A new book of floral inspiration to be published in May 2019 has been written by Anna Potter, famed florist and founder of Swallows & Damsons – the little Sheffield flower shop with over 180K Instagram followers.

With stunning photography by India Hobson – who is one half of influencer duo HaarkonTHE FLOWER FIX offers 26 beautiful projects to inspire floral wellbeing in the home.

Its publishers write, “With a few simple stems, found items such as twigs and dried fruits and any assortment of containers, florist Anna Potter from Swallows & Damsons shows how simple it is to bring a floral boost into your home. Here are tailor made combinations of flowers to set things straight: they might add the finishing touches to a last minute supper, brighten up the end of the weekend, or simply soothe and calm the mind.”

Founded in 2008 and despite its enormous global online following, Swallows & Damsons remains a little flower shop in the heart of its community while making international statements and creating content for big brands. Known for bringing an unexpected wild feel to floristry, Anna moves beyond the confines of fresh blooms and incorporates natural products and curiosities into her work; celebrating imperfections, subtlety in colour and form with inspiration from the rich darkness of Dutch still life paintings.
