Welcome to The Seedling

Welcome To The Seedling

For as long as I can remember I have loved stories. I love reading, writing and sharing stories about living our best lives. I'm curious about life and style and I know you are too. 

The Seedling is a celebration of the seasons and permission to love each day and week as it passes despite the busy lives we all lead. The Seedling will live as an evergreen - forever growing on my website and will share ideas to inspire, create & nurture through interviews, features and reviews across lifestyle - from planning, planting and arranging life-enhancing flowers to travel, wellness, interiors, style, cooking and so much more. I will also share what is inspiring me each month -
from plants to podcasts, flowers to fashion.
Each month we will focus on one flower in season - this month is Tulips! My love runs deep. Each month we will also highlight another tactile trend that inspires me and this month it's all about stripes - from deckchairs to napkins to cashmere sweaters, I've rarely met a stripe I didn't like! 

This month of May is all about how we live - a former fashion editor who now runs a horse ranch in Colorado; embracing the seasons after a decade living in the tropics; 5 mins with the brilliant Nigel Slater plus a delicious spring recipe; discovering the incredible world of bespoke botanical perfumer Ffern and their new Spring 22 launch with Skye Gyngell; some nurturing thoughts from yoga teacher and writer Nicole Croft; travel dreaming of Sri Lanka and lots more…

I hope you enjoy The Seedling as much as we enjoy putting it together.
Please do let me know what you love and what you want to see more of at studio@willowcrossley.com. 

For now, let's embrace SPRING! My favourite time of year and don't we all deserve the promise of fresh new flowers, longer evenings and time together outdoors. 

With love, Willow xx
