Home & Garden
Heidi Joynt and Molly Kobelt, local flower farmers and floral designers, aren't afraid of the fall fade: "Just as we embrace spring for the newness it brings to all things growing," says Joynt, "we also embrace the fall as the flowers are slowly drained of the saturated tones and become more muted. The decay and detritus becomes inspiration and we give the spotlight to wilder textures." The duo plans to ride out this fall in their newly opened retail shop, where blooms share space with design classes and a few hand-picked goodies. Look for pieces including a design collaboration with local ceramic artist Angela Venarchik – we couldn't resist the ingenious Convertible Vase, which transforms to perfectly fit a lush bouquet or those last few spindly stems.
