Scarlet & Violet at Anthropologie

After my morning at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show yesterday, I took a brisk walk up the King’s Road to visit Anthropologie, where Kensal Rise florist Scarlet & Violet have opened a two week pop up in the store’s gallery space, which has been transformed into a traditional florist.

Owner Victoria Brotherson’s stylish and individual creations (the shop itself is named after Vic’s daughter and goddaughter) are always evocative of an English country garden, and Vic’s own personal style is greatly influenced by the vintage aesthetic, which she uses as the basis for her signature designs.

Seasonal foliage and blooms such as peonies, roses and lavender perfectly match the antique pitchers and planters and retro-charity shop finds that she incorporates into her work.

There are still spaces for a Scarlet & Violet workshop and talk with Vic tomorrow, Wednesday 21st May, at Anthropologie, where customers can receive advice on choosing their flowers and understanding how to group them.

They will also learn how to make simple hand-tied posies with a modest budget and the right vase be it a marmalade pot or a pickling jar.

I adore Scarlet & Violet – they’re my go-to for elegant posies for birthdays or bouquets for events, and their shop on Chamberlayne Road is like a dream! I bet it smells gorgeous in Anthropologie right now :) x
