While Paula Pryke's floral designs are acclaimed for creating moods and setting the tone for memorable events, this is the first book where she focuses exclusively on beautifying the home. Flower arrangements are a form of interior decoration or stage setting, and this very personal book is about enhancing your life with flowers - every day.
Paula Pryke is acclaimed for creating innovative and bold floral designs for memorable events and special occasions. In her latest book, she demonstrates that the same ideas and techniques she uses for grand floral objets d’art can be applied to create easy, inexpensive, and modern floral arrangements to decorate the home. Aimed at people who are passionate about flowers, whether experts or novices, this book showcases inspirational designs to enhance and enrich the home each and every day.
Pryke includes recommendations for flowers that suggest abundance but which have an extended vase life that saves both time and money. She also includes advice on having a cutting garden, which she sees as a natural extension of the revival of interest in growing edibles. With tips for selecting varieties in order to provide a constant supply of material for arrangements, Pryke also explores adapting foliage, branches, and other found materials to better link home and garden.
