I've been meaning to share Fleur*t with you for a while now. It's a really lovely shop in the Richmond district on Clement Street with a great flair for unique design and some really unusual and inventive ideas for displaying cut flowers and potted plants.
Their site is undergoing renovations, but in the meantime, I shot a ton of pix. It's part floral and garden boutique, part home decor and a little bit French flea market. They have very creatively utilized all kinds of vintage pieces as containers for an assortment of colorful gerber daisies, exotic orchids, gardenias and prehistoric looking succulents. Although the pieces are old, they have a cool modern edge to them.
It's a great shop for a housewarming gift, or just a special prezzie for yourself. I love the simple white bowl of floating gardenias and am going to steal this idea for sure - I have just the (salad!) bowl for it. That's a great thing about Fleur*t, you leave inspired to rummage through your cupboards, closets or garage for cast-offs that may give new life to a potted plant or a bouquet of your favorite flowers.
and pretty hand towels, as well as one giant sculpture of some kind of shepherd,
should you be on the lookout for one of those.
