to say that i love flowers and design might be obvious, i know, but i do! i love flowers and design. working with nature and beauty every day, and sharing it, is a privilege beyond compare. after retiring studio sweet pea a few years ago, i began rethinking my engagement with these passions. that inquiry led me to sadie design. we share and apply our passion for floral design, décor, texture, form and shape with custom visual/set/interior/floral styling, to create inspirational and extraordinary environments. and we have a blast! my goal is to stimulate harmonious living and optimum engagement. i'm applying everything i know about floral and event design and production, and bringing it home. literally! if home is where the heart is, then that is where i want to be.
sadie design is committed to making fresh flowers accessible and available to all. we specialize in expertly delivering custom floral styling for your home or office. do you have a favorite vase and no idea what to do with it? or do you refrain from adding flowers to your dinner party table because you have no idea what varieties to purchase, or what colors would go well with your place settings? well, we do! that's our thing! invite us over!
not quite sure what to do with that dark corner in your living room? feeling like your space is stagnant? have us over! we can assess any space and make custom styling recommendations that will optimize and elevate any environment. inspired by the principles and concepts of feng shui, we can replace and repurpose objects, bring in fresh and natural materials, relocate furniture, create new floor plans, and more! we're transferring all of the experience we've developed in event design and bringing it to the home and office. we particularly love working with existing collections and reorienting their arrangement. but, don't just take our word for it...
what i love most about floral design is teaching it! there is no greater joy for me than to share the principles, techniques and teachings of floral design with people, lots and lots of people! i developed a custom flower arranging class called 'giving gorgeous' back in 2008 and invited Time Out New York to take the class. the idea was to create an interactive team building experience and raise money for the NYRP. we all had a blast, of course, and i've been teaching and delivering classes ever since! i teach introductory, custom, private and specialty flower arranging classes and events on site, on location and for television. i was featured on segments for TBS and FirstLook NY, and i did a series of specialty classes for MSLO. i adore planning, developing and delivering custom flower arranging parties and events in therapeutic environments, especially. teaching and sharing what i love, bringing people together, raising money for good causes - what could be better?
