Foliage Versus Flowers


A Stylish Alternative


The next time you’re about to liven up your home with a bunch of fresh flowers, think about going foraging in your neighbourhood for some striking foliage or branches to bring indoors instead.   Group vases together and use a different shape, colour or textured leaves, branches, twigs and vines in each vase for an interesting contrast. 

Sometimes using one large minimal leaf in a vase is enough to add some life force to the space.  Even when choosing indoor plants look for different colours, patterns and textures in the plants foliage and unusual form in their habit.  Get some really striking plant characters!  Even bare, wintry tree branches and vines in different vessels can make for a striking style statement.
