In the second episode of our 2019 Design Star video series, Shean Strong creates an “indoor meadow” installation, once again using a combination of fresh and dried florals. This is a type of design is great for indoor, outdoors, around chairs or other furniture that will create a beautiful visual effect for your clients, brides, and photographers.

Since launching our 2019 Mayesh Design Star workshops with Shean Strong, we've had a LOT of questions regarding our Masterclass Workshops in San Diego & Austin! We have realized that the name of the class may come off as a bit intimidating, so we wanted to explain a bit further.
To put things simply, the class will go into more depth than the All-Levels and cover master level content, but you do not need to be a master level designer to attend. Shean is there to help you build upon wherever you are in your business at this point in time.
Let's hear a bit more from Shean himself, and if you have any more questions, don't hesitate to ask!
In this episode of A Minute With Mayesh, we discuss all things coolers: CoolBot vs. traditional coolers, walk-in refrigerators, when is the right time to invest in a cooler… Check out the answers to these and other cooler questions in the video below, and catch our latest MWM episodes here!
In August, our Mayesh Design Star tour brought us to sunny Santa Barbara, and Narrative Loft was the perfect eclectic venue for this workshop.
Following the format of the previous workshops, day one consisted of networking, mood boarding and of course, delicious appetizers and wine. To kick off the night, Ryan O’Neill of Curate and Brad Beck of Design Master presented to the students about their respective products. Following, our 2018 Mayesh Design Star, Kaylee of Flourish by Kay, led the students in a brand identifying and mood boarding activity. Students were tasked with creating mood boards that represented themselves and their brands, then everyone went around the room and wrote down one word that represented each mood board. With these words, students were able to narrow the list down to five to articulate their personal brand and design style.
After networking and mood boarding the previous evening, the next morning Kaylee, Jamie and the students jumped right into designing. Kaylee began by showing how to create the skeleton of a floating installation and how to fill in with florals. Then as a class, they completed the hanging installation as well as a floral trellis.
After the group installation, Kaylee demonstrated how she creates her centerpieces while walking the students through her process. The students then designed their own centerpieces in beautiful Accent Decor vessels.
