Meeting Creative Director Jeff Leatham in Paris!

It has always been a dream to meet the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris' Artistic Director Jeff Leatham. Well, I guess I'll have to dream something bigger because I finally met the genius behind the beautiful floral art at one of the most exclusive properties in the world!

I met Jeff while having lunch in the hotel; we were introduced and there was an immediate connection! He's personable, outgoing, kind and full of energy. I've admired his work for years and now I get to rub elbows with the man who makes flowers come alive! 

Jeff and his team of nine assistants take a reported 12,000 flowers flown in from Amsterdam every week and create magic. They produce at least two dozen major arrangements and installations seen throughout the public areas of the hotel each week. Smaller arrangements are seen in suites and restaurants giving guests an up close and personal experience. There is no other hotel on the planet that spends as much time and money on creating these amazing master pieces than the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris.

Jeff is an American from Utah, who once worked as a runway model. Although, he's self taught in floral design and art, I'm sure his love of fashion and early career as a runway model has inspired his creativity. He now collaborates with luxury brands all over the world to create crystal vases, candles, and home sprays, He's even produced three books on floral decor.

The next time you're in the city of light, be sure to check into the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris where you'll be surrounded by floral art and lots of inspiration.
