Florist: Bleuet Coquelicot in Paris



Bleuet Coquelicot: A florist in Paris Photography by Mimi Giboin for Gardenista.
I love walking into a florists and having a browse and a good sniff around although I dont always feel comfortable doing so... I saw a picture of Bleuet Coquelicot on Pinterest and tracked down the original article on Remodlista...

Bleuet Coquelicot is a florist in Paris owned by a gentleman who goes by the name of "Tom des Fleurs." Tom studied Art curation but got a job in a florist after school and now owns and runs the business himself. There are no other employees in the shop as Tom does not want to ruin the ambiance of the store.

Tom Built the shop interior himself mainly from objects he already ownded and it took two and a half months to put it all together.

The original article says that he won't sell a plant to a person who he knows will not take care of it,I love that!Also the fact that he doesn't sell the plant before having had it for a year himself shows that he really loves "his"plants.What a special place and what a special person,thank you for sharing!
