I recently created silk arrangements for Mere Bulles Restaurant in Maryland Farms. It was a challenge to design multiple arrangements that a lot of people see every day, would look good in all seasons, and also retain the character of the home in which they would sit. The restaurant is an old plantation home with a traditional historic feel, so real contemporary or minimalist-modern arrangements would look completely out of place.
These two arrangements flank that beautiful gilded mirror above the large fireplace in the living room.
I don't remember seeing the painting before I picked the flowers for this arrangement, but I really must have. How could that be chance that I coordinated with that gorgeous oil painting?
