The floral pedestal

Nina: “I love to combine and shape ‘unsuitable’ colours, patterns and textures. A boundless mix of styles, like you see in nature. And I like to do things that arise in my heart. Nature for me is an important and an inexhaustible source of inspiration. It’s my break in an urban environment. It provides an immense relief within the busy atmosphere of a city. Flowers, they stand for beauty and positivity. They are the pops of colour in my life.
To add character to the styling in this story, I have had special accessories made of fresh flowers by a floral designer. Like the beautiful statement flower earrings you see. These are the leading characters of this story, not the model. She’s only there to give the beauty of the flowers a pedestal_______.”

John William Waterhouse (1849–1917)

John William Waterhouse was born in the city of Rome in the same year that the members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John Everett Millais and William Holman Hunt, were first causing a stir in the London art scene. Later on he moved to London, where he enrolled in the Royal Academy of Art.
