Paul Decker’s creations speak their own language. He doesn’t only work with flowers but also uses twigs, roots, leaves, mosses and other vegetable and natural materials. That’s why he prefers to call his work floral styling. This term was introduced by Paul Deckers in 1986.

The power, mystery and excitement created by combining various materials play a large role in this. Paul Deckers creates floral interpretations of your emotions.
