paper trail

November 19, 2019

Anyone who knows me, knows I’m bonkers about flowers. All flowers. I buy fresh blooms almost every week, and keep them ’till the last petals fall. Livia Cetti‘s glorious paper flowers –– hyacinths, roses and ranunculus –– have me thinking that it may not be a bad idea to invest in some more permanent blooms. Her creations are so beautiful and intricate, that they really could be the real thing. It’s such an art form, and the work is painstaking. “Everything is made entirely by hand, every leaf, every petal. There’s a lot of repetitive processes – dyeing, cutting, painting, folding and taping,” says Cetti, whose work adorns shops windows from John Derrian to Dior. Have a little wander around her Bronx home. The details –– flowers and so much more –– are delightful.
