L'Olivier, the sleek floral design atelier on Manhattan's West 14th Street, is a long way from Brignoles, the Provençal village where Olivier Giugni grew up. Yet the warmth, whimsy, style, and bursts of color this floral artist brought from his native southern France are unmistakable. His mantra: Life is color, and color is life. This book visits 16 homes featuring a number of Giugni's spectacular creations as well as provides step-by-step instructions for creating a dozen of his signature arrangements.
