What better way to kick off the week than to gaze at these ridiculously, positively, oh-my-goodness-worthy images from Elizabeth Messina of stunning blooms from SOIREE | CENTER Member and preferred florist, Forage Florals. Jill’s passion for flowers is instantly palpable when you see her work, not to mention that many of the flowers and botanicals that are used in her arrangements are foraged or sustainably grown on her own ranch in Santa Barbara Wine Country…how cool is that?!
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS YOUR SPECIALTY?
“Creating arrangements with unique and interesting foliage and blooms, bringing in textures and fragrances from the native California landscape.”
OVERALL STYLE IN 3 WORDS?
Natural . Unique . Textural
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
“Antique oil paintings of flowers. Oils take long periods of time to paint, artists often captured the life and death of a flower in one canvas. I imagine these artists thoughtfully painting the portrait over time as each petal fell to the table. I love the darkness and depth in these paintings, the arrangements are often perfectly wild and a bit undone.”
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS YOUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY?
“My design philosophy is quirky and unconventional. I enjoy the rustic and the natural…. I enjoy being surprised and inspired by the landscape that surrounds me… I love that I will never see the same flower twice.”
