Today I am delighted to share that I was recently asked to do a London event flowers demonstration at Farrow & Ball in Battersea in celebration of their new range of gorgeous colours.

I was incredibly excited and flattered that they got in touch, and that they enjoyed my use of colour enough to contact me. I love working with colourful flowers because simply put, I feel it brings out the best in me. It makes me happy, free and alive. It feels contagious as my clients then trust me and I become more creative. I love to reflect the mood of my clients in my creative work, without limitations. Working with Farrow & Ball, I had the freedom to florally interpret their new colours which was wonderful.

At this event, I shared how to make paint palettes come to life in the form of flowers and how to display them, starting an interior design explosion! I particularly loved sharing how to demonstrate confidence in playing with colours, opening an entirely new world. I love using a mix of traditional and modern use of flowers, and showing how exciting it can be to not be afraid to experiment.

 

I firmly believe colour is a very personal thing. It comes from existing colours which can be blended to create others. This is exactly what Farrow and Ball do with their paints and I do with my flowers – creating new atmospheres.

I was delighted with the feedback from the attendees, and the organiser sent me this today:

‘Another huge thank you for everything you did to make Thursday evening such a success, we have had some lovely feedback and the showroom has looked bountiful all weekend!’

At the workshop I shared how textures and colour combinations can greatly affect the style and atmosphere you create, from the simplicity of using one flower colour, onto a mix of colours which reflect tones of a particular paint or to form a complete contrast. Working with a company like Farrow & Ball was wonderful, a company that epitomises style, quality and passion for their product which I believe reflects my own enthusiasm.

Many thanks to Angela Bunt Creative and the Decor Cafe for taking these photos. I’ll share the official photos from the event soon!
