Floristic trends are always in line with the general aspirations of humanity. Now, in a period of significant urbanization, an ecological approach is especially valuable along with the desire for comfort and even luxury, in which a tired city person can relax, get pleasant emotions and a feeling of celebration. Three floristic trends of this New Year have been formulated as follows: city, rest, luxury. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the sophisticated works of the international-class florist Irina Knyazheva, which fully correspond to this theme and will certainly inspire you to create a festive feeling of luxury in your home interior or office.
The first project was part of the office floristic design called "The Seasons", which changed depending on the season. Winter is presented in two different versions. The tinted bamboo supports are intended to visually delimit the composition area from the rest of the office, but they are not strictly arranged in an irregular triangle.
In the first version, the background is covered with white stone with a scattering of cones and shiny balls, where in places a meager lichen breaks through, hinting that there is life under the snow in winter.
The accents are created by Christmas trees, recreated on the oasis cones of the spruce branches of the noble fir (Abies nobilis), a North American plant with non-falling gray-green needles. They are complemented by spruces from twigs and spruce cones covered with artificial snow. The Christmas trees are set in glass vessels filled with crumpled cellophane and medium-sized gold and silver balls. Glass cones with fir paws and spruce cones, fixed in the air between bamboo supports, are designed according to the same principle. Two globular potted boxwoods are designed to balance the tapering structures in the composition. The inclusion of potted plants - the three spathiphyllums - follows the City trend, which is always dominated by container plants. Whiteness, Christmas trees, a few live plants give a feeling of mild winter and serenity. It has the mood of a fairy tale - these tiny flowers of spathiphyllum are just like snowdrops from the fairy tale "12 months", remember: "… the first green leaves are already peeping out from under the dark peel."
In the second version, the bottom is covered with a snow-covered padding polyester, surrounded by a border of fir cones, decorated with a stone and silver sparkling balls. Large stones lie in a semicircle, echoing the semicircle segment on the ceiling of the room. The same cones with fir paws and three types of structural compositions. Two - from apple tree branches covered with glue and artificial snow, giving a feeling of winter and peace in nature. Two - from Bamboo Lucky (more correctly - Sander's dracaena) twisted form, directed upwards. Another one is made of noble fir, which echoes the conical compositions on the walls and gives the feeling of a forest. Glass vessels are double, between them are filled with natural pebbles and colored expanded clay - a light material designed to replace a heavier stone that can break glass. A layer of artificial snow enhances the feeling of cold, ice. Graceful potted dracaena Marginata frame the composition, bringing airy lightness and urban style to it. Winter: nature is asleep, but is already preparing to awaken …
And this composition is for the interior, for the New Year's table. The dull silver color and the shine of white correspond to the richest Baroque style in the history of culture, which is most in line with the "Luxury" trend.
A set of handmade porcelain dishes, exquisite glass glasses in a solemn frame of white flowers, candles in simple graceful candlesticks are complemented by man-made flickering balls made of natural materials. To create such balls, round shapes of foam or oasis are required, but they can also be made from simple available materials - tightly rewound bunches of hay or cut paper, on which pieces of horsetail stems, pine cones cuts, lichens are glued. Smaller balls are wrapped with a silver cord or pearl beads, wire with the inclusion of moss.
The sphere, covered with pine cones and moss, and powdered with silver snow, consists of two hemispheres, between which are shown noble orchids - dendrobiums in combination with branches of a snowberry. The tureen contains foamy caps of white hydrangeas, freely placed in the water. The central part of the composition is occupied by an airy bouquet of a snowberry, so reminiscent of a mistletoe - the European symbol of Christmas, warding off trouble and preserving love, health and prosperity in the family. All elements of the composition form a decorative strip along the center of the table: 5 groups of double vases and tall glasses, complemented by candles and balls.
For those who care about the bright world of family and friends, another trend of the coming year - "Best Friends" will be close. It is expressed in three Christmas trees made of light natural materials - three inseparable friends. They do not require anything expensive and unusual - a cone made of thick paper, stuffed with hay, is pasted over with lichen, or curled pieces of birch bark, or slices of spruce cones. It is installed on a stick fixed in a wooden cube - preferably not perfectly flat to emphasize the naturalness of the composition. It is complemented by cuts of tree branches, covered with snow, and modest candles. This work fits well with another trend of our time - the desire for environmental friendliness, like the IKEA style, where they prefer a combination of wood with metal, cotton, and linen. In such work, everyone can show their personal approach,the most valuable thing in them is hand-made and warmth.
The last work has a vivid theme of Christmas. Used paired designer vases, metal in the base and decorated using decoupage technique with paper napkins with monograms and cupids. Vases in beige Baroque shades have an aged look that gives them an antique age. The compositions are composed of Scots pine (Pinus silvestris) branches, spruce cones, snowberry in fruits and inflorescences of delicate fragrant multi-colored hyacinths. These spring primroses symbolize the birth of a new life - the baby Jesus Christ.
Happy New Year and Merry Christmas!
