HOW TO UNITE A ROOM WITH FLOWERS


Flower children, I’m back tonight with a fresh post in our FLOWER EDUCATION series! It’s been a little while since I’ve published a dedicated flower education post — and I thought it was time to switch things up a bit! This post is a hybrid, merging FLOWER and DWELL categories — I’m sharing tips and tricks on How To Unite a Room With Flowers, in addition to the inspiration and details behind the stunning sister arrangements Rebecca Dawn Design created for our Living Room Reveal! I’ve always said that flowers are my not so secret weapon to elevate any celebration or space — I absolutely love to have fresh flowers in our home whenever possible. But today I’m sharing exactly how to select flowers that compliment your space and showcasing a variety of blooms and foliage not yet seen here at JustineCelina!

If you’d like to brighten up your space with some cheerful blooms but aren’t sure where to start, you’ve come to the right place! Pour yourself a delicious glass of rosé (hey, it’s hump day and we’ve earned it!) and enjoy a relaxing mid-week read dedicated to creating a cohesive space that feels fresh and inviting. I’m sharing where I source inspiration for flower content as well as flowers in our home, how I select flowers the compliment decor, colour palette and even the plants in a space (our urban jungle is expanding rapidly!). Learn more about how Rebecca worked with Hyacinths, Double Tulips, Ranunculus, Larkspur, Queen Anne’s Lace, Quicksand Roses, Lisianthus, Podocarpus and Camelia to create these complimentary arrangements that perfectly invoked the fleeting beauty of the season. Cheers, friends!

SPRING 2018 TREND GUIDE | LAVENDER LOVE


Fashionistas, welcome back for my final TREND GUIDE of Spring 2018 — dedicated to my recent obsession with all things lavender (if you’ve been following along this spring, you probably saw this coming!). It’s been an exceptionally busy couple of weeks (I’ll be sharing some fun projects I’ve been working on BTS with you soon!), but before the lilacs faded, we managed to pop out to shoot some new style content in my hometown of Strathmore, Alberta. In fact, we squeezed this shoot into the only free hour we had on our way to Brooks to celebrate a birthday — I had to paint my nails at a sequence of red lights on my way out of the city (yes, I was driving!). All things considered, I love the way these images came out!

Regardless of current trends (or the season, for that matter!), a beautiful, flowy top (which I love so much I picked it up in 2 other colours and ordered one for my Mom!), skinny jeans, comfortable, low heels, a cute bag and a great pair of shades is what you’ll find me in on most spring weekends or casual days — another one of my go-to outfit formulas that’s ultra wearable, yet polished. But this spring, I’ve updated this classic look with a selection of seasonal trends and fresh accessories including lavender, pleats, fluted sleeves, straw bags, block heels, coin necklaces and pearls! If you want to dip your toes into the lavender trend but aren’t sure where to start, stay tuned for a few tips that will help you integrate this of-the-moment hue into your wardrobe or beauty routine this season — even if you’re not sure it’s a colour you can pull off (because you totally can!). Today I’m sharing a handful of my favourite trend highlights to carry you from spring into summer (and beyond) in style!

DIGITAL BLOOMS JUNE 2018 | FREE DESKTOP WALLPAPERS


Well hey there, June! Summer is only a few weeks away and Rebecca Dawn Design and I are celebrating with the ultimate soft, dreamy, pastel, watercolour inspired edition of DIGITAL BLOOMS! I’m obviously partial to these shades as they mimic my personal brand here at JustineCelina — and I have to say this is one of my favourite sets of free floral downloads we’ve created over the years. As I’m sure you’ve noticed (just look at my content over the past couple of months!) pastels are everywhere this spring and summer, so this month we curated a dreamy selection of Willow Eucalyptus, blue Delphiniums, lavender Garden Roses, creamy Pom Pom Chrysanthemums, pink Alstroemeria, blush Hyacinths, magenta Tulips and coral Asiatic lilies to create a beautiful, watercolour inspired ombre effect. Embrace the softer side of summer flowers and bring a harmonious, uplifting vibe to your tech with our June 2018 Digital Blooms!

You probably guessed it, this pastel wonderland was inspired by the Pantone Spring 2018 Colour Trend Report! I’ve been particularly inspired by lavender and lilac hues lately (OMG, the lilacs are so gorgeous right now!) and have been incorporating them into my creative work, home, wardrobe and even my beauty routine lately (more on that coming soon!). Freshen up your tech for a brand new season by clicking through to download a floral tech wallpaper to the background of your computer, tablet or phone — absolutely free, no strings attached (seriously… I don’t even ask for your email address!).  Continue Reading

MY 3RD BLOGIVERSARY + 10 THINGS I LEARNED IN MY THIRD YEAR OF BLOGGING


Friends, welcome back for my annual (and very belated!) Blogiversary celebration! My 3rd Blogiversary went roaring by on March 2nd — but to be honest, I was completely engrossed in our Living Room Reveal and some other fun, last minute projects at the time. Earlier this year I chatted about changing things up around here and creating space to let life happen — and that’s exactly what I’ve done! There’s been a lot happening here at JustineCelina lately as we get ready to reveal the next rooms in our SPACE REFRESH series (coming your way later this month!) and I simply had to prioritize my time differently to make this all possible. March was one of my most creatively fulfilling months of my life — it left me completely exhausted but also incredibly inspired! In the two months since My 3rd Blogiversary I’ve reached some milestones I’ve dreamed of achieving since launching JustineCelina and they’ve reminded me exactly why I started this whole thing in the first place. So, although it’s a bit late and I’ve been chipping away at this post when I can, I couldn’t be more thrilled to share this Pantone Spring 2018 inspired 3rd Blogiversary soirée with you!

In the midst of it all, I came up with the concept for this celebratory post pretty last minute — about 10 days before the shoot (which, admittedly, was about 2 months ago!). It was so spontaneous, but serendipitous and things just fell into place (I shot it myself one sunny Friday afternoon with my tripod and self timer). This year, we’re going all out — because after 323 blog posts, almost a million views (OMG!), 180 000 images, 2 900 comments and a whole lot of blood, sweat and tears (quite literally), I truly never thought I’d get here! My third year was one of intense growth, both on these pages and off of them — I hope you enjoy reading about 10 Things I Learned in my Third Year of Blogging in this raw, honest, unabashed post (you may need a sparkling glass of rosé to get though it!). Whether you’re new to JustineCelina (and there are a lot of you beautiful people — welcome!) or have been with me since the very beginning, I’m so grateful to have you here celebrating with me today!

SPRING 2018 TREND GUIDE | CHECK YOURSELF


It seems that we skipped spring entirely here in Calgary over the past 2 weeks and went straight from winter to summer — so naturally, I thought it was time to drop my first Spring 2018 TREND GUIDE on you! Admittedly, it’s difficult to keep up with our extremely bipolar climate in Alberta, let alone dress for it. Although we enjoyed many 20 ºC days in late April and early May, over the past few days we’re back to more typical spring weather — May showers included! While I was ecstatic to bust out all my open toed shoes (you can expect a SS18 SHOE GUIDE coming soon!), I also pulled together a few spring looks at the beginning of the season that have been on repeat lately — this is one of them! I never thought I’d see the day where bare legs were an option, but friends, the time has come!

I’m thrilled to bring you my Spring 2018 Trend Guide | Check Yourself — one of my favourite transitional outfit formulas for our Canadian winter-to-spring season, freshened up with a selection of key trends as we move into warmer weather (I can’t even begin to tell you how refreshing it is to not have to shoot in the snow!). Today I’m chatting about how to integrate checks, blush, OTK boots, round sunnies, panama hats and retro colour pairings into your spring style and highlighting my favourite on trend pieces at every price point. I’m also sharing my favourite source for designer bag dupes — believe it or not, this Chloe Faye look alike was under $40!

Welcome back, flower friends! Spring has finally sprung here in Calgary (hallelujah!) — and Rebecca Dawn Design and I are celebrating with another fresh, seasonally inspired edition of DIGITAL BLOOMS! This month, we focused on flowers, herbs and branches that have a wild, hand picked feeling inspired by the new growth of spring — including Pussy Willows, Delphinium, Acacia, Yellow Button and White Matricaria, Pom Pom Chrysanthemums and Lavender arranged with a sense of whimsy. We hope you enjoy May’s cheerful, free spirited designs as much as we enjoyed creating them!

Embrace this season’s fresh combination of soft pastels and brights on your tech with 3 free digital downloads! This May, we’ve focused primarily on Meadowlark, Little Boy Blue, Blooming Dahlia and Coconut Milk from the Pantone Spring 2018 Colour Trend Report. I love pairing crisp whites up with blue and yellow at this time of year — with a touch of blush throw into the mix, it’s such a happy and vibrant palette! Why not extend your spring cleaning to your computer, tablet and phone this year and reward yourself with a beautiful floral wallpaper when you’re finished? Thank you for joining us for another month of DIGITAL BLOOMS — wishing you all a joyful, inspired and productive month! Continue Reading

DIGITAL BLOOMS APRIL 2018 | FREE DESKTOP WALLPAPERS + DIGITAL BLOOMS TURNS 2!


Happy April 1st, friends! Today marks 2 years since Rebecca Dawn Design and I teamed up to create the first edition of DIGITAL BLOOMS for you — that means we’ve created 72 free tech wallpapers to date! Rebecca and I started working together around my 1st Blogiversary to bring FLOWER content to JustineCelina and make flower education accessible — and we haven’t looked back since. Our free tech wallpapers have since become some of my most popular content — and we’re thrilled you enjoy them just as much as we enjoy creating them for you!

This month, we’ve gone monochromatic — and it’s all about lavender, shades of purple and the 2018 Pantone Colour of the Year, Ultra Violet! If you’re not quite convinced you can pull off one of spring’s hottest colour trends in your wardrobe (although, I bet you totally can!), why not take it for a test drive on the background of your computer, tablet or phone this month? Dress your tech for spring with a lovely selections of Earl Grey and Lavender Garden Roses (learn more about Roses here), Delphiniums, Ranunculus, Anemones (learn more about them here), Lavender (which you’ll be learning all about later this spring), Fringe and Parrot Tulips (learn more about different tulip varieties here) and Feather Eucalyptus.
