Henry Hudson: Gold

We thought we would kick off the year with a little bit of colour inspiration in our favourite medium, flowers! Today’s piece is from the super talented Dara at FLORALUX. You might remember we did a piece on Dara not too long ago (you can read that here), Dara‘s creative use of floral sundries in her work inspires me to push the boundaries in my own work and hopefully yours too! This piece has inspired me to find some of my favourite golden botanical bits and bobs from near and far, hopefully we can all inject a little bit of gold into our work and lives!

Gold Foil Pocket Notebooks by Rifle Paper Co. I love just about everything from Rifle Paper Co, but these little notebooks in particular, with their striking gold botanical foiling, caught my eye.

Pot of Gold by Pop + Scott. I’ve been crushing on Pop + Scott‘s pots for qutie sometime, I love this pot with its splash of gold, it would look really great with a Fiddle Leaf Fig. It also comes in a delightful salmon/gold combo.

Metallic Bag Gold Stack by Uashmama. I have a few Uashmama bags, and they are just fantastic. A washable textured paper, they are versatile to be used practically or for presentation. For floral folk, pop a vase inside the bag and you are ready to add flowers!

Gold-Plated Ginkgo Feather Cuff by Aurélie Bidermann. Golden Ginko. There are no words for how pretty this is!

Gold Glitter Twine by Knot + Bow. Presentation is everything and there is nothing I like more than gorgeous flowers enhanced with goregous wrapping, this would be a lovely little touch of gold to add to any wrap.
