Some flowers and vases are made for each other; you just need to unlock the harmony between them to find the perfect fit. We show you how to spruce up your living areas by using simple and beautiful indoor plants that are quick and easy to maintain.
The full-bodied textural allure of Echeveria combined with artichokes (Cynara cardunculus var. Scolymus) calls for contrast and grandstanding – and a white cake stand is just the graceful display vessel for that.
Singular sprays of freesias in a selection of hand-cut glass vases ooze elegance – and a mirror tray doubles up the glamourous effect.
Chincherinchees (Ornithogalum) can go without water for a while, and the twisted stems allow for easy movement – which makes a glass cloche just the display case for them.
An informal grouping of slim white ceramic vases, each accentuated with single stem flowers from the garden – Allium ampeloprasum, snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus) and Poppy (Paeoniflorum) – makes a subtle yet striking statement.
It’s a winner
Show off your snapdragons to glorious effect in an unused trophy – and the crowd will go wild!
Sculpturally breathtaking, the slender stems of Allium porrum, from the onion family, require similarly elegant and slender vases for maximum impact.
Just add water
One flowerhead of hydrangeas (Hydrangea arborescens ‘Annabelle’) can make up a number of striking arrangements – but pair it with a simple fishbowl, set the leaves afloat … et voilá! A cool focal point.
On a pedestal
A rounded arrangement of grey Brunia, chincherinchees (Ornithogalum) and artichokes calls for a tad more than just a complementary vase – the silver pedestal gives it the spotlight it deserves.
With long spathes of showy blooms, a tall clear glass vase does gladiolus proud – but double the delight with two similar arrangements, and throw in a surprising touch by turning a sheath or two upside down.
