When I tire of the bull that a career in design brings with it (believe me, there’s lots….) I think I’ll open a flower store. After arranging so many flowers for our photo shoots for the book, I found that I kind of have a knack for it. It’s so peaceful and meditative, and I for one need a bit more of that kind of vibe in my life. So I think when I grow up, I’ll be like Stephanie Schur, the owner of Botany Flowers in California. Lonny did a great feature on her and I kept thinking (as I virtually flipped the pages)- “Her life looks nice.”
I romanticize retail all the time, it’s a HARD business, but I can’t help but want a little shop like this!
The flowers– oh, the flowers!
And of COURSE she has an incredible home! Naturally! See more of it and a great interview with her on Jenny Kayne’s blog Rip+Tan:
