Bringing Nature Home: Floral Arrangements Inspired By Nature

Unlike most flower-arrangement books, which rely on expensive and often nonseasonal flowers from florists, this book presents an alternative that is in line with the “back to nature” movement. This is the first volume to showcase how to be inspired by nature’s seasonal bounty and bring that nature into the home through floral arrangements.From the well-known lifestyle photographer Ngoc Minh Ngo and Nicolette Owen of Brooklyn’s Little Flower School, Bringing Nature Home presents a portfolio of unique and original floral arrangements directly inspired by the seasons and the local environment, with sources ranging from farmers’ market offerings to the backyard garden. Presented through lush photography that also showcases the beautiful interiors the arrangements are created for, this is as much a decorating tome as it is a floral-arrangement guide. A how-to section offers advice on the selection, trimming, and care of the arrangements and on repurposed and unique containers, making this book practical as well as inspiring.

I bought this book as an inspiration for some painting ideas. It is a stunning book that transports the heart and soul to beautiful calm places. It sits on a rustic bench in my family room always ready to be enjoyed. A wonderful book with truly beautiful photographs.

The best photo is the cover photo. I was so looking forward to seeing other floral arrangements that compared or showed such exquisite combinations as the front cover with the Café au Lait Dahlias and fillers. The rest of the book is full of photos of one flower variety in a simple vase. It was like a one hit wonder with nothing else inside that compared. As a student of floral classes/landscape design it made my book on Michael George floral designs and practical technics shine. I wanted a floral book that could show me great ideas and different floral styles and this book did not delivery. Wish I could get my money. Yes, it is a great coffee table photo if that is all you are looking for in a book.

The arrangements and photography in this book are gorgeous, I seriously just want to carry this book around with me everywhere, so I can show it off.

I love this photographer! Her settings are beautiful and the flowers are everyday arrangemnts that I can put together instead of exotic plants. Currently I have a obsession for Peonies and there is a delightful section about this bush.

A beautiful and inspiring book. Wonderful photographs and gorgeous flowers. Flower arrangements in all styles and sizes. I recommend this lovely book. Great coffee table book. This is NOT a flower arrangement "how-to," book, it is an elegant book to enjoy looking through again and again.

This is a picture book only. Indeed a picture tells 1000 words, but I thought it would have more text information.

I bought three copies of this attractive book for my sisters-in-laws' birthdays. Each of them is an active garden club member who arranges for shows and for entertaining at home. Rave reviews! Sisters were most impressed with the use of flowers and greenery from an average yard to yield stunning and unusual floral arrangements. I am now buying a copy for myself on their recommendations.

Having been a florist for 20 years and knowing my style very well, I can tend to be rather critical of floristry books. However , this book delivers on every level. First and foremost it is a beautiful book in its own could take pride of place on the coffee table with ease. Secondly , artistically it is outstanding...inspiring and innovative but without trying to be too 'tricksy'. The flowers remain natural, wild and uncontrived......I love this book.
