Have you ever had one of those experiences where you wanted to pinch yourself just to ensure it wasn’t a dream?
While we’d love for you to pick up your own copy to see the beautiful spread in our old Gastown studio, we also wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a bit about that special day—the day we created our Garden Flower decal pack!
Unlike many of our decals, the Garden Flowers were actually created from photographs.
As Vancouver is often rainy and grey, we decided to breathe life into our homes and studio by creating a decal pack full of realistic, blooming botanicals.
The obvious solution? Order gorgeous peonies, ranunculus, roses, and poppies from Italy via Alice de Crom’s shop Florista, of course! These pristine petals were teeming with life and color, perfect for photographing.
We carefully arranged the budding beauties and photographed them, making sure not to miss a single detail.
Then, our incredibly talented team worked their artistic magic and transformed the photographs into larger-than-life floral decals for your walls—painting color into even the gloomiest of days!
Of course…we also had some fun with the Italian flowers after the work was done. They flew all the way from Italy after all; it would have been a shame not to have shown them a good time. But let’s be honest, it was us that had that best time! Sigh. If only we had flowers flown in from Italy every day…
Have you used our Garden Flowers? Did you know that they were real photos of exotic blooms? We’d love to hear your Garden Flowers decal story and see photos!
