. You could also use them for a table decoration for a brunch or for a lunch and display one in front of each plate.
