We are really excited about our new paper flowers here in the office! So we asked Jessica Comingore — designer, master pinner, and playlist maker extraordinaire — to style some of our handcrafted botanicals at her Los Angeles home. We love her photos and tips!
Every time I visit the flower mart, I go straight to this one booth that feels like you’re walking through a forest — flowering branches galore. So when I saw the quince blossoms, I was immediately drawn to them. I love their sculptural quality and tend to use them all the time when I’m photographing interiors.
I feel like flowers are the ultimate mood enhancer, so I like to have one plant or arrangement in every room. It brings a space alive in the simplest way!
I’m a bit of a collector when it comes to ceramic vessels, and sometimes unconventional objects like an old marmalade jar or brass pitcher can be repurposed for holding an arrangement. I personally like to choose ones with complimentary colors to what’s going in them — if the flowers are punchy and vibrant, I like to tone them down with something neutral.
While I love the look of a freshly cut bouquet, there’s certainly something to be said about the easy maintenance and obvious longevity of paper flowers. If you ever get bored of them, you can simply put them in a new location, trim the stems down and try a new holder — half the fun is in the experimenting!
