Chrysalis Design Services is a studio floral design business that advocates a strong nurturing human connection to Nature which plays out in the inclusion of plants and flowers in our daily home life, and work environment. The presence of plants and flowers in our daily lives has shown to have profound effects on memory and quality of life and well being. Beyond the life sustaining benefits of oxygen that live plants produce for us, the benefits of beauty and tranquility in our environments is life enhancing, a major source of personal well being. Our work showcases plant material in the full range of its lifecycle from seed to dried states which connects us to Nature’s seasons and botanical life cycle from germination, growth, fertilization/ reproduction to death which aligns with our human experience.
