This month we're sharing an editorial featuring our favourite vases, bowls and pots you can fill with flowers. Featuring homeware brands such as NIKO JUNE, Que Onda Vos, Studio About, Hasami Porcelain and Miyelle.

Sunday Flower Workshop at Afura
To educate ourselves on the art of flower arranging we met up with Ariella Hill from Rae, who's an expert when it comes to floral creations. From her shop and studio in West, Ari shares her love for flowers with a wide community including home enthusiasts and various brands/clients. By playing with shapes and textures, arrangements by Rae can be described as modern, sculptural and sexy (yes, flowers can be sexy!). Check out the images we made during last Sunday's flower workshop with Rae at Afura, it was a blast!
