Back in January we had the chance to work with the lovely fashion team at Good Housekeeping, who picked our wonderful Pimlico shop as their location for their spring fashion shoot.

The shoot features the prettiest of prints mixed with sweet sorbet shades and I think you will agree that our gorgeous shop with vibrant blooms and array of vases makes for the perfect backdrop.

Thanks to everyone at Good Housekeeping for making a very cold day in January so much fun.

Check out the rest of the shoot in this month’s May issue of Good Housekeeping on sale now.

The sun is shining and it couldn’t be a more perfect day for Nikki and other chosen home owners in London to open their doors to Livingetc readers and allow them a peak around their abodes. The tours have been created to celebrate inspirational homes in London, as well as raising money to support homeless charity, Crisis.

Nikki has added gorgeous opulent blooms to her sitting room to compliment the clashing colours, textures and patterns in the space – stunning!

And here is one of Nikki’s dogs, Smith enjoying the sunshine and watching all the Livingetc readers visiting his home!

Steve Wheen, 33, an urban guerrilla-gardener, has decided to tackle at least some of Britain’s estimated two million potholes by creating miniature gardens inside them, and we think they’re great!

We had a great time filming with presenter Antonia O’Brien and the Style File Team from ITV’s Lorraine show yesterday. Filming a Mother’s Day inspired style segmant, our Pimlico shop was the ideal location what with all our wonderful Mother’s Day bouquets and gifts on offer.

Thanks so much to all the Lorraine team and watch out for our gorgeous shop on Lorraine this Friday 16th March.

We have been shooting a gorgeous selection of bouquets that Nikki especially selected for Mother’s Day, we hope you like!

We love Parrot Tulips anyway, but there’s something really special about these candy coloured blooms, they’re just so pretty!

There’s something so delicate and wild about Sweet Peas they really do evoke a simpler time.

These hot pink Baroness Roses have an abundance of petals that help to create a fabulous posy.

The ‘All For Love’ Rose is a brand new variety, and it features very heavily in this gorgeous arrangement alongside green Guelder Rose and lilac Lilac. We’ve presented the bouquet in a pink glass vase with more than a nod to the Art Deco movement and we love it!

In our Peach Rose Bouquet we have included green Guelder Rose and white Lilac, which gives a really fresh feel.

With rambling Clematis, white Anemone and Forget – Me – Nots, this beautiful arrangement reminds us of picking flowers as a child in a wild garden. So delicate and pretty!

It wasn’t us but we love the clever way that Holland based artist Anna Garforth has transformed a fence in Catalonia with a bit of masking tape!

We’re very excited about our Liberty Mother’s Day Bouquet, it’s so pretty!

Introducing the “All for Love” rose, a brand new and rare variety only created last year, these beautiful roses combined with Spray Roses, Blush Lilacs, Rambling Clematis and Sweet Avalanche Blush Roses are just delightful!

Head over to the wonderful Liberty website to order in time for Mother’s Day!

We are loving the floral inspired photographs with Vogue’s April cover girl, Sienna Miller. With an array of flowers including gorgeous roses, we adore the summery colours used in the wreath.
