D x D Media Preview

As you may know, I have been busy planning a table for this year's Dinner by Design and IDSwest with my partner in crime, Brittany Wong - Principal and Owner of Bash & Fete. We have been very blessed to have been joined by an amazingly talented team of local artists and designers who are helping bring our vision come to life.  With partners like Katherine Gordon , Matthew Mate , Jeff Martin Joinery and Lock & Mortice, I have no doubt that our design will be a huge success. While our concept and design may be top secret, we were asked to put together a mini-tablescape for the IDSwest media preview party which took place at Livingspace last month that I have been dying to share.  I always start my creative process with the creation of a mood board (pictured below) and Brittany perfectly captured the essence of our concept "Rose on the Roof": Summer season is upon us and there's no better place to be than on a rooftop sipping rosé. Inspired by a bright and punchy sunset palette, our table is an hommage to all that is fun and fancy for the swankiest of summer soirées.  See how our concept came to life with the beautiful pictures taken by Ema Peter Photography. My goal for the table was to have something fresh, fun, interesting and just a little bit glamorous. Bringing in the seasonal pinks and oranges (with peonies and apricots) made this feel truly summery and unique but I wanted to balance out some of the femininity.  Incorporating graphic black and white into the design with the Arper chairs, Hermes plates and the masculine texture of the Horn candle holders helped to bring that splash of edge I was looking for. Chairs, tables, area rug & vase provided by Livingspace, Flowers by The Flower Factory,  plates & place settings from Atkinsons, candlesticks from  Provide & treats from Culinary Capers.
