Flora Sandbergica launch in Finland

We live in a world of rapid densification. Today, half of the people in the world live in metropolitan regions, and in only 30 years’ time, two-thirds of the world population are expected to live in an urban environment. But the more divorced we become from nature and the countryside, the more we long for our origins and a closeness to the source of our food.
With spring just around the corner and the return of the light, so returns our desire to renew our home and make it beautiful. Something is stirring and all of a sudden we feel alive again, like the curious little tulip buds popping up to greet the sun. Here are five ideas on how to develop the BOTANICAL theme in your decorating.
This time of the year we all would like to think that we have green fingers and start runs to the store buying seeds and soil, making big blooming plans for the season. That's natural and part of our nature being a human being. The theme Botanical pops up every year in the spring when the light comes back and hits us with surprise and the promise of the summer to come. But in the recent years something has happened, the expression of Botanical seems to last all year around! And why is that? Read along and I will tell you why!
