Bring beauty in the form of nature into your home and your lifestyle, no matter where you live, through artful floral arrangements, as well as indoor and outdoor flowering plants.

The Artistry of Flowers encourages everyone to live with florals and to appreciate their beauty as we appreciate art. Celebrated floral designer Gabriela Salazar teaches us how to look at flowers and understand their characteristics from an artist’s perspective. By exploring different shapes, colors, and textures, she shows us how to understand flowers and their living, transitory nature.

Drawing on her painting background, Salazar looks at floral arrangements as compositions. She highlights which type of blooms are best for different designs and shares building blocks for floral designs ranging from simple and sculptural to complex and colorful, including arrangements for any mood and different decor. Salazar inspires us to explore our creativity, empowering us to design our own arrangements.

Combining philosophical and practical tips, such as appreciating how flowers change over time and working with fragility The Artistry of Flowers is a treatise on flower appreciation. The stunning photography by Ngoc Minh Ngo—known for Rizzoli books such as In Bloom and Eden Revisited—complements Salazar’s enthusiastic instruction.
