Welcome to Bloomscape: A Note from the Founder

Welcome to Bloomscape! We just opened shop and we’re so excited you found us.

Plants and flowers have been a part of my family for a long, long time—five generations back. Growing up in greenhouses meant being surrounded by greenery year round. It could be the middle of February—cold, dry, and dark—but the greenhouse was always lush with plants. I was, and continue to be, amazed how plants can transform any environment, making a space feel alive and vibrant, yet warm and cozy.

This feeling of comfortable coziness is what my Dutch grandparents referred to as “gezellig.” Despite being a fairly difficult word to pronounce in English, gezellig has become our Bloomscape mantra. Our goal is to make it simple and enjoyable to fill your home with plants. We’ve rethought the entire plant supply chain to make sure we give you and your plant the best possible start. We deliver healthy plants, straight from the greenhouse, planted with fresh soil in pots that make caring for them easy.

As a designer and entrepreneur, I’ve learned that great projects start with a compelling idea, tackle a complex problem, and create something simple and beautiful. The path isn’t always straightforward, but building something great always means finding simplicity on the other side of complexity. Based in Detroit, we’re constantly inspired by this city’s rich design history and a community of creators working on deeply meaningful projects. The buildings we work in show us what it takes to stand the test of time, while the plants we care for remind us of what it takes to thrive in all conditions. We hope to build the business of Bloomscape with mindful intention every day.

It’s fitting that we bring Bloomscape to you from Detroit, Michigan on the first day of spring, March 20, 2018. Have a look around and let us know how we can help you craft a fresh, warm, meaningful space with plants.
