designer: saskia havekes of grandiflora

If you haven't seen Saskia Havekes' wonderful book Grandiflora Arrangements, here are a few delightful pages. The daughter of artists who grew up surrounded by Australian bush, Havekes turned her talent to floral design, with a refreshingly unstructured style. Visit her Sydney shop's website to see more examples of her work.

"I rarely start out with a preconceived idea – I look to what is offered naturally by the floral world and then take my cue from that," says Havekes in a wonderful article on urbanboheme.
