Sometimes the simplest of colour palettes have the most appeal. Simple, pure and unadulterated. Not cluttered but elegant and stylish. This timeless colour combination of black and white has been portrayed here through beautiful Calla Lilies. White lillies symbolising purity and innocence while Black symbolises elegance and mystery.
The flowers have an interesting mythological history. Calla lilies are said to come from the ancient god Hera, the wife of Zeus. In the story, Zeus brought Hercules to nurse from his wife while she was sleeping. He wanted his son to have the strength of the gods. Hera awoke and pushed the baby away from her. Drops of milk flew across the sky creating the milky way and everywhere they landed on earth, calla lilies bloomed.
