Mix It Up

Top trends for Spring/Summer 2018 are mixed botanicals and fragrant garden inspired designs. Creating a look packed full of texture and depth and bursting with colour which emanates what is being grown in the garden is top of the pick list this spring/summer. Blooms that we are loving to create this look include fabulous scented garden roses, veronica, fragrant stocks and rosemary.

Add Colour 

Colours range from bright bold tones bursting with personality to chic muted tones. Colourful candles to add further depth and interest are a huge hit this year.

  • Be original:  I start each and every meeting with a blank piece of paper and design a scheme with my client firmly at the centre.

  • Personalise: I always try to express the personality of each client in the work that I create and the only limit to what is made is your own imagination! 

  • Consider Space: When planning a party or wedding this year, look at the space you are working in and consider adding 1 or 2 key statement pieces. 

  • Add Extra Touches: From here, you can decorate additional areas more modestly and still result in a scheme which will leave a lasting memory with each and every guest!
