Unlike most flower-arrangement books, which rely on expensive and continuously nonseasonal flowers from florists, this book presents an alternative that may be in step with the “back to nature” movement. This is the first volume to showcase easy methods to be inspired by nature’s seasonal bounty and bring that nature into the home through floral arrangements.
From the well known way of life photographer Ngoc Minh Ngo and Nicolette Owen of Brooklyn’s Little Flower School, Bringing Nature Home presents a portfolio of unique and original floral arrangements in an instant inspired by the seasons and the local environment, with sources ranging from farmers’ market offerings to the backyard garden. Presented through lush photography that also showcases the beautiful interiors the arrangements are created for, this is as much a decorating tome as this is a floral-arrangement guide.
A how-to section offers advice at the selection, trimming, and care of the arrangements and on repurposed and unique containers, making this book practical in addition to inspiring.
