Styling Nature presents a match made in heaven with renowned New York-based floral designer Lewis Miller - who presents a lush, naturalistic take on the arrangement of flowers - and acclaimed photographer Don Freeman, whose work is known for great richness and depth, and evocative natural lighting. In a collaboration that is more than a decade old, Miller and Freeman have created a body of work from which this book is drawn, where each image is more compelling than the last: Lewis discussing the approach to, and the inspiration behind, his lavish creations, and Freeman capturing each in images as exquisite as a 17th-century Dutch still-life. Miller, who has a background in horticulture and landscape design, describes his work as "sumptuous nature" and in sections organised by colour, composition, movement, shape, and texture, he explains the thoughts that guide his artistic process. Vivid images of brightly hued poppies, full-blown roses and peonies, hydrangeas, and graceful tulips explode on each page, inspiring the reader to, as Lewis states; "...bring flowers into his or her home and style them in a joyful and masterful way." He will also open the reader's eyes to containers high and low, arrangement-enriching non-floral elements, and the endless textures of unexpected foliage. Practicalities will be addressed with information on the best ways to handle flowers, prolong the life of an arrangement, and the book ends with an invaluable thumbnail index of all images, listing the types of flowers in each arrangement, so the reader will know what to look, or ask for. In addition to special occasions, Styling Nature encourages us to incorporate flowers into our everyday lives, and will embolden connoisseurs of natural beauty who want to take this soulful domestic art into their own hands.
