Retro vignettes

Something a little different this week. The David Hicks Book of Flower Arranging, Introduction by Julia Clements, Marshall Cavendish Publications, 1976. By this stage, according to the dust cover, David had written at least 5 of this style of little book on everything from decoration to “living with taste”. A superstar of 60s and 70s design cashing in on his fame? Is nothing new? The book is full of not only lovely and often not so dated flower arrangements but also Hick’s beautiful tablescapes. In the middle of winter here I am dreaming of spring!

love these floral arrangements – they scarily look very MODERN! As they say – what goes around….

love the top image – so dramatic!

I was just thinking the same thing as Jessica. And I’ve always loved the flowers in the 6th photo (I don’t know the name).
