This River Wild inspiration by RACHEL HAVEL and designer A VINTAGE AFFAIR is full of bright, warm colours, organic elements, and touches of elegance flowing within every touch. The landscape of the Lyons River Bend offers a serene and peaceful environment allowing every colourful detail to shine.

Robyn from BARE ROOT FLORA created some lush and wild arrangements to complement the incredible beauty of River Bend. Using a fresh and lovely spring colour palette, deeper tones were added in for a bit of moodiness and sophistication. Textural pincushion protea, artichokes and figs were a perfect contrast to the softer blooms of peonies, ranunculus, roses, sweet peas, poppies, azalea and perfect parrot tulips. Gorgeous olive, eucalyptus and plum foliages gave the flowers beautiful movement. The element of terracotta added an earthy feature and is a perfect foil to the cliff walls reaching high above the river.
