Review:

If you want to avoid the rules and rigidness of formal floristry, Jane Durbridge will show you how in this beautifully illustrated book, the sumptuous cover being a taster for what is to come. Accompanied by style writer Antonia Swinson and photographer Polly Wreford, she offers simple, inspirational ideas for simple containers, using simple, easily available flowers and foliage. A stem of cherry blossom cut from the garden, a single rose, a bunch of tulips or ranunculus, miraculously transformed into artfully simple, chic arrangements. Using vases and bowls as plain as old bottles or as elegant as a crystal vase, she demonstrates the ease with which you can transform a room or dinner setting. Utilising materials as diverse as cellophane and translucent gel, she shares her innovative, often quirky, designs and knowledge to make truly "Simple Chic Flowers" with which to adorn your home. - Lucy Watson
