A Life with Plants: From One-of-a-Kind Wedding Décor to Everyday Indoor Greenery
From charming bouquets to wedding venue décor, floral designer Hideyuki Miyanaga has made a name for himself with his show-stopping designs. We visited his studio in Tsukiji, Tokyo, where he helms ANIMUS FLORAL DESIGN.
With an encyclopedic memory of flowers from around the world, complete with their characteristics, Miyanaga designs bouquets and spaces for special celebrations, while also using his expertise as “Indoor Greenery Designer” to incorporate plants into everyday life. Plants are an essential part of our lives, Miyanaga says, and true fulfillment can be found in caring for them.
