The Dark Arts
What better reason than a special dinner gathering to release your inner production designer and set an evocative, cinematic scene for your guests. Flowers are present everywhere: in vases and unusual vessels; laid out underneath a simple elevated glass top structure; as a moulded jelly centrepiece (for display or eating); and pressed flat, painted white, and framed as customised artworks. The moody colour palette and elements such as taxidermy, vintage scientific instruments, and Baroque candle sticks (rendered modern in matt black) are tempered by the natural warmth of wood and pops of jewel-like coloured glassware. The inky distressed feature wall serves as both an abstract focal point and dramatic backdrop.
