"This is a fabulous time for brightening up your home with flowers,” says Alexis Garrett, an interior designer and resident of Cardiff by the Sea. “Right now, I am especially crazy for lilacs, tulips and ranunculus.” Garrett, who founded the lifestyle blog FernAndFeather.com, frequents Trader Joe's and Fraco's Flowers on Leucadia Boulevard. She advises using a cluster of vases and putting just one type of flower in each vessel. “For vases, I love using old tins, milk glasses and even vintage crystal,” she says. Find these at Solo on Cedros and Village Consignment on North Cedros. Adds Garrett, “If you are up for the drive, the Irvine Flea Market is a great place to find all sorts of treasures."
