pretty petals – paphiopedilum orchids

We are pretty smitten in the studio this week.  We are featuring a type of orchid that we have never had the pleasure of having – paphiopedilum, or more commonly known as the lady slipper orchid.  This particular kind of paphiopedilum is an exotic hybrid originating from species found in Southeast Asia. the Indian Subcontinent, south China, and New Guinea.  In the floral and horticultural industry we usually refer to them as paphs.

This striking green and white paph is sleek and contemporary.  It would look stunning in an open, minimalistic setting. If you have always wanted to display something unique in your home than this is definitely the plant for you.  The flower will last several months, and requires very little care.  A nice bright area away from direct sun and a watering every week or two is all this plant needs!

52 objects in the studio – rose gold paint

Rose gold resurfaced in the jewelry market a few years ago.  I embraced it right away because it compliments the pink undertones of my fair skin. So imagine our sheer delight when this trend started hitting the floral industry!  Instead of silver and gold vases and accessories, we have started to see something a bit more pink.  When Design Master (a floral and craft paint company) announced that they were adding a rose gold spray paint to their Colortool line we jumped for joy.  This paint is incredible.   It covers beautifully, making whatever you tint look like a million bucks!
