Decorate with flowers...


Decorate with Flowers is the brand new book by interior stylist Holly Becker (decor8) and Leslie Shewell.  I have one of Holly's design books already and find a great source of inspiration.  So when I saw that Holly had collaborated on a book about flowers I was sold!









Holly & Leslie share their relaxed approach to floral design and give us their stylist tricks on how to create beautiful arrangements on a shoe string budget (I like!).  With little craft how to's, step by step instructions they guide the reader through perfect projects from decorating containers with trims, paint etc, to choosing the right container for the job.

And of course there are stunning ideas on arranging flowers that will look like a professional florist has made it.  They offer brilliant suggestions for creating pretty floral decorations to enjoy flowers in your home.

They say...

'Whether you want to make the most of freshly picked blooms from the garden, or you crave to put your personal stamp on the more generic per-packaged bunch from the local market, Decorate with Flowers removes the intimidation from floral arranging, leaving you inspired and excited to work more freely with flowers and containers in a spirit of exploration and creativity.'

I feel this book has come at just the right time, Spring and all.  Plus perfect inspiration for our next Nature in the Home series!  Whoop.  

Decorate with Flowers is due for UK release on 21st March 2014.  For more information, images and details on the book have a look at their website.

  1. I've literally just received an order of Dahlias in the post and I sit down and read about this - and your cutting garden plans for the allotment; like you I'm also hoping to have (a small) cutting garden this year, Hugh and I are fighting for space now. He wants veg and I want flowers! I'm going to be much more committed about joining in with nature in the home too. Looking forward to it!
