FRESH STYLE I arrange heroines, and of course I enjoy the love stories behind them. If you weren't a floral designer, you might be a . . . Musician—a classical pianist. Playing the piano is what I do to relax and recharge, and classical music inspires me. What are your three favorite movies of all time, and why? The Godfather because I love the emotions highlighted around family, loyalty, togetherness, culture, and conviction— not to mention that I am a huge fan of Al Pacino. Gone with the Wind: I have only two words—Scarlett O'Hara. The Shawshank Redemption because I'm inspired by the perseverance and patience that Andy Dufresne displays, and I absolutely love the human aspect of the relationships and friendships among the main characters. What is your go-to attire? I like my Japanese vintage kimonos a lot. Name a couple of things that you dread being discontinued. I would be very upset if they quit making kenzan floral pin frogs, and I would be most unhappy if they discontinued my perfume, Laila, which is made in Norway. It has a soft floral scent. Between the walnut tree growing down the street from me and all the beautiful 'Limelight' hydrangeas and green zinnias, summer proved to be quite lush in providing green flowers and foliage. These gorgeous spray roses (multiple small blooms per stem) added interest with their central touch of blush. The special vessel I used for this arrangement is from a dear friend from Moscow, Liza Ambrasovskaya; I think it is a perfect complement to all the colors I chose. Since it is a rather tall vase, I made sure to arrange the ingredients so the branches droop gracefully. Turn the page for step-by-step instructions to make this arrangement. > Kiana's inspiration 42 | M AY/J U N E 2 0 1 8
