" In the shop, if a vase with yellow roses is accidentally sat alongside a jug of white stock and a jar of pinks my heart will sink. On the other hand, if a bucket of lilacs is sat beside a bunch of magnolias the day will surely be good. When buying flowers it is easiest to set a palette and carry it through the house, this way you can always change your mind on what goes where. In many homes the backdrop is neutral, with accents of colour coming from fabric, art or flowers, and this makes the job of sticking to a colour theme much easier. Of course, colour is subjective (I struggle with red) but ultimately colour is there to be explored."
