Sights & Sounds: Galerie Navy
Common Discourse is a project designed to help others (and ourselves) think through creativity, focus, and intentional work—from Alex Tan & Alice Otieno.
Every Tuesday we share words from a few ideas, a quote from somebody else, and links worth sharing. On Fridays we invite a guest to share images from their camera roll and a sound that resonates with them. Words from the journal will come at least twice a month.
Galerie Navy is a flower arrangement and concept store owned by Julia Duong, a multidisciplinary creative living between London and Berlin. She’s created arrangements for designers such as Wales Bonner, Prada and Kiko Kostadinov, and for events at London Fashion week and Dover Street Market.
For Julia, Galerie Navy exists as a space to channel creative freedom without limitations, as well as visualise and ideate through various concepts—all expressed through the delicate form of flowers.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how much beauty is widely accessible to us when we pause, take stock of what surrounds us, and that which is freely given to us by the natural world. Coming across Julia’s work served as a reminder to appreciate that gift even more.
Here’s what she shared with us this week!
