'Floral Alchemy' - Vicki Kerr

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

My amazing friend Vicki Kerr has spent the last 3 years writing this glorious book, I am so thrilled and proud to have it in my store. Vicki writes of her book... "The focus of this book is to show flowers standing on their own.  It is a combination of elements that I believe compliment flowers, and that I love... diverse paper stocks, fabrics, wallpapers, botanical illustrations, vases and sculptures.  In combining all these aspects I hope we have produced something that is beautiful to look at, to have and to give."

   'frida kahlo'

Born in Adelaide to a creative family Micaela began her small business of Mid Century furniture restoration whilst living overseas.  It combined her love of vintage textiles, wallpaper and imagery with the good bones and design of 1950's and 60's retro furniture.
After moving home and starting a family, her creative limits had to be compromised so she created Boneyard Trader and turned her attention to small works of vintage imagery and photography that were hand printed onto timber and ceramic tiles. 
Micaela's current pieces are inspired by iconic imagery of Mexico mixed with vintage roses, art deco and tropical foliage collaged and mounted on plywood to create bohemian wall decor and simple side tables full of vibrant colour and pattern.
