If you follow Holly Chapple’s Blog you may have seen the post: From Russia With Love, when four Russians vacationed in America and visited Holly’s shop. You can read the post here.
Holly had a wonderful time hosting Tanya and her friends. After the visit Holly & I chatted and thought it would be fun to interview Tanya of flowerlovers.ru for Flirty Fleurs. Tanya provided such lovely photos, thank you!
Your names: Tanya Liberman & Julie Krivinouk
Your Business name: flowerslovers.ru
Your Location: Moscow, Russia
How did you start your business?
We are two friends who wanted to do something beautiful and inspiring. That’s how we started the flower thing.
How many years have you been in business?
Years! We wish!! We just started four months ago 🙂
What is your design aesthetic?
Simplicity and unexpected combination of flowers – that’s what we do best
What inspires you?
We are inspired by many beautiful things and people. What especially inspires us is positive feedback and enthusiasm of our clients, most of whom become regular customers.
What are the trends, flowers & colors that are unique to your region?
Total lack of taste is a real trend for bouquets in Russia but we try to solve the problem of beautiful flowers for our clients.
Are you a retail shop, studio/warehouse or home based?
We are on-line based when it comes to sales, but we work from home where we keep the cooler with the flowers and all the equipment
Do you offer any services in addition to floral designs?
We just started wedding-planning and design – and enjoy it so much!
What does your toolbox look like?
There’s not much in it: pruner, tape, cord, scissors and craft paper for wrapping
What tool in your toolbox can’t you live without?
It’s really hard to handle flowers without a pruner ))))
What’s your favorite flower?
I love many of them but especially I like when I can combine flowers that are not-really-my-style in some really beautiful bouquet.
