Nature is our greatest source of inspiration the cycle of growing, blooming and dying. Nothing is more fascinating than observing flowers in bloom, nothing more exciting than taking a walk through the woods and in the mountains. Landscapes, branches and fruit constantly inspire us to create new designs. Trends emanating from the Flower Council of Holland also provide us with fresh impetus. For several years, the researchers there have been examining annual trends in flowers and plants. For each season of the year, they present a seasonal theme that integrates the current fashion in colours, materials, shapes and patterns. The theme is illustrated by means of photographs of the appropriate flowers, plants and accessories.
