The Flower School takes you by the hand and expertly guides you step-by-step through design principles and twenty-five floral projects to empower you to create your own gorgeous floral arrangements for your home, gatherings, celebrations and for pleasure.
If you've ever been swept up admiring some garden blooms, or a flower stand at your local market, and wondered, just how do I transform these raw materials into floral displays that elicit a sense of wonder in their admirers, then allow award-winning floral designer Joseph Massie to show you how, as he shares his knowledge, recipes and personal tips for creating with flowers, with intention, thought and skill.
Tumbling cascades of peonies and exquisitely arranged vases of unfurled garden roses are an everyday pleasure for Joseph. Whilst creating breathtaking marvels from armfuls of blooms is what Joseph does daily, his true passion is sharing his knowledge to encourage and inspire absolutely anyone who wants to work with flowers to be able to do so – and do it well. Let yourself be empowered by the learning process of skills, techniques and principles that will enable you to build a strong floral design foundation so as to be able to indulge in your own floral pleasures or flower-filled career.
jungalow: decorate wild
Justina Blakeney’s new book is her biggest, boldest, and most beautiful volume yet, filled with irresistible style, original patterns, and artwork—lushly photographed by Dabito. In each chapter, Justina shares her distinctive point of view on everything design fans want to know—how to make bold choices with color and pattern, how to take cues from nature, how to authentically glean inspiration from their heritage and travels, how to break rules, and all the other paths to truly begin to decorate wild. Along the way, Justina also shares personal narratives, practical advice, and nuanced insight into how she lives in her own space—how she reconnects with nature, how she plays and stays inspired, how she gives herself permission to feel free and wild, and how readers can do the same. Jungalow is the term coined by Justina for the brand that embodies her wild, but cozy and homey, style. Copycats abound, but there is no other book like this one—offering Justina’s authentic, encouraging voice and approachable, signature style.
