Nico De Swert's extraordinary floral arrangements
are an artful blast of color and texture.
Red Berlin roses and lemon leaves from Nico De Swert:
Living With Flowers.
In Nico De Swert: Living With Flowers (Abrams,
2005, $40), the floral designer and interior stylist offers
unusual ideas for grouping flowers and plants. De Swert
describes “making sculpture from what nature provides”
as his art and passion, adding that “flowers are one
of the most compelling tools for transforming any environment.”
