Fall Themed Floral Arrangement 秋季主题花艺

Before winter comes, we had our private “Autumn Floral Workshop” at Concept Floral Vancouver, catching up with friends while making our floral art creations!

赶在冬天到来临前,我们在Concept Floral Vancouver举办了一个私人的《秋季花艺课程》一边与朋友们叙叙旧,一边创作花卉艺术!

Concept Floral Vancouver

Why not make your own floral arrangement to celebrate this Fall Season? These arrangements help reflect the colder air, changing leaves and the transition into winter, featuring lots of orange and shades of yellow as well as small decorative ghost pumpkins!

何不自己动手布置花艺,来迎接秋天的气息呢?新的花艺布置,以大量橙色和黄色为主色调,配上小小的装饰南瓜,正好映衬出,随着悄然进入冬季而转冷的天气和褪色的落叶。

It is fun to play with “fall colors” and use a brighter, more colorful palette for the season.

这一季,就用更明快、更鲜艳的调色板来享受玩转“秋日色彩”的乐趣吧。

Fall flower arrangements in various shades of red, orange, yellow, pink and purple colors look breathtaking, dramatic and spectacular, offering gorgeous home decorations for any room in autumn.

各种红、橙、黄、粉、紫的秋季花饰美得让人窒息,抢眼又壮观,在秋天可以为任何一个房间带来漂亮的家居点缀。

We had a lot of fun making many different styles of floral arrangements, with traditional, or free style, or abstract!  I'm sure it will add a touch of natural beauty to our home, passing on our love for life and art!

我们开开心心自己动手,创造出许多不同风格的花艺,有传统,自由风格,或抽象! 我相信这会给我们的家增添一丝自然之美,传递我们对生活和艺术的热爱!

Beautiful fabrics can inspire your entire decorating ideas. 美丽的面料可以激发您整个装饰设计灵感

Fabrics are some of the most important elements as you make your decorating plans. They can set the mood and influence the way you feel.

面料的选用对于您制定您的布置计划至关重要。它们可以奠定环境的基调,影响您身处其中的感受。

Looking at fabrics can be a dizzying affair. Whether you’re outfitting a new outdoor collection, bringing a vintage side chair back to life, or looking for dramatic drapes to frame your windows, these fabrics will take your project to new and exciting heights. Check out our picks from the latest collections.

对着各种材质左挑右选难免让人头昏脑胀。不论您在为配置室外的伤脑筋,还是要选一张具有复古品味的边椅,抑或在找寻富丽堂皇的帷幕装饰您的窗户,挑对了这些材料能让您的家居顿时提升到一个令人惊喜的新高度。来看看我们为您挑选的最新款式。

Bauhaus Prints 包豪斯印花

The geometric patterns of the year are blocky and bold but can be used to complement classic touches, as seen in the Parisian apartment of designer Laura Gonzalez.

今年的几何花样图案大块且色彩醒目,正好和古典的调调互补,就像我们在设计师Laura Gonzalez的巴黎公寓里看到的那样。

Modern Moiré 现代Moiré

The silk fabric with rippled texture may seem old-fashioned, but the applications, like covering a modern chair and plain wall in Schumacher's Incomparable moire, are absolutely fresh.

这种丝质带有水波纹的面料看上去可能有点老式,然而只要使用得当,像作为一款新式椅子的椅套,或像Schumacher那样覆盖整面墙,一样能让人眼前一亮。

Sophisticated Stripes 优雅条纹

Far from your typical sailor stripe, these patterns bring energy to a space without overpowering. Designer Miles Redd proved its worth by using an awning stripe fabric to outfit the outdoor dining pavilion of a Bahamas vacation home.

完全不同您所熟知的典型海军条纹,这种纹样给空间带来生机,又不会喧宾夺主。设计师Miles Redd就证明它有多好用,他拿雨棚条纹材料来打造露天用餐小洋亭,给巴哈马度假小屋添上点睛一笔。

Sunny Side 阳光面

Call it color therapy. Decorating with shades of yellow can bring instant optimism to a space while remaining luxe, as seen in the sunny living room of Jimmie Johnson's New York home.

也称之为色彩疗法。用大面积的黄色来作为居家装饰,能瞬间带来乐观的态度,看上去也足够奢华大气,当您看到Jimmie Johnson在纽约家里的阳光明媚的起居室就能立刻明白了。

Haute Pink 高级粉红

Bright pink is certainly an unexpected choice for upholstery. But when contrasted with rich neutral tones like the stone-gray walls that set the backdrop for seating covered in Cowtan & Tout's Kazan fabric, the result is less precious and more punchy.

亮粉红用在室内装潢上肯定让人意外。但只要大规模使用中性色,和这样的石灰色墙面刚好形成反差,再在前面放上一把用来自Cowtan & Tout的Kazan面料包裹的座椅,又能给人以又不矫饰又不失鲜明个性的感觉。

Saturday with TeaCoffeeTea 与《茶非茶》相约星期六

There’s a beautiful American novel by Mitch Albom called Tuesdays with Morrie that shares and captures the perfect story about embracing life and living each day to the fullest. How about you spend your Saturday with us surrounded with flowers and spend your Sunday reading this novel surrounded by the flowers that you arranged? 美国作家Mitch Album写过一本精彩的小说叫《相约星期二》,向我们分享了一个完美的故事:把我人生,拥抱生活,把每一天都过到极致。所以您何不和我们一道在鲜花的包围下度过一个美丽的星期六,然后在礼拜天尝试读一下这本小说,伴着自己亲手制作的插花,慢悠悠地享受一个雨天的美丽。 tuesdayswithmorrie-web _dsc4113-%e5%89%af%e6%9c%ac _dsc4328-%e5%89%af%e6%9c%ac Flower workshop is a great idea for Raincouver raining almost everyday in Autumn.

Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way. 您和这世界相约的日子就这么一点,无须仓促,不必焦虑,人生旅途中请您一定闻一闻沿途铺满花香的气息。 _dsc3675-%e5%89%af%e6%9c%ac _dsc3815-%e5%89%af%e6%9c%ac2 _dsc3622-%e5%89%af%e6%9c%ac _dsc3191-%e5%89%af%e6%9c%ac2 _dsc4262-%e5%89%af%e6%9c%ac No time to complain about the rain when you are busy enjoying your life. Especially when your life is with TeaCoffeeTea. Life is TeaCoffeeTea. 不要把时间浪费在抱怨阴雨,您大可以让自己的生活更充实, 让鲜花绽放您的美好生活。尤其,当您的生活中拥有茶非茶, 因为生活就是每个人自己的茶非茶。 angela-signature2-a-moved-out

That may seem like a space that isn’t enough to plant anything. 一般侧院的土地较为狭窄,大概只有1.5-2米宽,这样的地方好像种什么东西都不太合适。 image 2 I’m excited to teach you a simple way to make your side yard from an eyesore into a treasure. To buy or build a proper plant wood base, that is deep, narrow, and long. Of course, take the base overhead the ground for watering seepage. 我有一个非常棒,而且简单的方法,让原本不堪入目的侧院变得人见人爱、变废为宝。去买或自己搭建一个合适的木框基座,应该像这样深、窄、且长。当然,要让基座架在地面之上确保水有渗透的空隙。 c5b8dd16c09b68d3986cabb2402827af N-4oMgT2P5VTyfKU7LCuGRxPWO2If8bKisTuAgO1f0c,mUe7D8JlisZE3G3AnMis6NxNfEIxuOrfHgtMLnM6IJM GardenPlanters_b001 Plant different types of fruit trees, like apple trees, blueberry trees, various vegetables, or just an evergreen plants. 再种上不同种类的果树,诸如苹果树、蓝莓树,或各种蔬菜,仅仅是常绿木也可以。 vvefllKwsUx2gqDjGetYX-WlbN6PnreRKU14LrATEVc VpOmIMnmzixoYTDw4UlHxn7y3erIFfohBfsSG-NRz0g WK56zTdG1c4rEOHZmo4acEdidAswkaWF1wJ_Tt6JL30 And every year, you can enjoy your harvest to treat yourself with whole organic fruits and to breathe in clean air and feel the satisfaction of your amazing life. 这样每一年,您就能惊喜地收获累累果实,甜甜蜜蜜地犒劳自己,还都是全健康的有机蔬果哦!尽情呼吸新鲜的空气,享受满园的丰收滋味,感受精彩生活带来的心满意足。 angela-signature

Garden Autumn Dresses 花园秋装

With the arrival of the late autumn, the leaves begin to fall, the grass begins to wilt, and your garden needs the extra love to warm up as the seasons change. 随着深秋的到来,树叶开始凋落,青草开始枯萎,而这时候你的花园更需要额外的呵护,来迎接季节的变化。 Autumn 02 Autumn 03 col11-2965537857-O With the dog dots or weeds covering up your lawn, you can change this by  cleaning up the weeds and adding more elements into your garden. 随着草坪枯萎成斑斑点点,杂草丛生起来时,你必须做一些花园的清理和改造,让您的花园注入新的灵动。 99 Red Shoes in the Garden _DSC5867 A relaxing corner with a reading bench, a patio to watch the leaves falling, or a rockery perhaps, a tree house?

I’m in the garden 我在花园里

"I’m in the garden” is a mantra of my good friend. She repeats this mantra to aid the concentration in her meditation and passion for her garden, and she makes sure she can spend many hours in her garden every day. This stimulates me to share her garden with you. “我在花园里”是我好朋友的一句口头禅。她总把这句话挂在嘴边,好让自己能时时刻刻沉静在对花园的专注或遐想中。她是如此钟爱她的花园,每天在花园里能一呆就是好几小时,这让我很想把她的花园拿出来和你们分享。 v4HBeT48yn-6qxweD0CBwCunNc9xjZkZWcVcU0juX_4,6ENZqyckNTiDqHNH0jRiTPDNl-voQfrG4lN8toAEqw8,TERb4eWn9OYbbMlR6H3c6A-C2_V4ktNyv5VGsA5FloYIMG_5625 garden 3 Her garden is just 6000 sqft but it was selected one of the beautiful 7 gardens to see in Vancouver this year.

My garden murmur 我的花园物语

Coming back home late with an amazing surprise! Tonight was an exciting day as my garden finally completed. It felt so good and welcoming as I surrounded myself in my garden even at night. I tried to take few photos of my beautiful garden murmur at night with my cell phone, but it did not do any justice. I wasn’t able to record the beautiful moments of it all on the cell phone photos. I really must learn the professional photography skills. 夜归,惊喜!今晚是一个令人兴奋的一天,我的花园终于完工。花园看上去如此美妙,在静静的夜晚温婉欢迎晚归的我,这感觉真好!我试图用手机拍下今晚如此美丽的花园潺潺私语,但这样做真的没有任何意义,因为我根本无法仅用手机来记录下这一切的美丽瞬间,我真的必须要去学会专业摄影技巧了。 IMG_5621 Garden 02 With the right lighting in the garden, the flowers and trees can be sketched out well and capture its beauty. People would be able to notice their beauty instead of just walking by them after daily busy working rhythm . I’ve shared the professional photographer’s picture of few things in my garden to show how beautiful it really is. 花园里有了合适的灯光,勾勒出花草树木的静逸,不致于每日忙碌而忽略了他们的美丽。我在这里分享一些我的摄影师专业拍摄的照片,来表达我对花园的钟爱,她是那么的美丽。 _DSC5823 _DSC5818 As summer passes, I seem to have no fear of Winter’s cold and darkness because I think even in the snow season, my garden having the warm lights will look more beautiful, shinning and sparkling like crystals. 虽然仍处夏末,我似乎已经无惧冬日的灰色阴冷,因为花园的灯光会把冬雪折射出水晶的剔透。 _DSC5805 col5-2965537247-O Sitting in my garden , no matter what the season, it is a beautiful place where I can sit and ponder and gather all my thoughts from  business to family;Looking up, I can not help but discover the night sky and clouds are still visibly blue and white, like a canvas supporting a lush. 坐在花园里,不管春夏秋冬,这里是我钟爱的美丽地方,静坐、思考、整理我所有的思绪;抬头仰望,不禁发现夜色中的蓝天白云清晰可见,犹如一块画布承托出郁郁葱葱。 _DSC5826 _DSC5838 _DSC5840 _DSC5902 col14-2965538231-O It is a place where I have a clear perspective of what is important. Besides a mood of Thanksgiving, what else can be the better words to express my feelings now.  Suddenly I found for so many years, it seems that my franchise business have already helped so many people move to this fairly clean and beautiful place of the earth. At this moment, everything could be better and prospective again. 花园是个神奇的地方,我在这里发现或找回生命中的至真至爱。除了感恩还能有什么更好的词语来抒发此时的心绪。 突然发现这么多年,看似专营的生意场意外地帮助了这么多人来到这个地球上还算洁净的角落, 一切可以伟大起来了。 angela-signature2-a-moved-out

My admire Sensation to European 我的欧洲情怀

Today I was reading an article about this beautiful mom and her family. Her and her beloved husband and their 6 children and 14 dogs were living in a small village located in the countryside of France.Perhaps you have heard of her, Mimi Thorisson. A bi-racial of Chinese and French, she absorbed and turned both of her cultures into her own. 今天我正在读一篇文章,关于一个漂亮的妈妈和她的家庭。她和她挚爱的丈夫养育有6个孩子,此外还有14条狗狗,共同生活在法国郊外的一个小村庄。也许您也听说过她,她正是Mimi Thorisson。作为一名中法后裔,她兼收并蓄了两种不同的文化并将之融入了自己的生活。 IMG_2437 And I had read a famous novel by Lisa See, Shanghai Girls . Both Mimi Thorisson’s story and the book inspired me. Perhaps it is my deep fascination and love for European culture and European Art Deco that draws me into their stories. 我曾经读到过一部著名的小说,邝丽莎的上海女孩。Mimi Thorisson的故事和这本书有异曲同工之妙,她们都激励了我。或许是我对欧洲文化以及欧洲Art Deco风格的深深眷恋和迷情,让我被她们的故事魂牵梦萦。 IMG_2318 _DSC2561 Europe 13 My European sensation journey started out by my dear friend, Ms. Harma. Her house is beautifully decorated with the mixture of Art Deco. It has many antiques from France, Italy, Holland, and even China. 在温哥华,我对欧洲仰慕的情怀,在我的好友Harma家里得以尽情地抒发。她的家可谓欧洲情愫主打之外,Art Deco风格混搭的精致典范。里面收藏着来自法国、意大利、荷兰甚至中国的诸多古董。 Europe 03 Europe 09 Europe 11 Every time I visit her house, I melt into this dream wonderland. I admire European’s innate artistic lifestyle and their lifestyle of enjoyment and pursuit of happiness and pleasure. This European mark has been permeating deeply into their bloods for centuries. Hammar can enjoy simply to use those wonderful and precious antique pieces everyday starting from the first sight of every morning till every sweet goodnight. 每次来到她家,我仿佛融入一片梦幻天地。我欣赏欧洲人骨子里的艺术感悟气息,以及他们享受并追求幸福和欢乐的生活方式。这种欧洲印记历经世代已深深地根植到他们的血液中。Hammar就这么简单优雅地天天用着她那些极致珍贵的古董,从清晨一睁开眼到每晚甜蜜的晚安,这种生活状态惬意之至。 _DSC2561 Europe 04 _DSC2661 In her beautiful home, I saw two similar antique cabinets named “Bledermeier”, which originated from Austria. These Bledermeier refers to the work of literature, music, and the visual arts and furniture in the period between the years of 1815 and 1848, the year of romance. 在她漂亮的家里,我看到两件相似的叫做“Bledermeier”博古柜,都来自奥地利。这些Bledermeier反映了1815到1848年间,即浪漫主义时期文学、音乐、视觉艺术及家具的样式。 Europe 14 22 She explained at the early years, the lines and the pole of the cabinets will tell you the difference of when it was made. The ones made in the early years had curly pole where the ones made in the late years had the straight pole 她向我解释,在早些年,这些橱柜上的纹路和立柱都能告诉您他们制作年份的不同。像有弧度的立柱生产年代就要早些,而这些笔直的立柱就更晚些。 In her living room, there were antique crystal chandeliers from Holland, along with an 18th century oil painting that hung above the couch. Both were fabulous company as I sat to read some magazines. 在她的起居室里,装饰有来自荷兰的古老水晶吊灯,沙发的墙上则挂有18世纪的油画。而我就坐在其中,就那么随便翻了几页杂志,那美轮美奂的氛围已经把我陶醉。 Europe 05 Europe 08 Harmar’s house is really full of precious antique pieces. There were beautiful French lamps that I loved. One in particular was called “Bouillotte” It was named after a card game called “Bouillotte” which was so popular in the 18th century in France that they named the lamp and a card table after it. Because it is from the 18th century, originally, this was a candle stand. Today it has been modernized to turn it into a lamp , but the candle arms are still there. This lamp is often used in French/ European design and can be very expensive, especially original ones. Harmar的房子无疑尽收了各种珍贵的古董。里面就有为我所喜爱的法式台灯,尤其是其中一盏叫做“Bouillotte”的。据说它的名字来自法国18世纪颇为流行的一种纸牌游戏 “Bouillotte”,人们后来就以这种游戏来命名牌桌和上面摆放的灯具。18世纪当初是点蜡烛的,而今被演绎成一盏台灯,但依旧保留原来烛台的风貌。 这些灯经常被用于典型的法国和欧洲家居设计风格,而且非常昂贵,尤其是那些原始古董。 Europe 02 Europe 07 Above the lamp, there was an original paining by George Romney. He was a very famous painter to paint the leading society figures. This painting was of Lady W. Russell. 就在灯的上方,悬挂着知名画家George Romney的真迹。George Romney擅长画作社会领导人物,像这幅画里画的就是W. Russell女士Europe 12 The console under the lamp was a side table that French King Louis XVI had. It was inspired by the straight lines and right angles of the furniture and architecture of Romans and the Greeks. 台灯就摆放在一张曾经属于法国国王路易十六的一张边桌上。桌子仿照了罗马及希腊风家具和建筑风格的直线和弧度。 Europe 10 Europe 15 How exciting to be surrounded by such amazing pieces and artwork. This was a great day of good company, art, and knowledge. 我的欧洲情怀再一次被这些精致的家饰和艺术品所感动而兴奋, 又一天在充满欧洲经典艺术和渊源知识中,体验和享受我所爱慕的美丽时光。 angela-signature2-a-moved-out
