About Our Book

DECORATE WITH FLOWERS is a unique collaboration between international bestselling interiors author and stylist Holly Becker of the award-winning design blog, decor8, and the talented Leslie Shewring, product designer, photographer and stylist. This stunning book with original full-color photography offers advice on selecting, combining and arranging flowers to best complement your decor. Decorate with Flowers contains a host of exciting ideas separated into eight gorgeous styles showing flowers in relaxed, casual homes alongside those with some serious panache. Whether you are looking to invigorate a neutral interior or complement your already colorful space, you’ll find a host of creative ideas in this unique book.

Holly and Leslie take a relaxed approach to floral design and, as stylists, they openly share tricks of the trade, including ways to experiment and get playful with flowers to create arrangements that are uncomplicated and inexpensive without sacrificing style. With step-by-step projects and crafting ideas showing how to adapt and decorate containers in a creative way with ribbons and trims, paint, string and fabric, you will learn not only how to arrange flowers like a stylist but the importance of placing them in the right container, and where. They also offer charming suggestions for creating pretty and approachable floral decorations for entertaining at home, from tea parties to cocktails with friends.

Whether you want to make the most of freshly picked blooms from the garden, or you crave to put your personal stamp on the more generic per-packaged bunch from the local market, Decorate with Flowers removes the intimidation from floral arranging, leaving you inspired and excited to work more freely with flowers and containers in a spirit of exploration and creativity.
