Sometimes we just need to step outside our comfort bubble in order to explore new techniques and styles. For me this concept really hit hard when I had to switch from doing tight posy, bridal-like bouquets to a very gardeny, open, wild style of design. At first I was extremely reluctant to switch over but over time it began to really grow on me and I have come to appreciate the "gardeny style" so much more than the "tight posy style".
As I've mentioned many times before, the other design concept that I am troubled by is bright and contrasting colors. Although I always push for a "tone on tone" subtle palette there are many people out there who just love bright colors. My next step towards a more colorful palette has become whites and greens with a "pop" of color which I actually find quite pleasing in the end.
