Now that we’ve passed the holiday season, it’s time to give our eyes a well-deserved rest. Yes, we’ve been overloaded with images, hype, and too much red-green theme. Most of us just want to decompress and return to our regular pace of living.
For the first Floral Friday of 2018, I decided to create designs incorporating a minimalist ideal. This doesn’t mean I want drab or uninspired looks. In this case it means focusing primarily on color.

What can be done with those forlorn left-over poinsettias? If they’re miniatures, they can be paired with copper. January can sometimes feel dull. If you have a little nostalgia for the holidays, the unconventionally colored poinsettias are just enough of a reminder. The brightly polished copper is best done in small doses so as not to overwhelm your room.
The light blue glass vase provides a brilliant, cheerful note for the trio of Gerbera daisies. Basic fern fronds moderate the bright colors.
