Kelly Wearstler: Cherry Blossoms

“I love cherry blossoms for their delicate stature and beautiful color. I’ll style them solo without other flowers in a tall vase—they add instant architecture to a room. When they’re in season, we also have them at our flagship boutique in large urns.” —Kelly Wearstler, Los Angeles-based interior and fashion designer

Athena Calderone: Ranunculus

“What I love most about ranunculus is how they grow more interesting as the bloom unfolds, revealing so many delicate layers. I suppose they are in alignment with my personality—I’m a bit shy upon first meeting, but eventually open up once I get to know someone and feel comfortable. I place my arrangements front and center, on a coffee table atop a stack of books so they can be seen from all angles.” —Athena Calderone, New York-based interior designer and blogger behind Eye Swoon

Lauren Geremia: Eucalyptus Leaves

“Eucalyptus reminds me both of the East Coast where I’m from, and of California where I live. Growing up, my mother always had it dried in arrangements and used it in oils, so it’s a nostalgic scent for me, and puts me in a great mood. As an adult I pick it on hikes where allowed, and it lasts forever. I use it in arrangements with white flowers, or put dried bundles next to my bathtub or in my walk-in shower.” —Lauren Geremia, San Francisco-based interior designer

 

 

Alexa Hampton: Anemones

“I love all anemones because they are so cool and graphic, but I especially love the purples. In arrangements, I like them un-diluted by any other flower. A pile of anemones is perfect. Because they are a small bloom, I tend to prefer them in shorter, denser bunches, which makes them perfect on coffee tables and in repeating arrangements on a dining table.” —Alexa Hampton, New York City-based interior designer and author

Lulu deKwiatkowski: Lilacs

“Lilacs are laid-back, happy, and a little hippie—not so formal. And their purple color makes every room look good; it gives it spunk. They remind me of every house I’ve ever walked into that I love, meaning that it’s usually creative and filled with good energy. They should be bunched together—raw and free to flop around as they are—their color speaks for itself.” —Lulu deKwiakowski, founder of fashion and decor brand Lulu DK
