Christine Bloom founded Hedge in 2012 with the mission to bring design to the outdoors. After a couple of years immersed in landscape design, she developed a passion for garden inspired floral arrangements and transitioned into bringing nature indoors with a boutique floral design studio.
Christine is a graduate of the New York Botanical Garden in landscape design and floral design. Always on the lookout for opportunities to develop her skills, she takes regular workshops - most recently with renowned designers, Catherine Muller, Christian Tortu and Ariella Chezar.
Throughout her floral work, Christine loves to bring together the subtle colors of nature, blending shapes and textures with a touch of that “je ne sais quoi” from her native France.
In the summer of 2018, Sarah Shaw joined Hedge to respond to the demands of a busy wedding season - an ideal partnership bloomed with both designers sharing similar values and sense of aesthetics.
A former decorating editor and stylist at House Beautiful Magazine, Sarah received a professional certificate in Floral Design from Flower School NY. She's a self-taught gardener and lover of wildflowers and foraged nature. Sarah has travelled as a freelance floral designer in Connecticut and New York.
Together, Christine and Sarah have a discerning eye for detail and value simplicity. They are inspired by nature and their style adapts to the seasons. They add to their arrangements with their own home grown flowers and greenery and whenever possible support local flower farmers.
