Bold and beautiful spring blossoms

By: Catherine Therrien

Light, bright and airy describe spring's budding blooms, but when juxtaposed against a dark hue, these beauties exude a completely different vibe - one that's also dramatic and daring.

Loose sprays of yellowy green flowering dogwood make a dramatic statement, even more so when set against a rich, dark backdrop. Create a pleasing imbalance by placing tall branches in a simple, smaller-size vase. dark-florals-glass-dome.jpg
A precious pink flowering dogwood stem is a study in simple beauty when placed under a glass dome. dark-florals-lilac.jpg
Liliac and flowering cherry cuttings lay casually across shallow bowls for a look that's informal and uncontrived. Dark-colour vessels provide the perfect foil for soft pink blooms to pop. dark-florals-pink-dogwood.jpg
Highlight nooks and crannies with brightly coloured blooms. Here, a single stem of pink flowering dogwood set in a bud vase brings a dark shelf to life. dark-florals-vases.jpg
Whether along the length of a mantel or gathered together on a dining table, vases in different shapes and sizes keep the arrangement fresh and dynamic. dark-florals-tabletop.jpg
A cluster of soft-hued vessels with a few delicate stems interspersed on a dark wooden sideboard establishes a pretty backdrop in the room and can be admired from a distance.
