Invite to your home an international floral designer who's famous for creating movement and surprise in his designs. Follow his simple instructions, and bring his magic into any room, on any occasion. Delightful original designs appear in breathtaking oversize, double-paged photos that show you the dramatic effects of the completed projects, while each step toward getting there appears in clear close-up captioned illustrations. Turner incorporates found and natural objects into his work, which is often why his arrangements are impressively large. Become inspired to capture the spirit of an Italian garden, a tropical paradise, a Venetian palace, a masked ball--you get so many moods and styles to choose from. Table settings, for example, range from a lavish dinner party to an intimate evening, and its themes can spill into the rest of the room and throughout the house. The same vitality appears in the many designs for all seasons and holidays.
In demand all over the world for his dramatic and original floral designs, Kenneth Turner here explains the inspiration behind his designs and the steps taken to achieve the finished result. He gives advice on all aspects of decorating with flowers and suggests ideas for several areas in the house.
