    Hot summer days are finally here and we’re all running outside to our patios and balconies! What better way to relax then sipping a cool summer drink in your own outdoor oasis, right? The problem is everyone else has the same idea. With all your neighbours within sight, it can be hard to unwind and enjoy your patio time. A plant screen is the perfect way to create some privacy, not to mention some cooling shade. Bamboo, grass and vertical gardens are all great ways to shield your outdoor space and make it secluded and inviting for you and your family. If ...

    This past March 8, 2014 we were honoured to participate in the second annual Hush Soiree wedding showcase in Vancouver at the Terminal City Club. We partnered with Chair Decor, Etc to transform the Terrace Room B into a stunning wedding setting, complete with a white and cream flower wedding wall dripping with crystals, yes we beat “Kimye” to it, you better believe it! We paired the floral wedding green wall backdrop with some simple elegant calla lily and curly willow centrepieces so as not to detract from the intricate vertical flower wall and to create a sense of balance in all the opulence.   We love ...

    Spring tip: Turn old pots and planters into outdoor table bases in fantastic colours! A large urn that is about 30” tall is especially versatile because it is the perfect height for a table base.  Combine it with a rustic wooden door used as a table top or unique wooden table tops found at a thrift stores or used building supply stores like ReStore.  Add colourful paint of your choice or if you are feeling extra artistic, add your own stencils or decals.  Finish with a coat of clear polyurethane to withstand the elements and you have a new beautiful ...

    Living walls are making their way into popular events. The most recent and prolific living wall used in an event was for the 2014 Governor’s Ball at the Oscars. Take a look at the stunning stage backdrop!     Another prolific use of vertical living walls and set pieces was at the Dior Haute Couture show at Paris Fashion Week that was created from one million fresh flowers!     The concept of architectural living walls was created in 1938 and made a resurgence in the late 80s. They are now back with a vengeance and looking better then ever. Architects have ...
