I love visiting New York, it’s one of those places I can just visit again and again. There’s always something new and exciting to see and experience, as well as old friends and favourite haunts to revisit.
I recently enjoyed a very special trip there – for my Birthday – so I thought I would dedicate this post to the New York Rosa.
Yes that’s right, the Rose, in all its splendour colours and varieties, was made the State flower in 1955. As one of the most appreciated flowers throughout the centuries and as one of the most popular blooms, it seems quite fitting to be attributed to New York, a favoured and admired destination the world over.
As the official flower of the state, it is also features in many of our stunning bouquets. Each Rose inspired bouquet shows off how truly beautiful and varied the flower really is, from the Classic White Rose Knot, the Elegant Rose Knot, the Romantic Rose Knot, the heavenly Scented Rose Knot to the seasonal Autumn Rose Knot - there is a Rose for every occasion.
Visit our online shop to view the full collection.

What a pleasure it was to read Lucy Yeomans report on Net-a-porter’s The Edit last week that the new season ahead is looking rosy, with a flourish of floral romance set to hit our wardrobes.
With Grazia Daily also posting that winter floral prints are a top trend, it’s just fabulous news!
What’s more, this new blooming trend brings with it a fresh phase to floral fashion with the runways and celebrities showing a more cool, darker side to the traditional pretty posies.
What an exciting thought to know that Wild at Heart is so en vogue!

When Leanne Carter-Taylor owner of quintessential duckeggBLUE and THE quintessential MAGAZINE, Sydney contacted me asking me to feature in the magazine, in the ‘Meet the Maker’ section, I jumped at the opportunity.
quintessential duckeggBLUE specialise in reclaimed industrial and antique furniture, offering only the most select pieces from around the world, including Europe, America and Russia, and of course England. THE quintessential MAGAZINE showcases stories behind the quintessential duckeggBLUE brand through a rich visual blend of beautiful photography, interactive features and inspiring videos.
With the 5th Edition of THE quintessential MAGAZINE is inspired by the words of Marc Chagall – ‘Art is the unceasing effort to compete with the beauty of flowers – and never succeeding ’, a floral theme is seen throughout. I met with the team at my fabulous flagship store at Pimlico. Brilliant photographer Nassima Rothacker shot me at work making a seasonal bouquet of apricot roses, deep red peonies, peach hypericum berries and seasonal foliage.
Thank you so much to Leanne and her team, I am very honoured to feature in THE quintessential MAGAZINE.

I love drawings of flowers and plants, so I was delighted to see that The Chelsea Physic Garden is currently staging an exhibition, until the end of August, which brings together work by all its botanical artists, reflecting the diversity and sheer beauty of plants in the Garden.
The Chelsea Physic Garden Florilegium Society was formed in 1995, with the primary aim of recording in paintings and drawings, all plants growing in the Physic Garden. With more than 5,000 plants listed as growing in the garden, there is plenty of choice for the members to choose from. The members submit their paintings and pen and ink drawings yearly with only the very best being accepted to maintain the highest standards, currently over 200 watercolours and 120 drawings have been accepted by the society.
The paintings and drawings are truly beautiful and definitely worth a visit.

With Autumn just around the corner all eyes are on the fashion world and the trends of Autumn Winter 2013. With floral prints being a top favourite for many designers, Marie Claire Runway asked me to design four bouquets to compliment four key looks from the AW13 collections. I was of course delighted to have been asked and started to think of fabulous flower combinations straight away.
For Givenchy, a sumptuous mix of coral charm peonies, peach avalanche roses, mocha coloured quicksand roses and peachy bombastic spray roses, a fitting tribute to Riccardo Tisci’s gypsy-rose prints.
To reflect the exquisite prints from Erdem’s Hitchcock-esque collection I combined velvety black Baccara roses and cool lilac roses with scented purple sweet peas, royal blue delphinium and alchemilla mollis.
Valentino’s truly beautiful medieval tapestry-style embroidered design is reflected in a bouquet of rich red Naomi and piano roses, royal blue delphinium, soft grey eucalyptus and nigella.
Lanvin’s fabulous giant 3-D appliqued rose print designed by Alber Elbaz is complimented perfectly with scented white peonies, white English garden roses and camellia leaves.

How I smiled when I saw this beautiful photo of Anna Friel and her just as lovely floral fascinator on the front cover of the Times this morning. Anna turned many a head at Ladies Day at Goodwood yesterday, wearing her heart on her head, instead of her sleeve. This beautiful design, made from colourful silk rose buds is fun, quirky and just perfect for a lovely summer’s day at the races. Fabulous!
