A sober and modest style as a reaction to the daily rat race. To create this style we make use of unpretentious shapes and use powerful colours and qualitative materials. The art is to find simplicity without the arrangement becoming dull.
Use sleek geometric shapes in calm and balanced compositions against uncompromising, yet not too intrusive, backgrounds. This architectural feeling fits well within an urban style. Choose complementary accessories, but do not overdo the use of extra’s to prevent the presentation from becoming tawdry. The bottom line is that the presentation feels honest and transparent. Plants have an important role in these trends; therefore one of our trends is entirely comprised of a plant arrangement. Take notice of the exceptional colour use in the bouquets; especially classic pink combined with brown brings a whole new perspective to the use of colours in bouquets.
Corresponding to the overall trend, the materials are modest – yet of high quality. Both natural and man-made materials are used. Cork, painted and natural wood, ceramics, (coloured) glass, naturally decorated glass and simple textiles such jute and cotton.
The geometrics are strongly emphasized in the shapes; they have a bare boned appearance. The trend derives its architectural look from the combination of these shapes. Further improve your presentations through the arrangement of the shapes and colour contrasts.
The patterns are quite simple and consist of geometric shapes: diamond, stripes, squares, hexagons, blocks and circles.
The used colours are calm, not too noisy, yet full of contrast without appearing frigid. The combination of classic pink and light wood and cork accents ensures that this style, despite the colour contrasts and sleek lines, remains friendly. Besides light and dark grey, we included dove blue, light yellow, marsala brown, forest green and pale (classic) pink.
The backgrounds enforce the architectural character, Use contrasting levels of line and block patterns. A rear wall of cork, or cork decorated wall-paper, brings some joy in the appearance. If this background is very noticeable, keep the presentation in front of it somewhat less intrusive.
A tranquil arrangement with a variety of products clustered together in distinguishable groups. The elevation differences attend a gracious character to the bouquet.
The strong yet organic lines are the big eye catcher in this bouquet. The Calla’s’ powerful yellows emphasize the used shapes. The materials are plain and simple and exist of only Calla’s and Aspidistra leaves. This arrangement shows us that we don’t need much to create a special and powerful bouquet.
Arrangement three is a plant arrangement formed around the Cyperus. This swamp plant is placed in a variety of glasses. The plants are attached to birk and Polygonem stems in a variety of ways to prevent fanning out of the plant and to preserve an upward line across the arrangement.
