Luxury Floral Design
An interview with Nick Perez, CEO of MultiFlor, Inc.
Q: Can you tell us a little about MultiFlor and what the company’s vision/purpose is?
Nick Perez: Our mission is simple. We want to create luxurious and innovative work that push the boundaries of design while at the same time, provide a very personalized and tailored experience for our customers. Our goal is to make the MultiFlor brand synonymous with luxury and make words, like “reliable,” creative,” “innovative” and “consistent,” the first thing that comes to mind when someone hears the name MultiFlor.
Q: What are some top home staging trends now?
Nick Perez: Simplicity is still king. Any floral element should be brought in to enhance the space and not dictate the look. That said, the color green is a great neutral color scheme that, although simple, brings life to spaces and adds a sense of freshness and vitality.
Q: Could you offer some DIY ideas that are doable for any home owner?
Nick Perez: There are infinite ways for homeowners to enhance their spaces with elements found around their yard. Whether blooming branches in the spring, magnolia in the summer, autumnal leaves in the fall or holy branches in the winter, clippings from indigenous trees and shrubs make for great table top decorations. Pair those with an interesting container found in your home and you have a great accent piece that anyone can do!
Q: What types of flowers are “in” for Spring?
Nick Perez: Of course your typical bulb plants are your most common…tulips, hyacinth. Blooming branches are also very popular but there are some unique blooms that are worth a look. Sweet pea grown in Japan are out of this world and come in highly unusual colors such as coral and two tone purple and white. Dutch Hellebores is another gorgeous bloom and there are at least ten varieties to chose from. A hybrid Ranunculus know as Clooney is a relatively new variety that are the size of penny. Lastly, the Garden Rose market is getting bigger with new varieties and colors including the award winning David Austin variety something more special.
Q: What are the best ways to incorporate flowers into our homes?
Nick Perez: Personally I always have a combination of lots of green plants, blooming plants, mostly orchids, and occasional cut flowers to bring color into our spaces. I try and bring my two boys, Dylan and Fenton (ages 12 & 14) some form of a green plant, usually succulents, for their rooms and they have grown to appreciate the freshness and vitality that a live plants provides. My wife love the cut flower designs and always lights up when I bring something home. Me... I love it all!
