Best Baroque Styled Vignette
“So you could say that my Ph.D. in Art History informs my style. I love the tenebrism of Baroque art and try to routinely impart that highly romantic and classic style to my designs and photos,” John said.

Best Baroque Floral Arrangement
Judging for floral arrangements inspired by the Baroque period was Mandy Majerik of Hot House Design Studio. Mandy often designs for our photo shoots here at Accent Decor, and recently wrapped up all the designs for our latest valentine’s day mailer.
As a floral designer with a strong foundation in technique and a constant eye on what’s trending in design, it’s no surprise that she picked an outstanding autumn inspired arrangement as the winner.
And that winner is Katie Walden of Floranthropist in Redding, CA, who is inspired by classic design and eclectic beauty.
“The composition of the arrangement lends itself to being reminiscent of the still life painting theme put forward in the AD trend,” Mandy said. “Overall, the colors, floral selection and texture of the arrangement work so well together. The shape of the arrangement is what caught my attention at first glance. The bountiful design is a great reflection of baroque.”
“The bouquet that won, I made for an antique show in our area, Roses and Rust. These were the last of the Cafe au Laits for the year, and I had a lot of Autumn flowers in the fridge,” Katie said. “It was a lovely flower making experience. I was in a hurry, but my husband said, “you have to take a picture!” I am so glad I listened to him!”
