Trend: Deconstructed Florals

Care for a little trend spotting first thing on a Monday Morning?  I’m noticing (what I’ll call) ‘deconstructed florals’  all over the place.

Here is an example:
trend - decontructed florals

To me it’s the floral mash-up of vertical gardening, meadow-like and wild landscaping and just plain (wonderful) messiness.

Elements of the trend seem include (but are not exclusively):

  • wild and delicate flowers
  • test tubes and other little found vases
  • multiples (of everything)
  • groupings of one kind of plant or flower
  • stuff put on walls (and generally hanging) – usually in single stems – tape and hanging materials add to the design
  • singles
  • dismantling flowers to make new textures
  • leaves and non-flower materials taking center stage
  • and order that comes from arranging lots of containers or stems individually rather than composing flowers together into a single container.

Here are whole bunch of images to show you what I’m talking about.   Have you noticed this trend?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
