Winter Chic Featured in South Asian Bride Magazine

We had the pleasure to work and collaborate again with Sonia Sharma and Dina Douglass to create a modern take on winter. Put away the ice, crystals, snow and bare branches! Everything that screams winter we took away, creating an interesting challenge for this group of designers.

This look was inspired primarily by some of the most unique and fascinating scenes in the movie Alice and Wonderland more specifically at the White Queen’s castle. Ideas spurred from life size chess pieces and tall domes a top of the castle. These elements became a driving factor for this tabletop design. By combining the distinct carvings of the chess pieces and the inspiration led by the castle and its unique architectural design, we were guided to the main focus for this look, finials. Finials provided just the right amount of height with the extended apexes as well as decorative details which helped emphasize the look.

Other significant details to the look included the addition of greenery to add that pop of color to this all white and mirror design. Individual leaves were adhered to the bases of the finials and hand crafted into greenery-like succulents were place on top of candle holders. Beautiful white phalaenopsis orchids and cattleya orchids were also incorporated into the look.

This table top design is definitely fit for a queen!
