This year our studio was selected to be part of the biennial Come Home to Lakewood Home Tour. We opened our studio and the petit parc to over 1000 visitors as they spent the afternoon admiring the secret garden, getting to know our team and our work.
Each tour location was provided with a floral designer for the event, and we were delighted to work with Lakewood florist Vase 2 Vase. Jeff over at V2V designed simple arrangements for our desks and shelves, as well as a floral masterpiece for the studio “lounge” which included brussel sprouts, orchids, a baby eggplant and many more unique elements. Thanks you guys, you are truly talented floral creatives!
Our parc was given a little face lift by area landscaper, Matt Gaydos of Gardens by Gaydos. The many white pansies and fall mums that were planted greeted the visitors as they entered our petite parc. Thanks Matt for all your help; you did a great job!
Big thanks goes out to “friends of Chartreuse;” Amber and Gretchen for helping guide guests through the parc and the office space. We are lucky to have you both as wonderful; friends!
Lastly, thank you to the Lakewood Historical Society for including us in your awesome event. Your volunteers were very professional and no detail went unnoticed. We know how much hard work goes into planning an event like this. You should be very proud of yourselves…congrats!
When our Madison Avenue neighbors, architectural firm AODK, invited us over for a summertime lunch gathering, we couldn’t be more thrilled.
An opportunity to visit their impressive rooftop patio for a noon break of lunchtime refreshments and creative conversation is definitely a treat. We all enjoyed catching up on each other’s current projects and summer plans while absorbing some serious Vitamin D.
Many thanks to the gentlemen at AODK for a lovely afternoon!
Now that summer is upon us, we’ve been prepping for the second year of the Chartreuse studio garden. This years seedlings are a mix of colorful zinnias and radishes that we have started in one of our windowsills. We’re looking forward to nurturing them from little sprouts to green giants. Stayed tuned to the blog for their progress as the days of summer grow.
How excited are you for a long holiday weekend? We sure are. Just having a little fun here in the studio and getting ready for the upcoming Memorial Day celebrations.
Have a great weekend everyone!
We at Chartreuse would like to invite you to Banyan Tree this Friday, May 11 from 6-8pm where our Underground Cards will be making their Tremont Art Walk debut.
Every month Banyan Tree selects an area artist or designer to share their work in the boutique during the monthly art walk. When asked, we jumped at the opportunity to partner with Banyan Tree to show off the greeting card collection. We also thought it would be a great way to enjoy an evening in Tremont, enjoying springtime shopping and visiting with our clients and friends.
Please stop by and take a look at all of the great new spring/summer items at Banyan Tree, including their latest collection of Figwood fashions. The entire collection is both stylish and very comfortable.
Banyan Tree is located at 2242 Professor Ave across the street from Dante. We hope to see you there!
