How to work white on white

WHEN CUT­TING AND AR­RANG­ING the blooms from your gar­den, white on white may seem counter-in­tu­itive as you gaze upon the many lovely hues call­ing for at­ten­tion in your flower beds. But a pure white flo­ral ar­range­ment will work in any space, pre­cisely be­cause of its simplicity. In a colour­ful room, white blooms will stand out and add a note of seren­ity. Within a white dec­o­rat­ing scheme, the tex­tures and shapes of the flow­ers will draw the eye, so mix bold, graphic lilies and or­chids, with softer daisies and prim­u­las. Don’t want all white? White and green or white and yel­low flow­ers are also classic spring com­bi­na­tions.
