Earlier this year we shared our tips with you on using flowers in your home for spring/summer. But flowers are an all year round obsession for us and this week we are looking at how to keep those blooms looking lovely in your home through the autumn/winter months.

The lovely team at Bloom & Wild flower delivery company came over to our house for the afternoon and we pulled out some of our favourite vases with their flowers of the moment to give you some ideas on keeping your home looking fresh as we transition through the seasons. As the nights are drawing in and skies go grey, the flowers get richer in colour and more densely textured, bringing a luxe vibe to your interior.

The two bouquets we had the pleasure of styling, were their premium hand-tied rose bouquet the Lucie, full of two dozen roses (always a firm fav or ours throughout the year) and fabulous scabious balls. The other Bloom & Wild bouquet we styled, was the Neve, from their letterbox collection and is the perfect autumn-into-winter mix of eryngium, calla lilies and eucalyptus with deep red roses. Eucalyptus brings instant class and the Calla lilies give such elegant form.

Since the flowers are so rich and layered we have used very simple vases with modest clean shapes to let the flowers really sing. Using the right vase for each occasion and each bouquet really can make a big difference.

We first styled the Lucie in a tall blue glass vase. Using a tall vase will make a real statement and can change the look of the flowers and space quite dramatically giving them structure and height whilst keeping a tight formal display that is so luxe. The Blue is the perfect backdrop to bring out the colours in the bouquet and those scabious balls are so delicate and cute. You know we love a sculptural form and these add so much to the look. The tall thin vase with the tightly bulbous display of flowers at the top echoes the natural impact of the scabious.

The second vase we styled was the Neve, in was a milk bottle style vase. We would normally suggest that this style of vase is best suited to a wild flower bouquet. However, styling your flowers in a vase this shape, will give them a more natural and wild look allowing the flowers to fall naturally. The colours are so deeply layered and yet so fresh. It has a Scandi edge that we love and the roses sit so well with our new Floral wallpaper design, 'Joy' for Graham and Brown.
