COLOURS FOR YOUR ARTWORK
If you have a colourway preference, do pop it in the notes and we will do our best, however we can’t guarantee exact matches; we pick the flower colours to compliment your chosen frame colour
Every order is custom made and can take 2-3 weeks to reach you.
With each order we receive, we carefully and intentionally select the perfect colours and perfect flowers, to shape and build each letter for your personalised artwork.
Artworks are then beautifully framed and hand painted by our local artisan framer, Megan.
Each frame is expertly hand made using solid ash, that is delicately sanded and prepared for painting. Our artworks are set back from the glass, using a small hand cut spacer frame to create a more modern look, whilst further protecting the artwork.
We offer a curated colour palette of 6 paint colours for your frame, which you can select from for your artwork.
We use Farrow and Ball paints and then a high durable, dead-flat-matt varnish, that protects against fingerprints, scuffing and colour fading.
We use a 99% UV filter protection glazing inplace of glass, to limit fading and reduce risk of breakage.
FRAME COLOUR OPTIONS
Bancha - A deep mid-century modern green. (This most compliments soft pinks, neutral tones and browns.)
Crimson Red - A rich, deep warm pink. (This looks great against dark and patterned walls. It works well with dark and pale flowers that have a slight pinkiness to them.)
Vert de Terre - A delicate greenish-blue. (This is an easy cooling tone that would also be perfect for a baby’s room.)
Churlish Green - A vibrant yellow green, that is almost chartreuse. (This looks brilliant against pale walls, such as setting plaster and adds a pop to any room.)
Setting plaster - A soft dusty setting plaster. (This is great for adding a touch of pink without it being too obvious. This is a great neutral base and perfect for a new baby’s room.)
Railings - A soft black with blue. (This dramatic colour draws in the eye to the artwork and does fit beautifully with most colour themes.)
We offer a bespoke framing service, where you can have a frame style of your choice made especially for you. We also offer bespoke colours for your frame, where we can match any colours that you would like. Additional charges for these two services will apply.
We rely on the accuracy of the information that you provide at the time of your order and it is your responsibility to check and confirm that all details you provided, are correct for your requirements.

Floralia; An ancient Roman festival dedicated to Flora, goddess of flowers, spring and blossoming plants, a celebration of the cycle of life, where flowers decked the temples and everyone wore bright colourful clothes.
All artworks are made using naturally grown flowers and plants that have been lovingly, grown and carefully selected, for their beauty and colour.
Each flower and or plant is hand-picked for it’s appearance and is carefully pressed to preserve this.
We choose to use the old-fashioned technique of pressing flowers in books, because we love waiting to see what surprises our books have in store for us and we enjoy the feelings of nostalgia it creates.
We use unexpected colours that ignite the senses, leaving you uplifted and transported to magic spaces.
We work the flower colours to compliment your chosen frame colour.
We select the perfect flowers to shape and build each letter, for your personalised artwork, set onto a superior acid free cartridge paper, where each letter is meticulously fixed into place.
As we create each unique piece, we weave beautiful intentions and blessings into each design, believing that the messages inscribed, are everlastingly held in the artworks.
* KEEP OUT OF DIRECT SUNLIGHT *
* DO NOT PLACE OR HANG ABOVE A RADIATOR OR HEAT SOURCE *
We have designed these artworks to stay with you for a long-long time and so we strongly recommend that the artworks are kept out of direct sunlight to preserve their colours.
We have used a 99% UV filter protection in the glazing to limit fading and extend your artwork’s longevity.
Always keep away from radiators, the temperature changes can cause the flowers to become brittle.
Maison Floralia was born out of wanting to share something beautiful and reconnect to family and friends, when we were limited to staying in our homes, due to lockdown.
With little to do but focus on the present moment, the escapism of nature was the calling that created Maison Floralia.
It began with a blanket of daisies, along with hot yellow buttercups marking the start of Spring, which overnight we appeared to have grown a full meadow of, in our back garden in London; in previous years we had been too busy to have even seen.
Here, we witnessed a pure expression of joy and beauty, in those little wild flowers and we wanted to capture and spread a piece of it, to those we knew may be finding lockdown difficult, or just to remind them that they were loved. It made sense that if this expression of life was happening in our back garden, then it was something to share with loved ones, as a reminder that better times would come.
Several months of growing our own flowers, alongside picking the wild ones from our garden, a lovingly created baby name artwork for our new niece and a selection of personalised hand pressed flower cards began to unfold; designed to share that expression of Spring and here we are today...seeing where this essence of joy will take us!
