    “With permanent botanicals, most designers want to go for a structured look,” says Bob Hampton. “Instead, you should treat permanents like fresh. Let them breathe.” For more of Bob’s living-and-breathing designs, see “True to Life” in this issue.

    Roman luxury 
    By pairing a tiger-striped bromeliad with wood berry sprays at the center of this overflowing footed bowl, Bob has created a focal area that’s soothing and restful to the eye, a visual anchor for the bright, dripping citrus garland and pendant, catkin-like racemes of Stachyuras praecox around the rim. Bright green dried yarrow and ferny orbs fill in the space between.

    Holy smokes, Batman!
    Silk holly leaves make convincing, spooky, lightweight bats. Glue two leaves together first, then pin the pair to a piece of cardboard and spray them with flat black paint. Let them dry, turn them over and spray the other side. Joyce has hung the bats from black mitsumata branches with nearly invisible, fine-gauge fishing line. Some of the branches are horizontal, wired to the verticals with black aluminum wire, the better to hang the bats.
