Such Great Heights the label was launched in 2012 by Ryan and Jo, partners in work and life. The pair create stunning heirloom toys, homewares and soft furnishings designed to inspire the imagination.

Fleurs de Nadia love to play on the local, seasonal and sustainable blooms available. An authentic connection to local nature that is found in every arrangement. Floral designs play on seasonal themes, inspired by the interesting forms and shapes of unusual plants. With this in mind, creations merge botanical, floral and vegetable alike to build a design of marvellous vibrancy, colour and variety.
August is such a wonderful month for Adelaide’s Finders Keepers. Blossoms are beginning to show their beauty, cymbidium orchids, poppies, ranunculus, are blooming, local natives and berries are abundant and beautiful this time of year. Make sure you pop by, snap a selfie at the flower wall and discover locally sourced Fleurs, some may be from my garden.
