Our own personal style can be described as natural, eclectic, free-flowing, bohemian, sustainable, and relaxed. Most of the time, we are covered in dog hair and dirt.

Greenlion started as a garden design company and after doing the flowers for a dear friend’s wedding we became a flower and garden design company. Having a background in gardens helped us have an eye for unique combinations and palettes in our work. We were featured in Martha Stewart Weddings in 2015, which was great for our company.

Our aesthetic is very gardenesque: flowy, natural, and a bit unruly. As gardeners, we are both inspired by how plants look in gardens together – the textures, movement, inconsistencies, and palettes. Our floral work evokes the garden as we use so much from our gardens to create our floral pieces. Having a studio in Newport, we are inspired by the beautiful historic seaside town. The doorways alone, patina on bricks, shades of the water, historic gardens and the unique waves of people that pass through. Oh and the awesome locals!

We love connecting with our clients over design and translating what’s in people’s minds through our style and abilities. Getting to create for people and interpret nature with them is so inspiring. Also talking about our dogs, their dogs, and dogs in general.

Through Instagram, we showcase our work and are lucky that Kim dabbles in photography. She often takes images of work, doggies, and lives for our feed. We also get so many wonderful images from working with so many talented photographers.

Rhode Island has an amazing community of creatives. We are endlessly inspired and pushed creatively by the talent that surrounds us. There are incredible musicians, floral designers, painters, masons, landscape architects, interior designers, and photographers. The list goes on and on of the talent we are surrounded by in our very small, but amazing state.”
