Springtime Blooms with Kiko Design

Meet Kowsh, Co-Owner of KiKo Design.

We caught up with Kowsh to chat all things Spring blooms to celebrate the Butler In Bloom in Potts Point.

Kowsh founded Kiko Design, a floral design and styling studio as a result of her obsession with flowers and styling. Having grown up in an extremely creative household Kowsh was naturally drawn towards art and design and found great comfort in being able to express herself through any creative platform.

With years of experience working with some of Sydney’s leading florists, Kowsh truly felt that it was time to launch her own brand and build something of her own.

See what Kowsh had to say about Spring blooms below, plus get the inside scoop on what’s trending and tips to prolong your florals.

What flowers are in season at the moment? As we’re coming into the warmer months, beautiful flowers like hydrangea, guelder rose, dahlias, foxglove, lupins and lovely fragrant garden roses.

What colours & styles do you see trending this season? We’re seeing styling reminiscent of the Italian summertime, incorporating lemons with blues and white. We’re also seeing a resurgence of cottage garden arrangements, something that is organic and airy with a lot of texture and a pop of colour.

How are you styling florals in your own home this spring? I love keeping the home fresh and simple. I love abundance, so having a few vases grouped with only one variety of flowers in each vase creates lushness. Place them in a feature area like an entryway or dining table, which will brighten the space.

What floral arranging and styling tips would you like to share for Spring? Playing with flowers is such a great way to release endorphins, so we always say, have fun with creating! We love different colour combinations – one of our favourites is mixing pinks, oranges and purple.

Do you have any hot tips for making your blooms last? Snipping your flower stems on a 45-degree angle allows the flower to drink as much water as possible. Change your vase water and snip every few days. Taking some of the foliage off the stem will allow the bloom to last longer. Keep your flowers away from direct sunlight in a cool spot as this will make them comfortable. Keep them away from fruit if possible, as the gas emitted from the fruits will fast-track withering!
