6 ways to display flowers on your yacht

Flowers for the saloon & lobby: Theming your yacht

Interior designer and superyacht owner Lady Tina Green reveals the secrets behind the stunning floral displays she has perfected for superyachts – thanks to spending more than half her life at sea.

Ever since I was a child living in Japan and my mother taught me ikebana (Japanese flower arranging), flowers have been a passion of mine. We are a very flowery family: I have arranged them all my life, as have my kids; my parents loved them, my house is always full of them, and I believe that no table or room on board a superyacht is complete without them.

There is no excuse for omitting flowers from your life or your boat; it is not about money – one flower or a potted plant is often enough – it is about time and effort. I find them immensely calming and they always give a room a feeling of freshness and homeliness. Usually, I start with white and build upwards. Here are my suggestions for a few ways of introducing flowers on board.

It is really important to hold your floral theme across the whole yacht, otherwise it will feel schizophrenic. For Lionheart we had a white theme and we focused on different heights to keep the eye busy and add a sense of drama. The look is a modern one that accentuates the height of our ceilings, because I wanted to make a statement when yacht guests entered; the flowers are the same in every room, but we arranged them slightly differently, so as to avoid being too “matchy matchy”. I prefer to keep to one colour and mix shades so as to not have too much going on.
