- When did your passion for flowers begin?
I was lucky enough to grow up in a house where there were always fresh flowers. Since I was a little girl I have loved them. I remember always going for a walk with a pair of scissors to cut flowers. At first it was just a hobby but soon I realized that I could do it professionally and I decided to train in this world. It is exciting!
- A project that you would really like to carry out?
I would love to make a floral installation like the one made for the famous Christian Dior fashion show in Paris. I think it looks amazing! Someday I would like to be able to set one up....
- What type of flower, plant, etc. do you like to work with the most? What is your favorite flower?
I really enjoy working with almost all the flowers. It is a lot of fun to see the effect that is achieved with each one of them. It is hard for me to decide on one in particular and if I am honest I change my taste in flowers very often. But I recognize that I have a great weakness for ranunculus.
- When it comes to flowers and plants, what is your favorite season of the year?
Undoubtedly autumn. I love the colors of this time of the year; oranges, ochers, burgundy... You can make very special combinations. In addition, autumn is the season of fruits such as rose hips. I love using these branches in large arrangements as you get a much more natural effect.
- A piece of floral decoration to always have at home
A bouquet of seasonal flowers, no greens or anything, just several stems of the same flower. It decorates any part of the house.
- How did you get to know Katira? What is your favorite piece?
I met Katira through a client who had asked me for the floral decoration for a dinner she was giving at home. On these occasions I always ask to see the tableware, table linens, glassware, etc. and then decide which flowers to use. When she showed it to me, I liked it so much that I asked her where they were from and it turned out to be all from Katira. It was a real discovery! I love everything they have but what I like the most is their glassware collection, the colors are beautiful. I also love their collection of books, definitely a gift!
