Living Colour

Living Colour

by PaulaPryke (Author), David Loftus (Photographer)


"Living Colour" taps into the trend for simple flower arrangements that appear effortlessly modern while at the same time making a dramatic colour statement. It is about how colour plays a central role in characterising an interior, and how flower colour contributes to this, offering a constantly changing source of interest, which can be added or taken away to suit different moods and occasions. The book uses bright and bold flower shapes to show how to inject vibrant colour and energy into living spaces. It recognises how little confidence people have when introducing sources of colour into the home and demonstrates how to boldly mix-and-match key floral palettes, using nature as its guide together with Paula Pryke's fine-tuned sense for wild and wonderful colour blends.
