Here at Ray White New Farm we love supporting local business. We find it fascinating to understand who the people are that make up the business and how they got to where they are today.
We have had a chat to the lovely Maryrose Loff who is the creative talent behind Lillipollen. Here is her story and where the Lillipollen journey began.
Tell us a little bit about your background?
In thebeginning I started my studies in Fine Art and Interior Design and found myself drawn to nature and the beauty of floristry. This is howLillipollen was born.

Lillipollen is an award winning, studio based florist. Working in Brisbane’s eclectic hot spot Teneriffe, we take our inspiration from the world around us as we design and style gorgeous florals that match eachclients unique vision.
What does a typical day at work involve for you?
We are early birds, hand selecting flowers every morning. We like to source our flowers daily to ensure we are delivering only the best and the freshest blooms in the industry.
What would be your dream creative project?
We have recently taken on a few projects working withbeautiful designed gardens and courtyards. Predominantly working with potted gardens and living walls. We would love to work on some more of these creative projects. They are so beautiful, timeless and rewarding.
How would you best describe your creative aesthetic?
Fresh and innovative, with a focus on sculptural design.

What and where was the last great meal you ate in Brisbane?
With places like Primal Pantry and Beccofino being ourneighbours we are so spoilt for choice where we work. If we had to choose tho it would have to be a beautiful curry at our friends theHimmalayan Café onBrusnwick Street.
Where would we find you on a typical Saturday morning?
Usually dashing to get our early morning coffee fix somewhere around New Farm before starting to prepare the flowers and styling for a beautiful event or wedding in Brisbane.
