and the flowers bloom, like madness in the spring…

#1 | NEW WORK based

Mihalis from Cyprus, is the founder of @fullinyc, a floral studio where anything is possible. You will find him in New York, between flowers and plants, creating floral stories for very special moments. I personally admire him for his knowledge, his research on each plant and his endless creativity. You can read his story here.

#2| STOCKHOLM based

If you like minimalism, here is _j_u_n_g_l_e_ , a Scandinavian plant lover that takes beautiful, simple photos and shares them with the rest of the world. The account is featured at Vogue UK as one of the best garden Instagram account – check it here.

#3| SOUTH KOREA based

La Poetique, from South Korea, creates stunning table centerpieces and floral wreaths which I personally adore for the simplicity and the color palette she chooses every time.

#4| JAPAN based

Coffee anyone? With Sawa, coffeetime and teatime in Japan are never dull. With lots of flowers in beautiful tonal colors, La fee de fleur simply amazes everyone (and especially us) – just have a look at this amazing photo!

#5| BERLIN based

Poppies, tulips, roses, peonies, anemones, chrysanthemums, you choose what you like best. Botanic Art has it all and we love them A L L. We especially love the way this flower studio from Berlin chooses to show off its installations and flower stylings through photography and that makes it a quite special account for flower ‘instalovers’. Don’t you agree?

#6| NICOSIA based

It is a very warm feeling to see an explosion of colors on this Instagram account. Stephanie, the lady behind Artsypots promotes wonderful ceramic pots of cactuses and succulents, making it hard to resist buying just one plant. We really love the sense of humor and psychology tips she gives through photos of her plant babies that are located in Nicosia.

#7| FRIDA LOVERS WORLDWIDE

Did anyone ordered a Frida mood board? The iconic Frida Kahlo, a woman that is a symbol of feminism and art expression was deeply influenced by her Mexican origins (and that included lots of colors and flowers) and this account combines all the Frida inspiration you can get from people around the world.

#8| CHILE based

Two young ladies, Javiera and Fernanda Méndez joint forces and created Casa Botanica, a project coming straight from Chile and aims to connect people with nature. Their Insta account is full of pressed flowers, floral postcards and glass terrariums… They somehow found a way to keep alive all this beauty around us which is kind of amazing right?

#9| AUSTRALIA based

We all know that only kings and queens wear crowns. Well, that is not entirely true. Somewhere in Australia, cats and dogs wear them too. The only difference is that they wear high quality faux flower crowns – we got the ‘wow’ feeling when we saw the amazing head pieces on Freya’s account. Whoever loves dogs, cats and flowers this is def the most beautiful account you will ever follow, trust us.

#10| SAN DIEGO

Jill is the florist lady behind Layered Vintage which is based in San Diego. She holds workshop for flower enthusiasts, she creates stunning installations for weddings and events and she inspires us on a daily basis with all these colorful bouquets.

ολα ειναι δρομος | ιστοριες σε χρωμα θαλασσι

Η ζωή καμιά φορά κρύβει τα παιχνίδια της με μεγάλη πονηριά. Σε αφήνει να νομίζεις ότι κάνεις το δικό σου και το γελοίο είναι ότι νομίζεις πως νικάς. Πως τα καταφέρνεις μόνη… Ώσπου μια μέρα έρχεται από το πουθενά, ένα χάος σε χρώμα θαλασσί και σε ανακατεύει τόσο πολύ, που φέρνει τα πάνω κάτω – η ζωή εκεί πιο πέρα, γελάει με την αντίδραση σου. Όλα είναι δρόμος, λέει… Και αυτό που ακολουθείς και σε ακολουθά πλέον είναι ήδη γραμμένο στο πεπρωμένο σου γιαυτό καλά είναι να το χωνέψεις.

Μια ευθεία είναι αυτός ο δρόμος. Η ζωή θέλει γραμμές και κατευθύνσεις.

Μόνο που εγώ έχω μάθει στις καμπύλες και ότι το μπλε χρώμα του ουρανού με έχει μάθει πως εκτός από τον ορίζοντα που είναι όντως μια ευθεία, μπορώ να ελπίζω και να περιμένω να δω και όλα αυτά τα σύννεφα, που θα με κάνουν να ονειρευτώ. Που θα με αφήσουν να γευτώ, αυτό το κάτι, το άπιαστο… και να φανταστώ έναν άλλο κόσμο… και να πιστέψω σε κάτι μαγικό, όπως έκανα παλιά, όταν ήμουνα παιδί.

ίσως να μην βγάζουν νόημα όλα αυτά,

αλλά

όλα είναι δρόμος,

και ευθείες,

και καμπύλες

|και αυτές είναι οι ιστορίες μου σε χρώμα θαλασσί.

Handmade headpiece ‘Mermaid’s crown’ by @aimerlavieco


There is a quote by Chick Palahniuk I really endorse in my life lately; “We can spend our entire lives letting the world tell us who we are… or we can decide for ourselves.”

I love the freedom of choosing who I want to be every single day. To be flexible with my looks and my hobbies, to explore myself and my wants, to be water and take the shape of many different things…

So last month I woke up one day and said to myself that I really wanted to be a mermaid for a day. I wanted to feel the magic I used to find in all those books when I was a little girl. I didn’t have the tail but that didn’t stop me from creating my own crown made of seashells from the sea. You see, it’s up to our imagination to create our own little world. Little difference does it make to me, what the world believes about how I look or how I behave… I just want to live every single day with the full authority to be anything I want. I believe in magic, whether that is looking at a red rose by the morning sunlight of the day or listening to the waves somewhere, close to a remote beach. Being a mermaid made me feel that actually fairy tales do exist, we just have to create them for ourselves. we need to work for it, to plan for it and to execute it. It needs patience though, as something so beautiful, so magical needs time to grow and mature well.


 

Of course, any photo shooting would fail if behind the scenes the actual mastermind – the photographer – wasn’t gifted enough! Helena Dimitriou made me feel as a part of the ocean, talking to me in such a way that I was completely a different person – I became a mermaid for a while and that was truly unique. She is an original and guess what? She loves portraits and conceptual photography!:)

Follow her please on FB for more photo material (Click HERE)

To be a mermaid in this occasion, couldn’t be possible without the expertise of an amazing makeup artist and for this photo-shooting, I chose Lambriana Savva – a talented lady with astounding skills that understood the concept and wanted to take on the challenge.
