Book Description

14 April 2011
Live with flowers the Jane Packer way. Leading floral artist Jane Packer is renowned for her chic signature style of elegant flowers arranged with a fresh, modern twist. In At Home with Flowers, Jane picks the flowers she loves best and shows how they can bring colour, variety and style to every corner of the home. She covers all the basics, including buying, conditioning and caring for flowers as well as choosing the right vases to display them in. Jane then takes us on a tour of every room in the house, from the hallway to the bedroom, taking in the kitchen, living room and bathroom along the way. There are dramatic flowers for mantelpieces, massed vases on console tables, architectural blooms showcased on coffee tables, luscious posies on dressing tables and desks, and even cut flowers for outdoor entertaining, as well as arrangements for guest rooms and bathrooms. There are no stiff bouquets or formal displays, just pretty, simple and achievable arrangements that you'll yearn to recreate in your own home.

I'm not one of life's gardeners or flower arrangers, so I'm not sure why this book appeared in my Amazon recommendations list. But it did, I took one look at its glorious cover, and I fell in love. Those blue hydrangeas! That Eames rocker! That glowing oak floor! I'll take the book, and the hipster-modern-urban-bohemian lifestyle daydream that goes with it, please.

One day OneClick will bankrupt me, but it will be books like this which will keep me happy in penury. The cover is just an introduction to the delights within - pages and pages of the most beautiful images of flowers and plants, each very inventively styled, sharply photographed, and so cheerful with colour that just a quick flick through has you smiling.

The featured flower arrangements are natural and informal in style and seem easy to achieve, and there are enough 'insider tips' included within the text to make this book feel like a useful purchase, not an extended advertorial for Jane Packer's business. My cut flower purchases are usually limited to a bunch of supermarket tulips and the odd birthday present bouquet, but the colours and photography here have really inspired me to experiment and to introduce more greenery into the house.

If I have one complaint, it's that this book is so 'of the moment' in its styling that it may very well be dating as I write. If you're a fan of Columbia Road flower market, fleamarket retro interiors, Living Etc magazine and the Anthropologie stores, you'll absolutely adore it. If you're more traditional in your design tastes, you'll think the featured interiors bizarrely kitsch, whilst those who incline to the modern and sculptural will think them desperately twee. Personally, I found the book a delight, and the pleasure of leafing through it again and again has outlasted any flowers I could have bought for the same price.

I bought this book for a Christmas Present as my friend loves Jane Packer Flowers and has attended some of her Flower Arranging Courses at the Jane Packer School. She was delighted with the beautifully illustrated book.
