The San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate.com featured Bloomingayles secrets to long lasting holiday floral arrangements in the Home & Garden section on Sunday, December 19, 2010. The editor included a beautiful image of a monochromatic design of green figs on branches from my website taken by the amazing photographer Leslie Sophia Lindell as well! I enjoyed working on the article with Jeannie Matteucci, a SF Bay Area-based freelance writer who covers style, culture and home design for cover stories for SF Chronicle Home & Garden and a variety of top publications. I am looking forward to collaborating with Jeannie on more design related articles in 2011! Follow the link above for the full write up.
And for my faithful readers, here is a very brief summary of what I shared:
1. Use a grouping of vases with a small number of flowers in each to create a modern and dramatic look.
2. Go monochromatic for an elegant display.
3. Stay seasonal in your choices!
