STUDIO INSTALLATION: AUGUST 13 – OCTOBER 8

Amber Daydream

As we sail through the heart of summer, we invite you to soak up those sunbeams with our final floral installation of 2024, which is coming to our West Side studio.

It will feature a circular arch decorated with a rich palette of amber, peach, orange, pink and soft yellow hues – a blend of seasonal colours that can shine throughout both summer and fall’s beginning.

The arch will be set against the white wall that connects with the East Side, leaving the main West Side area open and versatile.

The installation evokes a warm, inviting atmosphere and beautifully blends warmth and nature!
