weekly wrap up + studio choo

Sometimes, something is so beautiful that I can’t put it into words. All I can do is respond to my embarrassing and overwhelming desire to eat it. I know, I’ve got some problems. When I look at the incredible photos above (created by some of our fave D*S alum, Studio Choo), I’m torn between a very visceral need to bury myself in them or turn them into something I can wear on a daily basis, like a crown. To prevent myself from further embarrassment, I’ll just post these and try to curb my desire to in some way consume them. But if you’re like me and enjoy some serious flower porn, click here to check out more of Studio Choo’s recent work. You can also check out their full archive of posts on D*S right here.

I’m heading out to meet friends who are in town for the shows this weekend, and then tomorrow and Sunday it’s off to Javits for ICFF and the National Stationery Show. Next week is going to be a SEA of new product posts, so stay tuned. I can’t wait. Have a great weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Monday. xo, grace

Below is a summary of this week’s highlights:

    Ha, Stephanie, I loved this post. It made me think of this Maurice Sendak story: http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/show/315932 . No shame in wanting to eat something beautiful. :)

  2. Stevie says:

    I just realized that my favorite kinds of porn definitely do not involve naked people, and I bet that’s true for a lot of people who read this blog.

  3. Diana M. says:

    I visited recently Art in Bloom exhibit At Minneapolis Art Institute. You can find great inspirations and flower arrangement ideas http://bit.ly/Ja4RZ3

  4. I have this exact same reaction to Studio Choo’s flowers. I want to eat them, or cry, or both. They are just… amazing. I don’t even know what else to say. Their flowers are an absolute feast.

  5. Claire says:

    Oh wow, that first arrangement in particular is just too beautiful for words! Thanks for brightening my afternoon.
