Format: Hardcover
Decorate with Flowers, written by Holly Becker and Leslie Shewring, was delivered just in time! After a long and TOUGH winter here in the eastern U.S., we are all ready for some floral inspiration. Holly Becker is the well-known founder of the interiors blog, Decor8 and her blogging course series, Blogging Your Way. Leslie Shewring is a stylist, photographer and author of her blog, A Creative Mint. Holly and Leslie deliver a non-intimidating and creative approach to fresh floral decorating.

The book is absolutely beautiful and successful. It's bright, whimsical and gorgeously photographed. Every chapter has a mood board (I personally think their mood boards are the best...I want to live in them! That might sound odd, but if you check out the book, you will know what I mean!) In addition to mood boards, each chapter has it's own theme and Do-It-Yourself project (such as painting jam jars and making graphic-stamped bags). There are DIY lovers abound so it's an added bonus for them! The individual themes of each chapter cater and inspire to people's different styles. So if you love bright and bold colors, there is a chapter for you. If you like a more beachy/breezy/coastal look, there is a chapter for you. You will find floral arrangements in non-traditional containers such as water pitchers, in jars, hanging from ribbon and twine on the wall, and in fabric-wrapped plant pots. Perhaps the non-traditional is the new traditional?

One of my favorite things about the book (besides the mood boards) is their use of typography. Typography just makes me happy. It catches my eye and inspires me. Their fonts and in-text designs are adorable and fit perfectly with the fun theme of the book. The best part? You don't have to be an expert on flowers to understand this book and get rolling with using your own containers around your home. They cover basic information of the flowers they love and use, so you will also learn a lot.
