Workshop 2016

Our stylist, Jesse Tombs' vision behind our 2016 Workshop — Two affluent young 1970's Parisians, with a family home in Burgundy, take over the Chateau De Varennes while their parents are on holiday in Morocco. We wanted the look to feel young, exuberant, fresh, ethnic inspired and luxe. There is so much white and cream and pink in the wedding industry so we challenged myself to push the boundaries of color and work with colors that we hadn't used before. 

The mustard color of the dinning table linens was inspired by the location of Burgundy, which is a huge exporter of mustard from Dijon, a nearby region in France. We mixed wooden and silver flatware with brightly colored raw linen napkins to add texture and depth to the design. Olive colored cow hide was used for placecards and paired with acrylic tortoiseshell and then etched with each guests name. The combination reads current, but individually these pieces are so 70's inspired, but somehow it all  works together. As seen in Flutter Magazine, and on Style Me Pretty.
