Forêt Design Studio is a floral & event styling company based in Somerville, MA. Owner and Creative Director, Erin Heath, started her journey of sculpting natural materials at an early age, building forts in the woods of Northern Vermont. After graduating with a degree in painting and sculpture, she started her professional career by creating visual displays at Anthropologie.

Erin considers herself a "concept-driven" designer creating unique inspired events that are both cohesive and yet imaginative. Her process starts with a feeling or mood— from there, she gathers and collects inspiration to build a concept that makes your dream into a reality. As a self-taught florist, she combines her strong academic foundation of color theory with her love of the natural world. She is drawn to the natural movement and seasonality of flowers, fruiting branches, ripening berries and turning acorns. Each year, she works with local growers to choose the coming season's bounty thus creating true "seed to table" arrangements.

Forêt has written for Design* Sponge and clients include IDEO, MIT Media Lab, Marc Jacobs, Style Me Pretty, BHLDN, and Anthropologie. Her work been featured in GeraldineMagnolia Rouge, Domino Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Boston Wedding Magazine, Boston Home Magazine, and Design New England.
