Fleurish Design Studio: A Tour


Oh my word people, do I have a treat for you today.

I have been following the career of a local woman since she worked at a favourite local nursery of mine that was apart of her family A few years ago she ventured out on her own (an inspiration to me) and opened her own floral design studio and event planning business. She started in the basement of her home and eventually her husband and her built a barn to house her business. In a non-creepy non-stalker kind of way I cyber walked over to her facebook page a few weeks ago and my mouth....hit.....the...floor!

I couldn't sheepishly contact her fast enough when I saw all of the vintage amazingness in this space. I was also super excited to meet a woman my age doing it her way.

I would like to introduce you to the space of Jessica the brains and power behind


There are a lot of photos, please forgive me I was excited. 


the main work counter with galvanized top

 



the planning space for brides and events has 2 huge industrial desks with stools and 1 original chippy table. check out the colour on those chairs
 

Jessica was kind enough to leave out some of her fresh florals for the shoot. this garden/flower lover was in heaven



those amazing glass doors lead into her cooler with the original brass hardware. and seriously, are we seeing that plate rack attached to the wood beam with vintage silver at attention






that wall of barnboard is from the original barn that stood here. giving it a reclaimed new life.










what could be behind that lovely antique sliding door


the bathroom! an antique desk turned vanity. LOVE!

 






a furniture painter i am but you just don't get a finish like this without years of age

 


one last flower picture. parrot tulips, my favourite, too bad they're so hard to find in retail. hmmm idea, flowers and home store? oh boy, if i had my way it would be a flower, soap, home decor, furniture and cafe/store. i don't think my head would explode right away lol.


What do you think? Amazing right?
The best part was Jessica was just as wonderful as I remembered and without sounding weird I will be taking her up on her coffee date. Can't hurt to put vintage lovers together. As long as she isn't grabbing the scales and ironstone before me!

If you are local to the Niagara Region and are planning a wedding or event or know someone that is, contact Jessica through her facebook page.

She also has a lovely blog with photos of her work and arrangements.


Have a great day everyone,
Go smell some flowers, it will make you feel better about the weather

    1. Hi Teddee, yes those were magnolia leaves! There were a few different kind of berries included within that garland but for the most part viburnum 'steel' berries. Thanks for the love ;)
