Keys to Creating a Restful Environment

Whisper-Gentle-Restful-Flower-Themes-Bellevue-Washington

The gentle restful theme of Whisper is influenced by our longing for calm amid the frenzied pace of daily living. Clean lines and more sparse decor are cherished here. Objects are pared down to those that are most loved, allowing them our full focus and attention.

KEYS TO CREATING A RESTFUL ENVIRONMENT


Color
“Barely there” tones of creams, grays, and blue based with deeper earth tones of brown and charcoal. Dusty coral and shimmery copper hues punctuate the look.

Design
Flowers are styled, rather than arranged, into contemporary formats. Often they are displayed monobotanically, and the designs have an austere sensibility.

Suggested Flowers
Distinctive textures and character are important element in the Whisper look. Flowers that are unusual in form (e.g. Anthuriums and Proteas) and therapeutic in fragrance (e.g. Gardenias and Stephanotises) are prized in this sensuous style.
