Flowers are a wonderful addition to the designers palette. I have never been very arty and I struggle to make my home look more than just acceptably modern and tidy. By magazine standards, the interior is rather basic, not a lot has been done to update the decor – one new lick of paint all round in March five years ago and that was the first from moving in 8 years before that! So I’m not known for being overly creative. However, I have discovered the joy of buying flowers at my local market and arranging them in large colourful displays. I ave been much inspire in my design from helping out at a local heritage house. They’re well known for their English country garden setting and every duty day is improved greatly upon seeing the fantastic bouquets on display in the great hall. Whenever they host weddings at the Hall, the flowers are part of the service supplied in the hire fee. Each bride has several colourways to choose from and I have learned much from hovering near the massive vases . .. . Easily an aid to the iterior design of our houses and this is one way to bring life to a room without vast expense.
