Today we're sharing about one of our favorite creators, Livia Cetti of The Green Vase who's beautiful work we styled into our Spring Summer 2022 photoshoot. Click through to read more and see her paper creations featured in our Spring photography.
When we plan our photoshoots for each new collection, we brainstorm ideas for the overall look of the shoot, the color palette being used and “dream” props to source. With the Paradise Garden design, composed of stitched sweet peas, sunflowers, roses, dahlias, foxgloves, cosmos, lilacs, poppies, hellebores, and peonies, we envisioned using The Green Vase’s sculptural botanicals as a perfect compliment to it.
We have been in awe of the tissue and crepe-paper flowers since seeing them at John Derian, our shared stockist in New York. Luckily, Livia Cetti, the owner and creator of The Green Vase is generous and lovely and crafted the potted peonies and geraniums below. The radiant pinks and varied greens of the patterned leaves in the paper peony and geranium plants made our photoshoot living room come to life.

With our stitched linens and The Green Vase’s painted papers, we love the idea that you can always have a vibrant piece of spring and summer in your home even in the dreary days when winter is lingering. They’re both a great sustainable option for year-long floral beauty you can forget to water with no repercussions!
