Catherine Muller, a well-known flower designer, is famous for creating sophisticated arrangements for French celebrities, fashion shows and high-profile events. She recently began teaching a flower arranging class in Seoul and sat down for an interview with Korea Joonang Daily.

The long-time flower designer recommends homemakers use flowers with unusually strong colors such as dark purple, wine and acid green to create haute arrangements. "When you use special colors, it gets very chic and sophisticated," she told the news source.

The artist, who grew up in the outdoors and finds working with flowers to be a second nature, advises against using too many accessories when arranging bouquets.

She runs a flower school in France and is currently instructing a flower arrangement class in Seoul, South Korea, where she has noticed a change in Koreans' attitudes towards bouquets since the last time she visited the country. "Now everybody wants flowers," she commented.

Muller described the French flower arranging style to be classical and dynamic in contrast to the English who prefer their bouquets round and fixed.

When keeping an arrangement at home, advises flower lovers to criss-cross the stems while inserting them into the vase. The created grid will help keep flowers standing in the desired position.
