With the massive increase of women sending flowers to men is enabling contemporary flower designs to be accepted probably more readily than a traditional style bouquet . Deep jeweled tones combined with deep green foliage provides a supernatural, bewitching, dark and sexy effect which any man, irrespective of age, will be charmed to receive.
Faithful to the Ikebana principles of minimalism, I compose my floral designs with few flowers. The reasoning behind minimalism is based on the fact that leaves and stems are better suited to express the three points (man, heaven and earth) that govern an Ikebana composition. Depending on the place where the arrangement will be used and the season, I may use a single gorgeous flower, which can be very effective in creating a pleasant aesthetic impression. But the focus of my arrangements is to recreate nature. So, as a rule of thumb, I tend to keep my compositions rather simple. As in Ikebana, simplicity and minimalism are at the heart of my designs.
