9780060592752: Flowers by Design

Who do Kate Moss and Jefferson Hack call on to do the flowers for the Paris launch of Another Magazine? Why Jeff Leatham of course...Flowers are THE new element in interior design. Jeff's philosophy of flower display is very simple: he eschews oasis and wire and the trappings of 'unnatural' creations - tipping flowers at unusual angles to reveal their inner beauty, or the structure of the stems, or submerging them so that the blooms are magnified by the vase and the water. Here, for the first time is a book that shows you how to create a stunning relationship between flowers and your interiors. Jeff links colour, fabrics and textures of furniture to the choice of flower used - explaining how to display them and what they should be displayed in. Discover how to use flowers to lift dark rooms; learn how to make flowers appear inviting in large, small or narrow spaces; master the art of creating floral conversation pieces. Three easy-to-follow chapters ('Simple Pleasures'; 'Deeper, Darker and More Dangerous' and 'Behind Closed Doors') contain inspirational ideas for all rooms and occasions plus essential accents and details. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photography this striking book will inspire the creation of cutting-edge floral designs in their own home.
