I love the idea of creating a little floral arrangement inspired by another piece of art, fashion, or decor. So, Liz of The Nouveau Romantics created this beautiful, richly colored floral bunch inspired by this Christine Soccio painting. Liz wanted to take advantage of the artist’s use of color which translated into scabiosa, astilbe, ranunculus, garden roses, zinnia, honeysuckle vine, feverfew, and craspedia. I love the colors, the texture and they look just beautiful side-by-side… — Joy
This is gorgeous! The colors translate beautifully.
Awesome – love the interpretation!
Great job Liz! It’s beautiful!
Have you ever been to an Art in Bloom event? They are based on this very idea and held at a number of major museums. In Minneapolis: http://www.artsmia.org/art-in-bloom-2011/
BEAUTIFUL! Love the mix and the soft pink to temper the bright orange and yellow (in both photos). Very nice! Thank you for sharing!
I love the colors in the painting!
Wow! what a great job. I love the painting and the arrangement too. This is an idea I’ll definitely be copying
Such an awesome idea. I love how design and art can inspire just about anything. well done!
this is mind.blowingly beautiful. i love the artwork.
Another amazing floral piece by the ever awesome Liz. Bravo!
omg someone just refered me to this blog and I’m in heaven! I love flowers and all types of design and I can feel the creativity oozing out of this blog!! The fact that you made an arrangement inspired by art is just so brilliant! Can’t wait to see me!
I meant can’t wait to see MORE!! lol
love that the translation and how each piece takes on it’s own personality. would love to see each in person.
The Milwaukee Art Museum does this every spring- florists from across the state get assigned a work of art and have to create a floral arrangement inspired by it. It is SO neat to see what they come up with; some literal, some very creative, all so cool. They display the floral arrangements with the pieces behind them so you can judge for yourself. I go every year, and it’s amazing. http://mam.org/bloom/
