Literally translated from French as ‘rebirth’, Renaissance features delicate butterflies and periwinkles reminding us to reach out for new friendships and let them blossom while fondly remembering the past.
Butterflies are widely considered the most emblematic of animals with many charming associations. They are often associated with allegories of transformation and change and provide a source of luck and stability during times of upheaval, rebirth and renewal. They also bring a sense of playfulness and lightness.
Hannah has brought together some rather beautiful pieces in our latest mood board, with each piece taking inspiration from our Renaissance
'What is there not to love about the Periwinkle flower? From its happy, bright petal shape to its stunning deep hues of pink or blue that adorn their head. Periwinkles are one of the earliest symbols of immortality. The modern interpretation of this suggests we reach out for new friendships and let them blossom while fondly remembering the past. Hold on to the things you cherish for as long as possible. Reach your full potential and achieve your dreams.'Wendy
