If you’re ready to learn all about autumn blooms, explore the darker side of fall florals and add a cozy touch to your decor, this post is for you! Rich bordeauxs, warm neutrals, blush and grey have been making waves in all things fall FASHION — and they also translate beautifully to flower and interior design. Welcome autumn into your home today as we chat about familiar and unconventional fall blooms and foliage in this Guide to Bringing Autumn Flowers Into Your Home — including velvety, wine hued Ranunculus, peach Ranunculus, Mother of Pearl Roses (remember those beauties?), Astrantia, Scabiosa, Saracena Lily, Poppy Pods and Angel Wings Begonia Leaves! Rebecca also shares her expert autumn flower care tips to help extend the life of your autumn blooms for as long as possible.
Welcome back for another installment of DIGITAL BLOOMS where I team up with my friend and crazy talented flower designer Rebecca Dawn Design on the first of each month to create 3 free tech wallpapers inspired by seasonal blooms and current trends! This month, we’re drawing inspiration from PANTONE Fall 2017 Fashion Color Reportagain — but this time, we’re honing in on Tawny Port, Butterum, Ballet Slipper and Golden Lime to showcase the moodier side of fall florals (I’ll also be wearing fall florals later this month — keep your eyes peeled for fresh TREND GUIDES coming to JustineCelina in October!).
If you’re ready to embrace a autumn’s dark side, we’ve curated a stunning selection of some familiar and new-to-you blooms — including Ranunculus, Carnations, Astrantia, Scabiosa, Queens Anne’s Lace and Saracena Lilies arranged in undone harmony. Throw on your coziest sweater and fluffiest slippers, pour yourself a second cup of coffee and settle in on this crisp Sunday morning to browse October 2017’s free desktop wallpapers. We hope you enjoy these moody fall florals on the background of your computer, tablet or phone all month long! Let us know which design you chose this month in the comments below — we love to hear from you!
Flower loving friends, the first month of autumn is upon us — and we’re easing into it slowly here at JustineCelina with September 2017’s Free Desktop Wallpapers! This month, Rebecca Dawn Design and I were inspired by the PANTONE Fall 2017 Fashion Color Report for September’s DIGITAL BLOOMS (yes, we’re back on those Pantone Colour Reports again… expect to become very familiar with this one over the next few months and I work with this palette across categories!). This month’s free floral wallpapers are a little bit summer and a little bit fall, just like this gorgeous month — I think they’re my favourite set yet!
September has us lusting after Pantone’s Ballet Slipper, Butterum, Autumn Maple, Golden Lime, Tawny Port and Neutral Grey — I’m crazy about those deep tones and warm neutrals accent by pops of blush and grey to keep things light and airy as we transition into Autumn 2017. If you’re ready to embrace the seasonal change and a brand new colour story on the background of your computer, tablet or phone, click through to download September’s Digital blooms! We’re curated a lovely collection of fresh flowers, foliage and berries — including Quicksand and Mother of Pearl Roses (learn more about them here), Tinted Solidago, Angel Wings Begonia leaves, Larkspur, Poppy Pods, Hypericum, Sweet Peas and Ranunulus (other than being one of our favourite flowers, did you know they’re in season almost year round?). Oh, and if you’re new around here (welcome!) — yes, they really are absolutely free!
August is upon us and we’ve created something completely different for this month’s set of free digital wallpapers! In the most time consuming (but totally worth it!) set of DIGITAL BLOOMS to date, this month Rebecca Dawn Design and I were inspired by airy summer fabrics, tapestries, textiles and on trend, embroidered floral details. We invite you to decorate your tech with 3 free floral designs intricately woven together with a mosaic of curated summer blooms — including Italian ruscus, white hypericum, spray (pompom) chrysanthemums, green hydrangeas, white wax flowers, white spray aster, pink hypericums, weeping podocarpus and pink larkspurs.

Flower friends, welcome back for a very festive edition of DIGITAL BLOOMS — where we’re celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday with an explosion of vibrant, fiery flowers! This month, Rebecca Dawn Design and I were inspired by warm, sun drenched days, summer celebrations and… you guessed it, the spicy side of the Spring 2017 Pantone Fashion Color Report — specifically, Flame. Pantone describes this sizzling, red based orange as fun loving, flamboyant and vivacious. It’s a beautiful summer hue and I can’t wait to work with this fiery shade across categories this month here at JustineCelina (orange is one of my favourite colours to wear during the summer — and did you read that Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette is back in stock?!).
Spice up your tech this month by clicking through to choose from 3 free digital wallpapers and enjoy some sunshine on your the background of your computer, tablet or phone all month long! Our July 2017 Digital Blooms feature Ranunculus, Double Tulips, Narcissus, Asclepia and Genista set to a sizzling colour palette of golden yellow, vibrant orange, warm coral and Pantone’s striking Flame. Happy Canada Day everyone — thanks for stopping by this weekend to celebrate with us! Continue Reading
Happy Summer Solstice, everyone! I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than with a fresh collaborative post in our ALL ABOUT series — where the lovely Rebecca Dawn Design and I team up to educate you on an of the moment seasonal flower. We’ve already covered Tulips and Roses — but this June, it’s All About Peonies here at JustineCelina! Today we’re dishing everything you’ve ever wanted to know about everyone’s favourite summer bloom.
Whether you’re purchasing Peonies this summer or trimming some from your garden, consider this All About Peonies post your one-stop shop when it comes to summer’s most beautiful bloom.

Rebecca also shares her expert tips for getting your Peonies to open more quickly! Otherworldly Coral Sunset Peonies (yes, we’re still drawing inspiration from the Spring 2017 Pantone Fashion Color Report and into millennial pink) take centre stage in today’s history lesson for the Peony obsessed — they’re my absolute favourite variety!
It’s Peony season and I bet you’re just as excited as we are! Peonies are some of our favourite flowers — so, to welcome the first month of summer here at JustineCelina, our June DIGITAL BLOOMS are dedicated to Peonies and flowering trees! The trees have finally started to blossom here in Calgary and this month we did a bit of urban foraging, capturing local Apple and Mayflower blossoms to compliment our stunning Coral Sunset and Snowball Peonies. Our 3 free June 2017 Free Desktop Wallpapers bring the best of our spring landscape straight to your tech so you can enjoy these gorgeous blooms all summer long!
The pink craze continues here at JustineCelina this month, as does the obsession with the Spring 2017 Pantone Fashion Color Report. This June, Rebeca Dawn Design and I are crazy for watercolour inspired hues of soft coral, warm violet and creamy white juxtaposed with fresh greens. We kept our designs simple to let the exquisite beauty of our Coral Sunset Peonies sing (seriously — have you ever seen a more beautiful flower?!). If you love Peonies and soft, pastel hues, click through to download June’s tech wallpapers to the background of your computer, tablet or phone — absolutely free!
