  • AURORA

     

    I am still weak at the knees. Takashi Murakami(!), one of our times greatest living artists, contacted me (again!!!) to arrange flowers for MARK RYDEN's gallery opening! Nothing makes me more excited and NOTHING makes me freak out more than making a flower arrangement for an artist that I love and respect. Dubbed the god-father of pop surrealism, Ryden is also one of my all time favorite artists.

    So to the flowers for the gallery opening… after calming down a bit, and after some serious debating, we decided to use his painting Aurora as our inspiration. We love the colors (or perhaps the lack of colors depending on how you see it) and we love the contrast between light and dark in this piece. Hence the light flowers coming out of the dark foliage + soil = dirt which we used instead of a vase (well ok, we also put the dirt on a zink tray…). In addition, we foraged a few ingredients, such as various sized dried pods, to add extra texture… and also because we always love adding something weird to our arrangements.

    The stunning 9 foot painting Aurora is on view at the Paul Kasmin gallery from December 10, 2015 to January 23, 2016.

    The flowers are on view… below.

  • VOGUE! VOGUE! VOGUE!

    We were so extremely proud to be featured on Vogue.com once again last week. In the article, I talked about sourcing and using vintage pieces for your wedding flowers as a way to create a timeless and longer lasting impression. I also talked about upcycling and reusing, two areas my clients can attest I am very passionate about. To read more please visit Vogue.com. We hope to inspire you!

    Below also some pictures that you will not find on Vogue, that worked as inspiration for some of the arrangements and settings we created, such as vintage french lingerie ads and graphics, my flea market finds, as well as vintage China, stemware and silverware from the marvelous rental company Borrowed

    Dress: Gabriella Bridal New York. Thanks also to the lovely Ashley Peraino for organizing and styling the shoot.

  • BROOKLYN FLOWERS: THE BOOK!


    I am so very proud to announce the launch of my new book “Brooklyn Flowers”. It is an instructional book containing simpler flower arrangements made with the two main methods used here at Tin Can Studios: chicken wire and tape grid. The arrangements in the book are a simpler version of our typical style so that everyone can feel comfortable using the flower “recipes”.

    There are also lots of images from my studio as well as street images from the Brooklyn neighborhoods around us such as Red Hook and Williamsburg. The beautiful photographs were all shot by critically acclaimed photographer Paul Brissman with a Hasselblad (my favorite camera!).

    It will first be out in Sweden at Adlibris, Akademibokhandel, Bokus, NK, Åhlens, to name a few. We hope you get to take a look at a copy because we think you will really like it!! My co-author was the mega talented Eva Nyqvist who writes for a wide variety of publications such as Elle Decor and Gourmet. We got so many new ideas during the process that we are already talking about book two and three...

     

     

     

     

  • MIDSUMMER CROWN FOR VOGUE

    As a swede, Swedish midsummer is a celebration that is very close to my heart. Growing up with a mother who always made sure we celebrated things in a traditional way, regardless of where we were living at the time, this holiday brings a lot of sentiment to me. So when Laird Borelli-Persson at Vogue contacted me to see if I could tie a floral crown for Swedish model Frida B Gustavsson and take some pictures of the process for Vogue it was a huge honor for me. And Frida looked so perfect in the crown which you can see here! Below are some of the pictures…hope you like them!

     

     

     

  • WE WERE ON DESIGN*SPONGE!
