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.

DIGITAL BLOOMS SEPTEMBER 2017 | FREE DESKTOP WALLPAPERS

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!

DIGITAL BLOOMS JULY 2017 | FREE DESKTOP WALLPAPERS

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?!).
