Rose Red and Lavender is a full service floral and event studio founded in 2008 by Kimberly Sevilla: scientist, Club Kid, designer, project manager, florist, creative director.

She  has a unique relationship with the natural world and is extremely resourceful and able to find innovative ways to repurpose objects and natural elements; her mom describes it as “being artsy” and “different”.
 

To elaborate, Kimberly’s early roots are in Chemistry and Biology, and worked creating GMOs for the USDA in West Virginia. Fascinating as it may have been, Kimberly left for New York City to pursue her dream of being a Club Kid. Her passion was fashion, art and design.

In her ascent to Club Kid fame, she inadvertently became an international designer  creating 3D environmental projections with virtual imaging for events, museums and retail displays and later, innovative techniques for retail displays and event design production.  Her clients included Chanel, Burberry, Cartier, Cole Haan, Barney’s, Calvin Klein, the Smithsonian Museum, the American Museum of Natural History, the City of Shanghai, Deutsche Bank, Reebok, Pepsi, Coty, MAC Cosmetics, and the NFL. To stay grounded, she grew elaborate organic gardens and made furniture in her upstate wood-working studio.

After many years of traveling the world creating elaborate events and displays, Kimberly decided it was time to get back to her roots of working with plants and flowers, but the un-engineered kind, in concrete clad, New York City. Thus Rose Red & Lavender came to be, a sweet, little plant and flower shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

She fell in love with the personal aspects of events and weddings. Since then Rose Red & Lavender has moved and grown to be a premier Event Design and Production house located in Industry City. Her work has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, The Wall Street Journal, Real Simple, Vogue Magazine, Carats and Cake, Style Me Pretty, and Biz Bash Magazine. 

When not scheming her next production, Kimberly enjoys spending time with her family: camping, hiking, and canoeing.
