Enjoy five, fresh arrangements from Sierra Steifman of Poppies & Posies in Brooklyn, New York.

“When I’m arranging flowers I think about composition, color, form, and positive versus negative space as a painter or sculptor would do. All of these things evoke emotion in flowers, just as they do in art.” –Sierra Steifman
