Easy apartment therapy: Peonies

by Sarah Z. Wexler (Brooklyn)

If you ask me, there’s nothing prettier or more fragrant than peonies—and lucky for us, they’re in season! I snipped this one from my mom’s garden and the scent is already filling up my living room. Buy a bouquet or even a single stem to transform your home (and when they’re not in season, try Thierry Mugler’s Angel Peony perfume, which comes seriously close to the real thing).
