I really like the combination of light green, yellow/green or almost chartreuse greens and blooms and white flowers. White flowers are almost too stark in most arrangements, but for some reason, in various shades, blend nicely with chartreuse. I just recently learned that chartreuse got its name from a french liquor made by Carthusian monks since the early 1700’s, how cool is that?
At the last mini-eyeball held at the beach, I made a few arrangements of greens and flowers for the beach house to spruce it up a bit for the guests. This arrangement made of greens that look like clusters of bells (I keep forgetting their name) and casablanca lilies.
They brought a lot of life to a rather plain setting and are offset against black walls, dark grained kamagong tables and neutral colored couches…
…on the coffee table, several large cellum leaves catch the light nicely. The leaves will last a good 3-4 weeks or so, and are an extremely economical way to bring a bit of green into your living spaces.
