Living Floral book, Margot Shaw, flower book
Flower expert Margot Shaw presents portraits of top tastemakers who share their joy of flowers at home in Living Floral: Entertaining and Decorating with Flowers, an inspirational and instructive book for readers who share this passion for nature’s bounty. From interior designers Charlotte Moss, Suzanne Rheinstein, and Bunny Williams, and event designer Tara Guérard to floral and garden experts Sybil Sylvester and P. Allen Smith and culinary consultant Alex Hitz, these luminaries show how to incorporate flowers in everyday home decor and present numerous ways to entertain with flair.

Divided into four seasonal sections, plus practical How-Tos and invaluable Resources, Living Floral illustrates how traditionalists and modernists put together irresistible tables dressed in everything from simple white plates on vintage textiles to heirloom silver, fine china, and elegant linens—but always with gorgeous flowers that form the centerpiece of where we gather with our friends and loved ones. Arranged and showcased in an inspiring variety of containers, the blooms in Living Floral are a heartfelt expression of welcome and celebration that will inspire the reader to incorporate flowers into their everyday lives with the same passion.

Brimming with top stylemakers’ and designers’ innovative floral design ideas, this gorgeously photographed book also shows how eclectic furnishings work well with floral and botanical accents in fabric, wallpaper, artwork, and accessories to shape chic indoor and outdoor spaces. Living Floral will resonate with interior design enthusiasts, home gardeners, and everyone who appreciates the beauty and everyday luxury of flowers.
