Darling & Wild

Growing up in the wilds of North Wales and Shropshire and with a love of anything quirky (current obsessions: taxidermy and cloche) my style is as nature intended - brimming with interest and textures. Think of moss, lichen-covered twigs, seedheads and blossom, succulents and airplants. I am passionate about flowers, their colours and movement. A born forager and hoarder, I embarrass my children with my enthusiasm for nature's bounty on our long country walks! My approach is naturalistic, focusing on enhancing the natural beauty of every bloom. My heart rules my head and I'd rather use fewer exquisite flowers than more of the less pretty. I confess to not being a fan of Gerbera and dread the Martini vase (unless filled with gin - with twist of lemon, or an olive if you will).
