In Bloom Spring 2013
The Best Things in Life
The Best Things in Life
Change is in the air. Can you feel it? Plans made with absolute certainty give way to what was meant to be if we trust the process and our abilities to navigate uncharted waters. More and more, we find ourselves drawn to the idea that the best things in life evolve over time. Spaces that mix together traditions, past and present, heirlooms and new treasures with a spirit of unabashed playfulness take our breath away. Magical places take time, patience and a little bit of risk-taking to create—much like updating websites and newsletters we’ve discovered! Light of heart and filled with the possibilities of what may be, we’re eagerly anticipating another season of new beginnings on the southwest coast of Florida.
Happy Spring from Eve, Alan & Martha and Our Entire Awesome Orchids Team
Other-worldly Charms
Artisanl Home Furnishings
We’re always so excited to share our finds with you. Venture past our shop’s front room and down our gardeners’ path where you’ll discover our newest haven for artisanal home furnishings, art, objects and much more gathered together in a tranquil salon setting. Lamps, bowls and candelabras carrying the patina of age in palettes of milky white and mellow brown mingle nicely with freshly whitewashed side tables and credenzas and glazed garden stools. Adorning the walls are some of our all-time favorite mirrors—ornately framed and topped with imperial gold crowns for just a touch of witty irreverence sure to make you smile.  What We Know: Mirrors never have to match one another. Eve combines various shapes and sizes for a sculptural effect on home, office and, of course, shop walls.
Splashes of Color with Fabulous Phals
Fabulous Phals
Let inspiration find you in shades of vibrant orange, yellow, pink and red.  Locally grown and hand-selected Phals on our shop shelves bloom brightly in end of day sunset colors that bring a splash of warmth into your home, office or special event space. What We Know: Martha fills a large cachepot with orchids in a range of sunset shades and places it atop her entryway table to greet arriving guests, but, you choose the spot in your own home to be the center of everyone’s admiring attention.
Hand Finished Jewelry Spring Nights Sparkle
Finely crafted in the USA, hand-finished pieces of jewelry (we’re all loving the bold and colorful dangling earrings from LaContessa) add sparkle to spring nights on the town. Perfect as is or mix and match with your seasonal favorites for a look uniquely your own.
