I am a long-time fan (and follower) of Holly (decor8.com) and Leslie ([...]). I have heard their blogs for years, attended Holly's wildly popular eCourses on blogging and a pretty much a groupie of anything they do. With Holly's third book - she & Leslie have turned their immensely creative eye to what they do best, decorating....but, with a twist. Decorating with FLOWERS. What's not to love?Broken down into themes - which is always a help to readers, I was particularly enchanted with the Pastels & Neons .. and the Girly Glam sections. Now, as a girl that tends to be a neutral (beige / grey / cream) girl -- the fact that these sections spoke to me what a real surprise. That just shows how talented these lovely ladies are. They can make a simple & "I don't take color chances in my home" girl into a freak for neon.I also really love a good resource or materials section. The "What's in our Cabinet" was a treasure trove of items that I know now my life will not be complete without. I love when that happens.The beauty of this book is the ease that you feel while reading it. You truly believe that you will be able to duplicate or even be inspired to try your own version of their vignettes. Holly & Leslie know their readers -- they understand their design aesthetic. It's an open & friendly book that hits all the highlights and a wonderful addition to my design / creative library. Beautiful -- grab one for yourself.
Everything Holly Becker puts out into the universe is stunning but this book blows me away. Leslie's photography is gorgeous. It's the perfect coffee table book and I plan to use it frequently for ideas when I need a beautiful bouquet to brighten my home. There are so many inspiring ideas here. This would be the absolute perfect gift for your flower loving friend, mom, wife, girlfriend, bestie or self.
Decorate with Flowers is the most approachable floral arranging book I've seen so far and is by far my favorite! Holly and Leslie's simple approach makes this the perfect book for the beginner, but also for those that have had a love affair with flowers for years. Every page is jam packed with inspiring ideas and projects. You will be headed straight to the farmers market to pick up some flowers a few pages in.
This book can stand alone as a great coffee table picture book, but it also has great tips and ideas for flower arrangements. I gave this as a gift to my sister and couldn't help but read through every page before I gave it away. She loves it and has commented on the compliments she has received having it out in her apartment.
Having picked up a new hobby in floral arrangement, I was eager to learn more about the basics and I chanced upon this book. The book makes it really easy for anyone interested in this topic by breaking down arrangements by rooms. There is also a good level of details in terms of flower selection and looks that can be adopted for any home. I would definitely re-read this book when I need some inspiration for my next arrangement.
The presentation of this book is as great as it's contents! I would buy all the books if they were made into a collection.
The book is very nicely photographed, with tons of new and creative ideas for delicate floral arrangements for events, occasions or just everyday decoration.
I purchased this book to use as an inspiration when drawing and painting flowers. It did not disappoint! The photos are beautiful and the ideas for filling your home with flowers abound!
