Plant Stylist, Brittany Leonardelli’s Love Of Plants
So, let’s go back to the beginning for a moment. You have to wonder when it all begin for Brittany, the founder of Planting Bliss Co. Because when you start a company that’s completely dedicated to bringing plants or “living decor” into one’s home spaces, those roots have to come from somewhere strong.
According to Brittany, her love of plants and gardening started from a very young age. Her family was a huge influence because everyone enjoyed gardening and had plants around their homes. Specifically her “Nonna”, who always had a ton of indoor plants growing up. And it wasn’t that she knew “everything there was to know about plants”, it was her willingness to try and see what happened! Brittany delights in how to this day, her family is the first to offer someone a clipping of their plants. She loves that little reminder of how plants offer a true sense of community.
How Planting Bliss Co. got started…
For Brittany, Planting Bliss Co. becoming a full time business came very organically. It began with Brittany simply sharing her love of plants within her community with “hopes to inspire others”. She soon realized that people were craving plants in their space, they just didn’t know how to achieve the look or how to take care of them. She started sharing online as a way to offer up inspiration as well as information. That sharing grew naturally into her now full time business as a plant stylist and main service which she calls, “Interior Plant Concierge”.
So, what are Toronto and area clients typically looking for from a plant stylist? For the most part, Brittany finds that they’re looking to add plants to a “plant-less” space. They usually don’t really know where to start or what types of plants will work in their home. One thing she finds that they are aware of though are the benefits of adding plants to your space. So, this is exactly where Planting Bliss Co. steps in!
