SEASONAL COLOURS AND TRendy flowers: BALANCED SOBRIETY
Balanced sobriety is all about a purism of design, inspired mainly by the light-coloured woods, matt brass, and shiny black surfaces of a Japanese aesthetic which finds its expression in restrained natural tones.
The colours range from pure white to rose gold, stone grey, a deep bordeaux red and cool black. Darker natural colours such as, stone grey and cool black, contrast well with the light colours of the seasonal winter flowers. To finish it off you can always add some greens, for example you can use some Moss the fill up the gaps.
Yet, the natural brown colour palette of wood can also easily be combined with this trend. To make the whole floral arrangement in balance, add some deep bordeaux red to the Christmas items such as Christmas Baubles or red Hippeastrum.
THREE DIFFERENT STYLES OF NATURAL MATERIALS
Based on the trends, Meko Hulschebos created an inspirational assortment. For example, this year they used a diverse range of natural materials such as, willow, wood, zinc and glass. We picked out our three favourite styles: glass, wood and stone.
STYLE #1 GLINSTERING GLASS
The design of this arrangement sits in a beautiful pedestal glass with at the bottom a layer of sand in Christmas red. To make the arrangement more in balance a thicker layer of moss is placed on top of that. A cute small Hippeastrum bulb, a baby pine cone and a wooden twinkling star are added to finish off the arrangement.
Red accents contrasts well with the darker green and brown colours.
STYLE #2 STYLISH WOOD
Accents within the design include, the contrasting colours of the wood and green moss. No artificial products are added, creating a minimalistic effec. Yet, very stylish.
The different shades of wood create a playful effect in this arrangement.
STYLE #3 STUNNING ZINC
Accents within the design include, different types of Nobilis and other natural materials. This arrangement is lovely to place on your counter to attract customers. Welcome the upcoming holiday season with something unique.
