Do you suppose she's a wildflower?

No.8 Lifestyle combines my passion for flowers, interiors and an eye for creating something extraordinary and unique.  Bringing floral artistry and botanical magic with a truly personal service is what sets No.8 Lifestyle apart from other businesses.

My professional floristry journey took off in my 40’s, training at college and alongside established florists in London and Hertfordshire.  “Do you suppose she’s a wildflower?” is a quote from Alice In Wonderland and is one that has stayed with me for many years. To me it embodies looking at things differently, creatively and sharing the beauty in everything to enhance our space and life.

Previously I worked as an Executive Assistant for over 20 years, skills which definitely come in very handy when it comes to running a successful business.
