We absolutely loved working on this industry event hosted by our talented friends at Bespoke Events. The decedent ‘Paradiso E Inferno’ theme was dreamt up by Bespoke Directors Daniel and Sam, inspired by the latest, Sicilian-based season of White Lotus. Together with Bespoke event designer, Charlotte, we created two distinct experiences for the event. Firstly, taking inspiration for the ‘heaven’ theme from the mesmerizing White Lotus ‘wallpaper’ opening credits, with artwork based on the trompe l’oeil frescoes at the real-life Villa Tasca in Palermo, featured in the show.
We wanted to guests to feel as though they had been transported into an Italian garden; designing and creating installations that would complement Bespoke’s incredible scenic work, with florals that appeared to sprawl and grow throughout the room. Masses of British foliage formed an organic, garden-style base, filled with an array of seasonal blooms in warm rust, terracotta, sand, and coral hues – pops of cerise, lilac, and pastel blues added depth and interest throughout the designs.
Descending to the ‘depths of hell’ below we faded seamlessly from one look to the next with an ombre-style staircase that transitioned into an altogether more decedent theme; bold, rich ruby reds dominated here, with black vessels and structural florals designs adding height and drama throughout the space from the DJ booth through to the powder rooms.
It was an absolute pleasure to create two very different looks for this incredibly unique and creative industry event – we loved every minute and were absolutely thrilled to join the party too, it was really lovely to see all our industry friends for the evening.
