• Flowers belong in every room. I like to pair exuberant floristry with statement vases to infuse my interiors with shots of colour. Some of my go-to flowers are pink hydrangeas, brilliant white amaryllis and vibrant red peonies.

    I tend to like the graphic quality of a single variety arrangement. I add tall, fresh eucalyptus leaves to rooms that require more height and use bright green palm leaves at my Cuban dinner parties. Don’t forget your bar trolley which looks better with a posy of pretty blossoms.
