Liz does an amazing job matching her florals with the space they are in. Every arrangement I’ve seen of hers embodies the feel and aesthetic that is around them. This takes an extremely talented and seasoned eye! It’s also pretty amazing to me that Nouveau is one stop shop, she does it all- event planning & design, paper good, florals & decor!… and nothing falters.

I have a sort of obsession with Saipua. It’s hard for me to explain how I feel when I see their work. Have you ever looked at something so amazing that you felt like it understood you?… That sounds extremely cheesy, but it’s true. I see their arrangements and I want to just dive into it, hug it, squeal in excitement over it, consume it…I think you get it. Their work is soulful and dramatically beautiful. Every arrangement is full of so many textures and different organic materials. The colors are spot on and sit beside each other perfectly.

When I first started this whole flower venture, Amy Merrick was the first floral design co. I went to for research. What originally drew me to her was the quarterly magazine, Kinfolk. The photo was of a girl actually wearing a floral garland around her shoulders- a shaw of sorts. It was gorgeous! That’s what I love about Amy’s vision- flowers don’t have to be in a vessel. You can do so many things with them! She even once did a spread of ice cream cones filled with flowers in an ice cream color pallete! Aside from her “think outside the box” work, I am inspired by her more monochromatic pieces.
