Lush beautiful blossoms like peonies, hydrangeas and cymbidium orchids aren’t perfect for every decor and we’re sometimes asked to create more modern designs using just big leaves.

Usually these bouquets are placed in contemporary settings (most recently in the chic interiors of Megu, a trendy Japanese restaurant in New York) and in homes with a coastal or tropical feel.

Big leaves such as monstera deliciosa, elephant ears and fiddle leaf fig are not only a cost effective way of getting big style on a budget, but the fresh ones seem to last forever (the same could be said for the faux ones, too!)  We love how theses designs make such a statement without all the fuss.

So whether your look is natural or nautical, we think big leaves are the way to go for maximum style – don’t you?
