Sunshine Post :: Sea & Asters

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Hello, dear readers. Inherent in the mission statement of The Bright Side Project is the unspoken belief that to “Do What You Love, Love What You Do” is an absolutely essential component in creating a happy and healthy lifestyle. Every now and then, we will ask our contributors to answer a few short questions on the ideas of happiness, creativity and sunshine. We hope these rays of light help inspire you to find the sunshine in your day, today and everyday.

Today we are honored to introduce you to Monica and James from Sea & Asters.

Please introduce yourself to our readers and explain a little bit about your business.

Hello, my name is Monica. My husband, James, and I are the shop owners of Sea & Asters. Our shop is devoted to tillandsias, terrariums and nature inspired items. We both love to garden and are completely taken with Tillandsias, which I first discovered while studying horticulture. Our shop focus is to create miniature homes to compliment the Tillandsia sculptural form. These homes consist of terrariums, natural plant vessels, modern air plant cubes and wall frames.

We believe that one of the ways to achieve happiness is to “Do what you love, love what you do.” How does this philosophy apply to your life?

We strive to live by this. Life is too short. We are both lucky to have Sea & Asters, which gives us the opportunity to pursue our love of horticulture/design and the ability to share it with others.

Our mission here at The Bright Side Project is to spread sunshine on a daily basis because we firmly that life is (still) beautiful. Where do you find beauty and inspiration?

Everywhere… nature is a huge source but also textile patterns, design blogs, and color boards to name a few.

On a dreary day, what do you do to infuse your life with a little bit of sunshine?

A cup of tea and a Wes Anderson movie.

What are you most grateful for?

James, my family and friends.
