THE TALE OF "BOUCAN"
For this third portrait, we met up with not one but two Brusselaires. It was a gloomy morning and after weeks of rainy fall weather we felt a bit of despair. Little did we know that on that very day, Clara and Elodie would take all of our blues away. Cause at Boucan you do not just get a bouquet of flowers or a ceramic vase, with it comes joy, energy and lightness to cheer up your mood and your space.
The moment we opened their door and stepped in to their vibrant little shop, we suddenly felt some of our heaviness drop. A universe full of bright hues and funky shapes, full of flowers and ceramics, the perfect escape. Our attention was drawn by a bright sound that filled up the room, a contagious melodie of laughter that made our own smile bloom. If there is something at Boucan even more joyous than their objects and bouquets, it must be the duo that owns the place.
And so that morning we learned a bit more about how all that wonder is made. Elodie arranged the flowers, and Clara worked the clay. Both working with ingredients coming from the earth and soil, transformed into wonderful gifts that will brighten up your soul.
