Florets - Floral Quote - # 91 - by Jane Packer

White Amaryllis

" When it comes to choosing flowers for the living room, first consider your space. It's essential to select blooms that coordinate with the other colours in the room. Although I usually like to ring the changes, I have to admit that at home I turn to the same old favourites time and time again - dramatic, luxurious red blooms such as roses or amaryllis, largely due to the fact that they are perfectly offset by the moody grey shade of my sitting room walls."

Ingrid, I liked the photograph and Jane Packer's quote. It's a bit like some of us figuring out which colors or styles of clothing best suit us, and playing to those strengths.

Happy weekend to you! xo
