Masters Of High Contrast Bloom Balance

With extreme shade variations of color in an arrangement comes the difficult task of making the hues flow into a cohesive overall look. We’ve all seen the high contrast bouquet that ends up looking more like a polka-dotted ball of mediocre blooms than a sexy bouquet worthy of a starring role. For years, I didn’t give high contrast bouquets a second look because I’d rarely seen one I actually liked. Mainly, I’d seen round bouquets of white flowers with an occasional single red bloom thrown in and distributed fairly evenly around the design which created the polka dot vibe. As usual, you guys have managed to change my mind on the topic as I’ve seen more and more of you master the balance of designing with contrasting blooms. As it turns out, palettes ranging from nude to pale blush to deep red-wine can mingle perfectly in loosely gathered natural-looking arrangements of interesting blooms and foliage. Thanks for convincing me.  To prove my point, enjoy the arrangements in today’s post… from a few designers I consider Masters of High Contrast Bloom Balance!
