Minimal Scandinavian spring styling in a bright, white living space with the Georg Jensen Bloom Botanica collection.

I took these shots of Georg Jensen‘s Bloom Botanica collection before this seismic shift in our lives occurred. The idea that I could drive out to my favourite florist, The Floral Madam in Faversham, and come home with a wrap of delicate spring blooms now seems a total luxury.

I think about how fortunate we are to have the internet in these times, to stay connected, support each other and feel inspired and hopeful. And though it may be difficult to pick up a simple bunch of flowers now, it is just as important to have something beautiful to look while we’re safe at home.

This spring, Georg Jensen launched Bloom Botanica in celebration of the 20th anniversary of its award-winning Bloom collection (it earned itself a place at MOMA). The new iteration designed by Helle Damkjær is an extension of vases and candle holders to complement the original tableware.

Elegant, fresh white spring flowers styled with textural grasses and seed heads in the new, sculptural Bloom Botanica vase, designed by Helle Damkjær for Georg Jensen.

Known for her sculptural, organic approach to contemporary shapes, the collection is influenced by the optimism of spring. Fluid edges of polished stainless steel represent unfurling petals, mimicking a flower in bud opening for the first time.

Inspired by unfurling spring flowers, a single Bloom Botanica tealight holder sits on an oak shelving unit.
The poetic and sculptural Bloom Botanica vase collection by Georg Jensen typifies the elegance of timeless Scandinavian design, styled with white spring flowers in a minimal white living room.

I could only choose my absolute favourite white spring flowers to accompany such a poetic piece. Aren’t they beautiful? Elegant stems of white Anemone and Scabiosa sit with tall candle-like Ornithogalum. I added textural tufts of Calamagrostis from my own garden, with quaking grass and Scabiosa Stellata.

And the results are quiet and calming in my living room. This is the kind of collection that doesn’t need to be styled with flowers to earn its keep as stand-alone sculptural art. That a hard and industrial material as stainless steel can be made to appear soft and tactile can only be a result of the way Damkjæer moulds her designs first with clay.
