The Dark Arts

Philippine Tatler Homes - - STYLE -

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.
