Hey there! My name is Laura, I'm the owner and lead designer at InStyle Blooms. My studio is home based and I love it! I'm a quiet girl with a passion for life & FLOWERS! My mind is always racing a 100 times per minute with ideas for new designs the minute someone mentions flowers and celebrations. Flowers are always on my mind, literally. I fill my cup daily with inspirations by my surroundings! Flowers are my therapy & I live life by grace not perfection. My favorite flower changes with seasons, but I can never get enough of garden roses!
Born and raised from humble beginnings in sunny Southern California, I live in Los Angeles with my husband Armando & baby boy Julian! I'm a lover of stripes, elephants, Disneyland, HGTV Channel, anything vintage, and of course FLOWERS. Family means the world to me & my best friends happened to be my mama and sister Evelyn. Above all, I love God. I attribute my passion to my grandmother who had a passion for flowers and plants. Everything she owned from her wardrobe, to home decor was a mixture of flower patterns, textures and lively pops of color. At the age of eight, I began to have a real interest in collecting flowers. One of my fondest memories is picking flowers from my neighbor's luscious garden. I have vivid memories and recall, designing flowers in white Styrofoam cups early on, and gifting them proudly to my mom & grandmother. Ever since, I always found a reason to pull flowers from strangers gardens on my way home from school or find myself drawing flowers on my notebooks (and I still do this today), like I said, flowers are always on my mind.
A decade later, I visited the Los Angeles Flower Market for the first time and it was love at first sight. I was mesmerized by all of nature's beautiful creations and that's when my love for flowers fully bloomed. That same year I took on a gig as an apprentice at my local flower shop where mixing textures, colors and designing came natural to me. Ever since then flowers and design has enriched my life. Creating unique designs is more than a hobby and passion, it's my way of adding beauty to this world.
Flowers are the heart & soul of the InStyle Blooms studio since 2008. My focus is to create fresh new floral designs that are inspired by our client’s personal taste, while still incorporating my creativity to make each design uniquely yours. InStyle Blooms style is simplistic and effortless. I am a perfectionist at heart and use texture, variation of colors to create movement and contrast in my designs. I am passionate about flowers, foliage and all of the beautiful and intricate details that make an event come to life. I love working with individuals that value flowers just as much as I do. I design for weddings and intimate events and limit the amount of events I take on each year to treat your event as if it were our very own.
My ultimate goal is to “make your event blossom”
