As an internationally known floral designer and artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris, Jeff Leatham knows a thing or two about making a room look good. Nate talks to Jeff about his career in floral design and the key to arranging flowers beautifully.
With so much experience under his belt, including a part in the planning and design of Eva Longoria's wedding to NBA star Tony Parker, the clients who hire him trust him to plan what will look best for their event or in their homes.

"I think that's the most important thing as an artist is to have that trust level from your clients."
Whether he's designing flowers or just living his daily life, Jeff says it's key to be passionate about what you're doing. "You have to have the passion behind it and you have to surround yourself with people who believe in you and you have to believe in yourself," he says.
