With the promise of changing leaves dancing on the late-summer breeze, I’m back with a fresh instalment of DIGITAL BLOOMS to welcome my favourite month of the year! I love September because it combines the best of summer and autumn — and I’ve channeled that transitional inspiration into this month’s free tech wallpaper. Last weekend we popped over to a local farmer’s market where some incredibly lovely bouquets of sunflowers were on display and I couldn’t resist picking one up to share with all of you! The best part? Everything featured in September 2019’s Digital Blooms is organic, biodynamic, growing here in Alberta right now! I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to celebrate the season.
September’s DIGITAL BLOOMS are heavily inspired by the Pantone Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 Fashion Colour Trend Report featuring warm, transitional hues of Chili Pepper, Biking Red, Rocky Road, Sugar Almond and Dark Cheddar set on a moody Bluestone backdrop. Unique Chianti and Little Becka Sunflowers are complimented by Rudbeckia, Strawflower, wild Firewheels and Barberry leaves in free desktop wallpaper that’s equal parts sunny and dramatic — just like the first month of autumn. Give your devices a seasonal makeover by clicking through to download September’s free floral tech wallpaper!
Flower children, welcome back for the August 2019 Edition of DIGITAL BLOOMS! In an effort to capture the fleeting beauty of our precious Canadian summers, this month’s free floral wallpaper features locally grown (and currently blooming!) sunshiny Garden Roses (learn All About Roses) and delicate white Poppies, complimented by buttery Stock, fluttery Lisianthus (hailing from British Columbia) along with whimsical Waxflowers — set on a Pantone 2019 Colour of the Year inspired backdrop. If you’re ready to deck your tech out in some major summer vibes, August’s free desktop wallpaper is for you!
Bring summer’s beautiful flourishing gardens to the background of your computer, tablet or phone with August 2019’s Digital Blooms.

Happy Canada Day Long weekend, beautiful people! Today I’m celebrating the first long weekend of Summer 2019 and my 400th blog post here at JustineCelina (isn’t that wild?!) with July 2019’s Free Desktop Wallpaper. I’ve been lilac-obsessed lately (case in point) and have captured their fleeting beauty in July’s DIGITAL BLOOMS, inspired by dreamy lavender hues and Calgary’s blooming trees and gardens. July 2019’s free floral wallpaper has a laid-back, hand-picked vibe that beautifully compliments summer’s carefree sunshiny days!
Foraged Lilacs, Chive Flowers from our community garden, Freesia, Scabiosa and Misty Blue Statice are whimsically arranged on a complimentary lavender background for a soft, monochromatic effect in July 2019’s Digital Blooms. Enjoy the essence of blooming lilac trees (learn more about how to forage blooming branches and create an arrangement) and thriving summer gardens by clicking through to download a floral tech wallpaper to the background of your computer, tablet or phone — absolutely free!
Need a fresh playlist for Canada Day Long Weekend? My June 2019 Soundtrack has you covered — featuring an hour and a half of lighthearted, chill, easy-listening grooves (with a few hip-hop curveballs thrown in for good measure!). No matter what you’re up to this weekend, my favourite tracks from this June are perfect to throw on anytime, anywhere. Now, let’s just hope the sunshine holds out!
Although I discovered lots of new artists and tracks this month, I had Philip Larue’s West Coast, Rojyr’s Kenji, Kina Granis’s In The Waiting – Reimagined, Tony Velour’s Moment, Justin King’s Tennis Court, Jameson Flood’s Every Night, Runner’s Eggshell, ØDYSSEE’s Remember Me, Drake and Rock Ross’s Money in the Grave, EXES and Jome’s One Day, swim good now and Kogane’s Grand Beach and tons of Far Caspian on repeat. Wishing all my Canadian friends a fun and safe long weekend!
Peony season is upon us once again — and this month at JustineCelina I’m celebrating one of my favourite flowers in all of their beautiful simplicity for June 2019’s DIGITAL BLOOMS! It looks like warmer weather is finally here to stay and Peonies have started to pop up in local flower markets and grocery stores (if you’re here in Calgary, be sure to stop into a Safeway to score Peonies at an incredible price!). The flower pictured in June 2019 Free Desktop Wallpaper actually came from my Mom’s country garden where I captured this design, inspired by sweet summer blooms dancing on the warm breeze!
My obsession with the Pantone’s SS19 Fashion Colour Trend Report continues this month (you’ll be hearing more about it in my upcoming SS19 Lookbook, dropping soon!) and I’m particularly intrigued by Sweet Lilac paired up with Pepper Stem. If you love Peonies and dreamy pastel pastel pinks, click through to download June’s tech wallpaper to the background of your computer, tablet or phone — absolutely free!

After the blur that was April, somehow it’s May 1st — and Rebecca Dawn Design and I are back with a fresh, free, floral tech wallpaper! Although we’ve been experiencing Calgary’s classic second winter as of late (insert eye roll), I’m eagerly anticipating balmy spring temperatures and find myself craving all things soft, dreamy and feminine. This month, we’ve created a simplistic, quintessentially spring design inspired by early seasonal blooms in sweet pastel shades complimented by earthy vines of green.
May’s free tech wallpaper includes stunning Keira and Patience Garden Roses (learn all about roses), Blushing Bride Proteas and foraged greenery.

Have you seen this gorgeous, fluffy grass floating around all over your favourite social media platform lately and wondered what it is and where you can get yourself some?! Me too, my friend! In fact, my recent obsession with these beautiful, bohemian plumes has inspired a fresh installment in my ALL ABOUT series — and this time, it’s All About Pampas Grass! You’ve likely seen a surge of pampas trickle into my recent content — I’ve been working with it since the holidays and have since incorporated it into nearly every room in our home (the obsession is real!). Typically my ALL ABOUT series is reserved for FLOWERS, but dried arrangements, grasses and foliage are having a major moment this year — so I’ve expanded!
If you’re intrigued by Pampas Grass and want to know where to purchase it, how much it costs and how to condition it to it to keep it from shedding, consider my All About Pampas Grass post your one-stop educational resource to learn everything you ever wanted to know about this popular plume. Today we’re chatting alternate names and meanings, where to purchase locally as well as online, varieties available, vase life, what to look for when purchasing, how to care for and condition your Pampas Grass so you can enjoy it for years to come. I’m also sharing some dried arrangement tips and innovative ideas on how to incorporate Pampas Grass into your decor. Fellow boho lovers, pour yourself a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and settle in for a relaxing read as we cover all things pampas — my favourite ornamental grass!
