Lauryl Lane has spent the past fifteen years immersed in her own beautiful world of flowers and botanical elements. The magic Lauryl creates for weddings and occasions has led to clients retaining her services not only on the west coast, but across the country in places such as Aspen, Colorado; Austin, Texas and New York City.
Lauryl was classically trained as a theatrical actor in London and Stratford-Upon-Avon before finishing her bachelor of arts degree at The University of Tulsa. She began working part-time in a flower shop during college and quickly discovered her love of flowers. She trained in floral design while continuing her theatre studies, and upon graduation, moved to pursue a career in Los Angeles. Within months of arriving in Hollywood she found herself chatting with George Clooney while designing a centerpiece that would sit in front of him at luncheon... and she never looked back. After years of working for some of the most storied floral and event designers in the industry and managing a high-end floral and landscape design studio in West Hollywood, Lauryl decided to strike out on her own in late 2007.
A designer and producer of full-scale events, Lauryl recently planned, designed and floralized the Los Angeles nuptials of pop star Eden xo and urban artist Ryan Wilson. Her floral designs have graced the homes of Hollywood icons as diverse as Elizabeth Taylor, Baz Luhrmann and Rachel Zoe. As an editorial stylist, Lauryl (with her brother-in-law) coined the term "botanical stylist" to describe the heavy botanical influence she brings to set decorating and prop styling for still photography and film.
She has designed for publications such as In Style, Lucky and Elle magazines, and her wedding work has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, Cosmopolitan, Brides, Glamour, Ceremony and Grace Ormond Wedding Style, among many others.
Lauryl's styling and florals have represented non-profit organizations such as The Pasadena Playhouse and The Weingart Center, corporate powerhouses such as Direct TV, and global luxury brands such as Stuart Weitzman and Calvin Klein.
Lauryl is considered an "industry expert," and as such, she is often booked to speak at wedding and event conferences and other platforms. She also teaches a range of design workshops from her studio and for other entities.
Lauryl works from a charming brick warehouse studio in Culver City, which she shares with the team at Borrowed Blu. She resides in Los Angeles with her entertainment publicist husband Samuel Threadgill, and their identical twin two-year-old daughters, Oakleigh and Brioney.
