Sold. Colourful flowers help sell the home
It is not often that a client gives you free reign on a design project, but that is exactly what happened when I was asked to fill a high-end house with beautiful flowers in anticipation of the client selling the house. The job was a designer’s dream. I started by using in-season flowers to create large, dramatic arrangements placed throughout the home. The only real restraint was time. My approach was to take direction from the English-country style of the house and the French-provincial furnishings and translate it into the florals. I took inspiration from the floral wallpaper and curtains and made them come to life.
My team was on-site all day where we created six huge arrangements including the one in the main entrance hallway. This one was close to five feet tall and equally as wide. We used foxtail lilies at their full, four-foot height. It was the largest arrangement I have ever made. In fact, we had to build it in the back of the ATV so we could ensure it was transported safely to the house!
From the owner’s garden, we incorporated agapanthus and delphinium. You can also see mini green hydrangea, coral charm peony (only available two times a year), butterfly hydrangea, lady’s mantle and astrantia from my own garden.
