The month of May in Melbourne, looks like this…..
Time to take long meandering walks….
As we transition from Summer to Winter, Autumn provides us with an abundance of materials to incorporate into floral designs.
Not only the rich tapestry of foliage colours and flowers, but the addition of seed pods, ornamental grasses, fruits and berries….
The following arrangements have been influenced by Autumn and its harmonious colours of deep reds, plums, aubergine, dusty pinks, russet, copper, burnt oranges, golden yellows and butterscotch browns….
This stunning arrangement features dahlias, roses, chrysanthemums, scabiosas and sunflowers and the seeded gum, rose hips and vines add further visual interest.
Inspired by works of 18th century British artist Mary Delany, Master perfumers translate these artworks into luxurious fragrances for Nest Fragrances, New York.
Mary Delany began her work at the remarkable age of 72 years!
I enjoyed leafing through this book
Here are a few stunning bottles that were influenced by her artwork….
Complementary Colour Scheme this week is blue and orange….
This colour combination duo is not often in demand,
perhaps because both are strong colours
but when we play with the tones and select contrasting floral and foliage textures,
this can be overcome.
Rich and Sumptuous tones….
