Florets - Floral Quote by Alethea Harampolis and Jill Rizzo of Studio Choo



"When it comes to color, the rule is don't follow the rules. Use what you like, try new things, and welcome the happy accident. We tend to favor hues that lie close to each other on the color wheel rather than opposite, so our arrangements usually end up with subtle, blended palettes rather than starkly contrasting ones. Color is a very personal choice, though, so keep an open mind when selecting your palette. Combine a few blooms in your hand to see what they look like together before adding anything to the vase."

I very much like the quote, and the photo is very inventive with its combination of elements, both delicate and sturdy.

Your imagination is always so inspiring. I like the idea of giving the unexpected a try. Playing with colors can be so much fun!
