Natalie Bowen Studio

CW paid a visit to floral designer Natalie Bowen's studio in the Dog Patch district of San Francisco. She loved the open space of the studio interspersed with "certain moments of "nook & cranny" usage of space". And her friend got to sit down with Natalie and talk about floral arrangements for her wedding. An aesthetically productive weekend indeed!

From the Studio: Leaky Wednesday I guess if we have weekly Happy Cupcake Fridays at our Cat Seto studio, we're bound to have an annoying "Leaky Wednesday" right? Thanks to Cadenza and Freya, they were able to stem the water heater leak and prevent any damage of our paper goods!
