Mornings with Mayesh: Floral Design Spaces

Mornings with Mayesh: Floral Design Spaces

This episode was so much fun because I had not 1, not 2, not 3, but 5 guests that sat down with me to chat about a new book, “Where We Bloom”! Debra Prinzing’s latest book is all about stepping inside the places where flowers come to life. Inside the book, you get to peek into 37 flower-filled spaces of Slow Flowers designers, farmer-florists, and growers. On the show, Debra introduces her book and then we virtually stepped into 3 different spaces - ranging from small to large. Srini Perea from Kreative Hands, Maura Whalen of Casablanca Floral, and Kit Wertz & Casey Schwartz of Flower Duet shared their spaces along with their favorite details of each of their completely different environments.


Where do you bloom? What is your favorite aspect of your space?

Below is the podcast, video reply, and show notes:










  • Debra, I’m so excited to dive into everyone’s special spaces, but before we do that can you tell everyone a little more about your latest book, “Where We Bloom”?


  • It’s time to dive into three different spaces ranging in sizes small, medium, and large.

  • Srini, can you share your space with us? Guys, believe it or not, Srini is in an up-cycled laundry room. It isn’t always about how much you have but how you use what you have! 

    1. Tell us your favorite spot where you do your designing.
