Several years ago I worked part-time for a couple in Florida answering e-mails, filing papers, etc. It was a cushy job in gorgeous surroundings. Their home and landscaping could easily have been featured in any number of magazines. The furnishings and decor were lush and exquisite.
The lady of the house had one funny quirk - she only wanted white flowers in their home. Pops of color in their abode only came from the art they collected. The remainder of the decor was neutral so that the art would take center stage. The effect was stunning and there was a great side perk to that quirk.
The couple would often receive flowers from friends and colorful blooms were a distraction from the carefully arranged art. Newer friends and colleagues often did not know of her love of only white flowers. That meant that I went home with gorgeous bouquets of colorful blossoms on a pretty regular basis. Told you it was a cushy job!!
