Bloom & Wild and Matisse in the Studio

Now here’s a lovely collaboration in SEEN’s opinion: to coincide with the ‘Matisse in the Studio’ exhibition that’s on now until 12th November at the Royal Academy of Arts, Bloom & Wild have created three limited-edition bouquets to evoke the style, objects and palette of the renowned artist Matisse. SEEN has had the pleasure of seeing Bloom & Wild’s creations in the flesh, as it were. They are wonderfully uplifting in their simplicity. The company also packs their flowers so they can be delivered through the letterbox, so there is no delay in customers enjoying their orders.

The Lydia

These lovely bouquets, so simple and fresh in their arrangements are named The Amelie, after Matisse’s wife; the sunny brightness of the blooms celebrates the artist’s famous still-lifes of flowers, and features calendula, snapdragons, bupleurum, and gerberas. £33 with free next day delivery.

The Monstera

The Lydia, is named after Matisse’s muse Lydia Delectorsky, his model, manager, secretary and companion; pom pom chrysanthemums, scabiosa, pitto, wispy burgundy snapdragons, green bell and astrantia evoke the artist’s sojourn in the south of France, asltromeria maracuja roses. The purple hues of the bouquet recall the Matisse’s Provençal paintings. £36 with free next day delivery.

The Monstera pays homage to Matisse’s cut-out paintings and features fiery red hot pokers, calla lily, kangaroo paw, dracaena leaves and of course, Monstera leaves; wonderfully sculptural. £45 with free next day delivery. The bouquets will be available from Bloom & Wild’s website from 25th September.
