A day with Tulipina

You’ve already heard about Tulipina on this blog. She’s a good friend of mine and a damn talented floral artist. We’re actually thinking of developing a floral series on this blog – I have this thing for flowers, but you already know that… But today, I wanted to share with you a magical and very inspiring day I spent last week, following Tulipina around town and in her studio. Here is my day with Tulipina in San Francisco in pictures.

We met at the San Francisco Flower Mart, a heaven for florists and flower lovers.

Kiana managed to gather the most beautiful floral picks for a project. Look at these gorgeous hues!

We then stopped for a quick bite at Vive La Tarte – I wrote about this fantastic foodie spot here a few months ago.

We headed to her studio in Potrero Hill and I let Tulipina work while I snapped a few shots of her making more floral beauty.

And voilà! A bouquet that Kiana created right in front of my eyes. Isn’t it magnificent?

Kiana is now offering bi-monthly subscription videos called “The Art of Flowers” where she shares her tricks of the trade, including centerpieces, bouquets, large scale arrangements, and more. You can sign up here.

Thanks Kiana for letting me play the paparazzo with you and inspire me with your beautiful work!

Stay tuned guys, I have a feeling more floral inspiration is to come on the blog these coming weeks… pssst, think autumnal tablescapes, floral decor for the holiday season, and more ideas to come. In the meantime, you can follow Tulipina’s creative journey via her stunning Instagram feed. Xo, Si-
