Founder of botanical styling company, geo-fleur
Sophie lives in York with her sausage dog, Luna. Here she is photographed in the Walthamstow Village home of her business partner Sally Thompson and husband Chris, where the seeds of geo-fleur were sown.
"Sally’s home is a mix of eclectic vintage pieces with some modern twists. We both like pops of colour, especially through house plants, but are also slightly obsessive with monochrome minimalism."
“Plants are so great in a home as the different leaf textures and shapes can instantly transform a space. There is also a lot of research done by NASA that proves that having a house filled with plants is beneficial, as certain plants purify the air.
We love filling bookcases and shelving with plants. Some of the trailing plants, such as the string of hearts or fishbone cactus, are reasonably low maintenance and just need watering once a week.”
