Designs of the Victorian era were all about texture and elaborate ornamentation. I wanted to bring back memories of days when kids would play outside in the snow for hours. The subtleness of the pink garden roses, cream hydrangea and King Protea, play beautifully off the well-worn, lace-up skates offering a lot of texture. The dark magnolia and tinted scabiosa accent the richness that was seen in the wooden sled. Soft, subtle colors with lots of definition. The fragrance of cinnamon sticks and assorted winter greenery infuse the air with smells of the season, making us crave hot apple cider.
