When I was approached to create a series of bold arrangements that scream, "spring in your face," I did a little happy dance inside and was overjoyed with the opportunity. I am no stranger to using color in bold ways, but it is rare that the person I'm creating for asks me to be even bolder. Usually, as a designer, I'm the one convincing my clients that more is more. I love combining unexpected colors to create unique palettes that can be challenging to pull off. It's a bit thrilling in that, it keeps me on my toes knowing an idea could be executed terribly if I'm not thoughtful about elements like placement and transition. Playing it safe when it comes to design is not appealing to me, and there is no room for growth if I only work within the narrow limits often set by others. So, when I was recently asked to go even bigger and bolder, I was pleasantly shocked and delighted. A challenge, for sure, but when the potential for disaster is lurking in the corner, a beautiful outcome is that much more rewarding. Thank you to the folks at J.G. Domestic in Philadelphia for being so helpful!
