Updated Classics: Floral Arrangements

Discover fresh alternatives to popular design trends in our online series, Updated Classics. 

loose wild floral arrangement

Classic Pick: Loose, wild floral arrangements that have a fresh-from-the-garden feel call to mind the English countryside. This style of blooms has traditional roots but a timeless, boho look.

deconstructed floral arrangement

Fresh Spin: If you like the look of wild bouquets, consider creating a deconstructed arrangement for a modern spin with the same loose feel. Instead of placing stems in one vase, divide them between smaller vessels – think vintage apothecary bottles or bud vases – to create a blooming vignette.
