Floral arrangements in your home should reflect and enhance the décor. Based on over twenty years experience creating floral designs for the Connecticut Junior Republic’s annual Litchfield House Tour, including seven years as the Flower Chairman, artist and designer, Holly Taylor will demonstrate how to coordinate flowers with any room in your home. Her presentation will cover color, size, proportion, containers, flower conditioning and “mechanics”
Mrs. Taylor’s career in art began with custom needlepoint designs for individual customers as well as for the Boston Museum of Fine Art, The Peabody Museum, Elsa Williams Stitchery and Bernat Yarns. She then designed greeting cards for Gordon Fraser, a British company. An accomplished painter in oil, watercolor, and acrylics, she was a founding member of the Litchfield Art Guild, a cooperative gallery. She later designed both store and window displays for the Susan Wakeen Doll Company and also designed their booth at the Toy Fair in New York City. Mrs. Taylor’s volunteer work includes posters, invitations and special projects for the Junior League of Boston, the Junior Council of the Boston Symphony, the Mattatuck Museum of Waterbury, the Litchfield Garden Club, the Connecticut Junior Republic and the Oliver Wolcott Library.
