A GUIDE TO BRINGING AUTUMN FLOWERS INTO YOUR HOME

Flower friends, it’s been awhile since our last FLOWER EDUCATION post — but today Rebecca Dawn Design and I are back with A Guide to Bringing Autumn Flowers Into Your Home! We’ve had an absolutely beautiful autumn here in Calgary and the changing landscape inspired us to switch up our decor and colour palettes indoors as well. With so many stunning fall blooms to choose from in October, Rebecca and I teamed up to create this moody autumn arrangement inspired by (you guessed it) the Pantone Fall 2017 Colour Trend Report — its been so much fun translating seasonal colour inspiration across categories!

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 β€” 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.

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!

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?!).

DIY FLOATING SPRING CENTREPIECE

Many of us are bringing fresh flowers into our homes this spring — but despite our best care, all flowers eventually fade. Today I’ve teamed up with my friend and incredibly talented flower designer Rebecca Dawn Design to share an extremely simple (and extremely beautiful!) DIY Floating Spring Centrepiece — the perfect way to extend the life of blooms that are on their way out! All you need is a large serving bowl, fresh water and a handful of blooms — either repurposed from a less than youthful arrangement, or foraged from your garden! We’re covering everything you need to know to create a showstopping centrepiece to infuse any space with the fleeting beauty of spring blossoms — expert flower arranging skills not required.

You guessed it — we’re still drawing inspiration from Pantone’s spring palette and highlighting a melange of gorgeous spring blooms in soft shades of Pale Dogwood, Flame, Pink Yarrow, Hazelnut and (of course) a hint of the Colour of the Year for 2017, Greenery. Kick back with Rebecca and I tonight as we show you how to create this easy going, pastel hued centrepiece to adorn your coffee table, dining table, or enliven your al fresco entertaining this season!

APRIL 2017 SOUNDTRACK

My April 2017 Soundtrack is one of my favourite Monthly Soundtracks I’ve shared in quite awhile. I’m not sure what it was (being laid up at home for 10 days while my finger recovered probably had something to do with it!) but I was in such a musical mood this month and discovered so many incredible, inspiring artists along with way.

April’s Soundtrack is chill, happy and upbeat with lots of alternative, indie and electronic vibes — plus a healthy dose of folk and hip hop thrown in for good measure. There have been so many standout tracks on rotation this month, but Donovan Woods It’ll Work Itself Out, a really cool, stripped down remix of Don’t Dream It’s Over, Louis the Child and Elohim’s Love is Alive, Mating Ritual’s Cold, Chet Porter Chelsea Culter’s Stay, One Man Dancing’s Blank Page, Hollow Cove’s Coastline, RAC and Roastam’s This Song, Jessie Early’s Body Can’t Hold, Louis the Child and Ashe’s World on Fire, Utah’s No Coast, CLAVVS Silver Tongue, Paperwhite’s Human Nature, Fallen Roses and B dom’s Yours and Nobody Else’s, The Chainsmoker’s The One, Skrux’s Our Fragment, Goldroom’s Till Sunrise, Emmit Fenn’s Blinded, The 1975’s A Change of Heart, Rachel K Collier’s Paper Tiger, No Suits and Abhi The Nomad’s I’m Good and Stonefox’s Dreamstate sounded particularly good to my ears (I’m only about halfway through the playlist but I’ll park it there!). I can’t wait for you to hear them in this 5 hour, 82 song playlist!

A BLUSHING SPRING ARRANGEMENT

Flower children, welcome back for another installment in our FLOWER EDUCATION series! Today Rebecca Dawn Design and I couldn’t be more excited to share this Blushing Spring Arrangement with you — it’s sweet, fragrant and right on trend for Spring 2017 (nope, I’m not even close to being done with the Spring 2017 Pantone Fashion Color Report!). Although I love each of the arrangements and bouquets Rebecca and I create, I have to say — this one is my all time favourite!

Blush tones are a huge trend this spring and its been so much fun translating seasonal colour inspiration across categories. This season, blush, peach and neutral tones have been present in my BEAUTY content and I can’t stop wearing blush inspired neutrals at the moment (they’ll be popping up in my next FASHION post!). Not only are blush and neutral toned blooms perfectly on trend, but the exquisite variety of shades that mother natures provides for us each spring is truly nothing short of amazing. Embrace the season with us today as we chat about our favourite spring blooms and flowering branches in this Blushing Spring Arrangement — including dreamy, oversized Japanese Ranunculus, standard Ranunculus, Quicksand Roses, Lisianthus, Hyacinths and fragrant Magnolia branches hailing from Canada’s west coast! Rebecca also shares her expert flowering branch foraging and care tips to inspire you to enjoy the beauty of the season in your home this spring.
