Having fresh flowers in the house is an unbeatable treat. They bring life and character to a room, but how do you make sure they look their best and last more than a day or two?
Modern flowers should reflect today's trend for simple, relaxed living and there is a knack to making them look beautifully casual rather than stiffly strangled by the vase.
101 Ways With Flowers is packed with stylish, creative and, above all, easy ideas for flower arrangements - everything from combining different colour and flower shapes to making the best use of vases.
The book is divided into 8 sections covering different styles, all achievable with the minimum of materials and no special floristry skills. Beautiful full colour photos accompany each idea and the laid-back style is the perfect match for modern interiors. And if you think life's just too short for flower arranging, turn straight to the special section on quick and easy arrangement ideas that can all be achieved in under five minutes.
