A midrange medley of earth colors with a vintage feel are layered to create this look. Find archival patterns juxtaposed with Asian motifs and flea-market finds. Embroidery, chiffon and filigree are at home here. Souvenirs of travel as well as favorite and sacred items are unabashedly collected side by side, exposing the layers of life's experience.
The style is casual and weedy and is given to unexpected combinations. Flowers that support it are 'Sahara' and 'Peppermint' Roses, Lisianthuses, Gerberas, Asiatic Lilies, Ranunculi, Hydrangeas, Stocks, Mums, Cottage Yarrow, Festival Bush, Tweedia and Grasses, and for a twist, mix these botanicals with Proteas or Leucospermums.
