Floral design from the color wheel

March 11, 2014 | By | Comments (1)

Did you catch our March story on floral design tips from the pro? Debra Prinzing, author, Seattle-ite, and dear friend of Sunset, shares her choice tips on using color theory when arranging flowers to avoid a vase of confetti.

Sunset March 2014 Color wheel with flowers

We shared some of our behind-the-scenes action on Instagram, but there’s more.

Below is her charming video that kicked off our whole obsession with complementary and analogous. Have a look, and then have some FUN designing!

While you’re at it, be sure to check out Debra’s new venture, Slow Flowers, a directory that will hook you up with florists, shops, and studios who design with American-grown flowers. I’m eagerly awaiting its launch, as it will be my go-to cut flower source (besides the test garden, or course).

And if you’re in the area, stay tuned: Debra will be a featured speaker at Celebration Weekend on May 31 and June 1. Cut flowers for all!
