Today’s Artist Affection is for Kate Holt of Flower Wild.  I came across Flower Wild through Pinterest.  I love Jose Villa and his stylings, and I basically pin everything I see of his events… And I noticed a trend – Flower Wild designs a lot of the arrangements and personal flowers for his shoots and events.  So I found Kate’s website with an integrated blog and I also found her (old) blog.  All good.  All wonderful.  All gorgeous blooms, designed in such a down to earth and natural way.

I read Kate’s design philosphy on her website and I fell even more in love.  I love her philosophy  – “Never force a flower”.  She designs in a way that lets each flower do it’s own thing.  You won’t see anything that would require wiring (like stephanotis) and everything that creates a full lush natural and romantic bouquet.  I see a lot of poppies, peonies, ranunculus and tulips.  Blooms that all speak for themselves.

Thank you Kate for your inspiration and a fantastic firm philosophy.  It’s a pleasure to work in the same industry!
