Married couple Kimberly and Enrique Sevilla have been helping urbanites spruce up their living spaces since 2008, offering indoor-friendly air plants ($2–$10) that flourish without soil and hanging ferns encased in globes of moss ($30) from their bright blue shop. The focus here is on greenery, and plants such as temperate bonsai trees ($35–$50) abound in the store’s neighboring outdoor space, where the Sevillas churn out floral arrangements ($50–$300) daily. There’s also a smattering of small gifts, including sterling-silver lockets ($150) containing petite ecosystems and glass teapot vases ($18) that can also be used for serving Tea Beyond floral-infused tea ($12). Weekly classes, including one on how to make ice cream using lavender and roses ($35), will change the way you think about working with flowers.
