I'm still swooning over the deep red dahlias that are in bloom right now.

Today, as I was strolling around Whole Foods, I found myself in the flower section looking for some inspiration. I was drawn to the deep, dramatic red of the dahlias and the soft, romantic pink of the tube roses. The two stems are so different in shape and texture, I knew they would make a unique arrangement.

I had some fun playing around with the stems on my friend's balcony this afternoon. Her apartment has some really beautiful rustic structural elements... and her ocean view isn't too shabby either.  Typically I like tighter arrangements. But today (maybe I'll blame it on the heat spike we've been having the past few days in LA) I opted for a larger vase giving the flowers plenty of space to spread out and create a little movement.
