Hans Zijlstra

Hans Zijlstra really stands out amongst other Dutch floral arrangers due to his particular viewpoint and sophisticated taste. One can recognise certain elements of soft linear and floaty transparent style in his arrangements. They look utterly graphic but at the same time - aerial. We were lucky to work with Hans on several projects. He always tends to surprise us with his extraordinary approach and his choice of materials. As a result his design amazes us with the beautiful harmony and character. This is not a surprise for those who have known Hans for a long time, because he was born in a family of floral designers! We are captivated by the series of his arrangements with phalaenopsis orchids which reflects the delicate glamour of these

flowers like nothing else. Using rough natural materials - twigs, twine and bumps, he enhances the impression of elegance created by these graceful exotic flowers. Floral designer Hans Zijlstra T +31(0)50 313 37 72 info@bloemen-zijlstra.nl www.bloemen-zijlstra.nl

WINTER

INSPIRATIONS White Zehnya & Santini Sangi

Chrysanthemum AAA Doria Pink

Chrysanthemums are a special kind of flowers. They’re usually being associated with autumn, but we suggest to broaden your perception of chrysanthemums as they look absolutely stunning in winter table arrangements and bouquets as well. Wintertime is all about cosy Christmas evenings and great family dinners. Decorating your living room with these arrangements will make you feel all warm on the inside. Fluffy and creamy Aljonka

Chrysanthemums Aljonka Salmon & AAA Doria Orange

Salmon with Santini AAA Doria Orange complimented by an elegant touch of gold and spicy cones will take your winter decorations to the next level. A vase with a woolen scarf – pure cosiness, isn’t it? Rather fancying a posh winter wedding arrangement that will blow everybody’s mind? Use saturated colours and different bulb shapes of Dekker Chrysanten to create the core of the arrangement. Choose dark bordeaux and bronze to make it dramatic and festive. These are extremely trendy shades for this upcoming winter! Try intense coloured Santini AAA Kiku Edvaldo with dahlia and some branches of phalaenopsis Bohemian Rome, Rosebud and Euphorbia. This will add more air and space to the arragement, making it light and elegant. Decorate it in a shiny vase and voilá: your glamorous winter eyecatcher is ready!

WINTERY SETTING

The Wunderkammer shows in their 15th edition of the Shop for a Week their love for handmade decorations. Made by hand, using old and traditional techniques all these items breathe originality, uniqueness and knowledge of their maker. Think of a wintery setting with festive laid tables, surprising combination of materials and objects. One table in a nearly seethrough setting, glass, minerals, candles and naturalia in silver shades, whites, off whites, greys and faded pinks. Another setting has a more earthen feel; wood, ceramics, metal and horns, the color scheme here, brown, warm, gold and copper. There will also be a lot of collections to be seen, these little curated compilations give a wider view on a subject, think of vintage ceramics, natural horns and antlers, mouth blown glass objects and minerals. There will be many smaller and bigger presents to make it easier for you to find the right gift for the festive season. To make this experience even better, you can drop by more often, as this Shop will stay open for a longer period, until Christmas and even a few days after, you can come and visit this wintery oasis of craftsmanship as you please.

ABOUT THE WUNDERKAMMER The Wunderkammer of flower artists Florian Seyd and Ueli Signer is responsible for the styling and floral decorations for exclusive hotels, restaurants and events in the Netherlands and abroad.

some freshly cut branches of potted flowers. Try different combinations! Bring some anthuriums, orchids, primrose, roses and hanging green plants into play. Put water into a glass vase and wrap it with some ribbon, lace or harness. Add a bit of coloured gel or ornamental balls inside. Insert several chrysanthemums or anthurium flowers. The exclusive arrangement is ready! Look at this phalaenopsis and kalanchoe disclosing their hidden beauty so differently from the simple “potted flower look”. Amazingly cute miniature orchids Amore Mio® and the snow cloud of kalanchoe La Mia Favorita® combined together create a completely new impression rather than being separate from each other.

Favorita BellaBianca ®

Both plants look utterly impressive because of the increased material density and this amusing vase shape. Interestingly, potted plants always acquire sort of a state-of-art appearance being placed in a vase of unusual shape or colour. Take a closer look at these contemporary combinations of textures and shapes. Such an eclectic approach enhances the effect of each component and will never make your customers bored.

THE GREEN CASCADE

photo PrimaLabel.nl / Нилс ван Хаутс

Sometimes the interior lacks a certain freshness and lightness. What’s more, in a big city we usually experience the oxygen deficiency. To cope with these problems you might want to employ some ampel evergreen plants. The name ‘Ampel’ comes from the German word ‘Amplel’ meaning a hanging vase for flowers. The range of these nicely hanging plants is so broad that anyone can pick something to his or her taste. Long Chlorophytum, waxy Hoya leaves or maybe flowing feathers of Peperomia? You can easily hang these plants in special pots or place them on a bookshelf. The hanging plants look especially gorgeous in ensembles. Ampel plants is a great phyto design idea for a minimalistic or office interior. In fact, they do not distract one from the working atmosphere, while allowing to stay focused and get rid of stress. Hence, these hanging green plants is one of the best solutions for any living and working space!

Anyone can not only connect to the live stream during the event, but really engage in conversations by asking questions and making comments on Twitter. The theme of the latest Tweet Jam that took place this September was Vintage Fall. This was an amazing opportunity for designers to express their extraordinary creativity by accepting challenges from the Flower Factor team. Commercial works or real art-pieces? Flower Factor believes both are important and worth attention. Check out the arrangements from the 6th Tweet Jam on the website: www.flowerfactor.com
