The ability to work with and support local businesses is one of the opportunities that photography has afforded me. In today's post, I introduce you to The Design Practice (DP): your interior and exterior design partners based in Harare, Zimbabwe. The DP team is a multifaceted family oriented business that tackles issues to do with personalised design elements for interior and exterior environments based on the clients needs.
The DP exterior team have a myriad of plants and flowers that give your home and/or business the 'lift' that it deserves. They surely do become your exterior partners! Yes, this is a #shamelessplug for a business that truly delivers both in terms of product and service.
Meet the lovely Edith, the exterior design "guru" of DP. I worked with Edith whose creativity and attention to detail completely permeates this nursery and her work. As we walked through the nursery, Edith was keen to share her thought process when working with clients - listen and then amaze them Erene - is what she said in a nutshell (shh don't tell her I told you!). She literally took 'nothing' and used her passion for gardening and turned it into a garden filled with colors, smells and so much life! She took her 'green thumb' to new levels and created this thriving business in the heart of Harare! There is nothing like a #girlboss and this one - ladies and gentlemen is on fire!
Welcome to the plant paradise! When I first walked onto the DP nursery, I was blown away (but don't take my word for it - keep scrolling)! I did not know where to begin snapping because everything was so rich in color and she had placed so many hidden gems amidst the plants. It felt as though you were in The Secret Garden (did you guys ever watch that movie?). The nursery was a true reflection of its founder - vibrant! I love how organized the whole place is. All plants were clearly labelled - to help the novices like myself out. Edith talked about how she always knows which plant suits which client. She almost has a sixth sense when it comes to making these recommendations!
Walking through the nursery evoked a sense of serenity that I completely credited to Edith's executed vision that is this nursery. The melange of the signs, plants and exterior 'accessories' made the place have an air of whimsy!
Now, a photoshoot is never truly wrapped without portraits of my clients absorbed in their work!
All I can say is that you have to stop by! If only to experience the serenity and vibrancy of the nursery! Edith and her wonderful team will definitely take the time to help you figure it all out!

A tout à l'heure
