A Flower Grows on the UES


At The Kent, the great room in each home serves as a sunlit canvas where residents can express themselves and create a comfortable, rejuvenating space. As spring blooms across New York City, residents of these Upper East Side condominiums are flocking to flower shops to fill their home’s central room with colorful flourishes that keep the space fresh. Here are a few spots new residents will want to check out when decorating their new Upper East Side home.

Residents looking to brighten up their great room with seasonal sprays of sunny yellow should head to Urban Garden Center, NYC’s one-stop shop for everything floral. For more than 57 years, Manhattanites have relied on Urban Garden Center’s 20,000-square-foot outdoor market for all of their gardening needs, including locally grown plants, pots and tools, and useful tips from the shop’s expert staff. Residents of The Kent will love the variety of flowers and seeds available to help them bring vibrant touches of greenery and pops of color into these elegant homes.

For a quick floral fix, try one of the premade arrangements from Citywide Florist. These experts have an arrangement for every occasion and will even whip up a custom display for customers who have their own designs in mind. Best of all, they deliver, making it easy to brighten up a great room with a lively floral bouquet. If Citywide doesn’t have quite the right arrangement, check out Eva’s Garden Florist, which has been the Upper East Side’s florist of choice for everything from weddings to birthdays to graduations since 1978.

Of course, when decorating a space as large and inviting as one of the great rooms at The Kent, residents will want to include a few personal touches. That’s where EarthworksNYC comes in. This pottery studio offers classes and bench time for potters of all skill levels, and their students often leave an introductory course with clay-caked hands and the pottery bug. In addition to all the instruction and tools that new potters need to turn out impressive custom-made pots, EarthworksNYC is home to a pottery gallery, where local crafters display their wares. Whether they’re making their own pottery or just looking for that one-of-a-kind piece in the gallery, EarthworksNYC is a great place for residents of The Kent to make or find unique pots to fill with flowers.

With corner exposures and large sun-welcoming windows, the great rooms at The Kent are waiting to be turned into verdant escapes from Manhattan’s bustling urban environment. So, head over to the website to check availability and begin planning your floral fantasy during the virtual tour!
