A couple of months ago on a visit to The Department Store, I discovered the incredible botanical creations of floral designer and stylist, Annie Oxborough. Since then, I’ve thought about her work a lot, so it’s about time I share it with you.
It seems that Annie challenges herself by using almost anything to create a terrarium, from an old drawer to a science beaker or even that old granny vase you happened to miss at the op shop. From there she’ll fill it with an array of different coloured soils, sands and stones and plants. The effect is anything from beautifully simple to dramatic as you can see from the images.
If you’re in Auckland you can pay a visit to her corner in The Department Store Takapuna, where she’s got designs and sizes to cater for every budget and need. I warn you though, plan to put aside a good amount of time to wander through the rest of The Department Store while you’re there.
