Unruly Things Floral Design
The color green brings the balancing influence of nature to all floral styling as the control color. Flowers in hot, bright colors call for heavy, dark green floliage with texture for balanced saturation of color with harmony. Flower pallets with dark colors need bright acid greens to create spotlights of illuminating color for outstanding drama. Pastel colors come alive with soft highlights of green with texture. The feathering of green among pale floral material creates the perfect background for the most precious of flowers to look naturally radiant and lushly romantic.
Expermint, have fun...mix and match textures, colors and varieties. There are no real rules in floral design...the only rule is to reflect the delighful beauty of nature.
