Deskripsi


Olivier Giugni, the renowned floral artist, presents stunning portraits of his sumptuous creations in a variety of private homes, along with detailed descriptions of their design and placement—and recipes for a dozen of his signature arrangements.

Life is color and color is life. This is the mantra of Olivier Giugni, founder and owner of L’Olivier, the sleek floral design atelier in Manhattan. Far from Brignoles, the Provençal village where he grew up, Olivier reimagines the warmth, whimsy, style, and bursts of color from his native France in a singularly contemporary fashion, and in doing so, he has become one of the New York area’s most beloved and acclaimed floral designers.

Created from a breathtaking range of organic and sustainable material, Olivier’s work becomes living sculpture, drawing from and reflecting back the signature elements of its surrounding environment. True to this vision, his gorgeous, lush arrangements of dramatic flowers and plants inspire and transform every space they occupy.

In Living Art, Olivier walks readers through the homes of eighteen of his clients as well as his own, pointing out how their art, furnishings, and design preferences engage in a call-and-response with his unique arrangements. Along the way, Olivier’s creative thought process is revealed, showing how composition, color, texture, and fragrance can have a subtle yet decisive impact on the energy of a room, enhancing and elevating mood and moment.

Living Art
’s spectacular images illuminate this master florist’s aesthetic approach in an accessible way. A gift for experienced arrangers or novices just learning to work with flowers, the book includes recipes for twelve of Olivier’s unique arrangements, offering novel ways to style flowers, plants, and foliage—from cascade to orchid garden to bouquet. The poetic, playful creativity featured in Living Art will move and spark the imagination of all those who are passionate about flowers.

Living Art - Olivier Giugni

PART I

AT HOME

From small studios to large mansions, from classical style to contemporary design, flowers will enhance your surroundings. I invite you to follow me through a variety of residences to see some of the infinite number of possibilities available to you when flowering your home: bouquets tucked away in bookshelves, next to a stone hearth, on a kitchen counter, or perhaps on the marble floor of a powder room.

Why limit yourself to cut flowers in a vase? Expand your vision to include leaves, branches, field plants, grasses, succulents, cacti, and herbs. Each season will bring new treasures, as will visits to your local flower markets and nurseries.

For me the world is filled with objects that can be reborn as wonderful containers. Open your closets and use that antique ceramic tureen, a colored-glass bottle, a bamboo basket, or even the timeless piece of hollow driftwood the ocean dropped on your
