From florist and founder of Tin Can Studios Ingrid Carozzi, a guide to creating floral arrangements that will complement your unique style and taste
Flowers are classic, timeless design elements that enliven your home and your life. Flower arrangements can act as an extension of your style and your tastes, complementing and accenting the aesthetic in your home. Ingrid Carozzi brought us beautiful arrangements in her first book, Handpicked, and is now offering even more tips and techniques to bring the joy of flowers into your space in new and fresh ways.
Flowers by Design focuses on creating unique and beautiful floral arrangements that fit into and complement the overall look and feel of your home. More minimal tastes? There's a floral bouquet for that. Ikebana-inspired? There's an arrangement for that. Planning an outdoor garden party? Of course, there are plenty of beautiful flowers to enhance the outdoors. Through her experience, Carozzi has developed an exceptional list of designers, influencers, and artists that she works with. Using their backgrounds and homes as inspiration, she provides a number of floral recipes that you can create at home. The contributors utilize their own spaces as the setting for seeing these arrangements in place, offering plenty of ideas for what you can do on your own.
