Everybody’ s life is enriched by colour, which both energises and lifts the spirits. What can be a better source than the spectrum of colour that flowers and foliage have to offer? In Living Colour, Paula Pryke’ s fine-tuned sense for wild and wonderful colour mixes – which has made her Britain’ s leading colour florist at work today- is given full rein as she shows how to mix and match key floral palettes with exceptional skill.

Drawing on her recognised talent as a master colourist, Paula explores the impact flower colour has on our living spaces and how we respond to its presence. In the chapter ‘ Inspired by Nature’ , she considers how colour and texture in the natural world can act as your guide, while in ‘ Seasonal Colour Palettes’ we see how our colour choices shift with the seasons. In ‘ Foliage Combinations’ she explains how foliage can tone down or raise the temperature of a display.

Renowned for her innovative use of containers, fabric and all sorts of food material, Paula demonstrates in ‘ Accessory Colour’ the imaginative role these plays in floral art. In ‘ Top Twenty Colours’ , she shares her favourite flower colours, while ‘ Colour Charts’ creates a directory of these colours for easy reference.

Stunningly photographed, Living Colour taps into the current trend for simple flower displays that appear effortlessly modern while at the same time making a dramatic colour statement. It is both a rich sourcebook of ideas for working with colour and an inspirational tool that enables the amateur florist to create displays with visual impact.
