Design, Journal


An everyday exploration of colour and form, flower arranging is a lesson in nature, symmetry and design all at once.

The vessel and its contents converse through size, colour, texture and shape; one is not distinct from the other. Here’s how we approached a winter bouquet in our Memphis vase.

In the colder months, we love these darker autumnal tones complemented by the softness of neutrals in the same family.

With its tall body and wide mouth, Memphis is ideal for a large statement arrangement. Still, it has a curious, lighthearted personality, so we gave the foliage some lightness with airy textures.

Finally, we took advantage of the symmetry of Memphis as a solid foundation to give our arrangement even more interest by making the foliage sit slightly uneven.

If in doubt, look to nature for inspiration.
