Style Edit: The Modern Edge

March 27, 2020

How amazing has the sunshine been this week?! With the clocks set to go forward on Saturday evening, we can start to think about the warm summer evenings on the horizon which I know will be a good boost for us all right now. In our industry we’re very aware of seasons and the feelings that they emulate so when we get asked to style showcases for wedding and event venues across the UK, this is a big influencing factor in the design brief.

Complementing the venue’s natural aesthetics and surroundings is another priority. Enhance and coordinate for the best results.

At the end of February our Harrogate and North Yorkshire stylist, Amy had the pleasure of collaborating with Victoria Ivy Floral Design at the stunning Goldsborough Hall for a styled open day. They created a fabulous modern, contemporary wedding breakfast design that worked perfectly with the room with colours and textures that literally brought the spring time indoors!

Here’s what Amy had to say about the ideas behind the look and how it all came together on the day:

“Both Victoria and I were honoured to have been asked to style the Orangery at Goldsborough Hall, which is a beautiful addition to the hall featuring exposed brick walls and lots of natural light. We felt that the room could be complemented with a modern style and I would say that I take a lot of styling inspiration from Australia, they have really perfected this look which I naturally gravitate towards…

…With the Orangery facing the beautiful gardens at Goldsborough Hall we wanted to bring the spring into the room and so Victoria created several complementing floral designs with the most beautiful hues of blues, purples and pinks. To modernise the design I introduced black accessories, luxurious linens in stone and dusty blue and then very sleek, modern black framed lanterns.

Each table was styled slightly differently but all complimenting one another, I would say that this is fast becoming a new trend for our 2020/2021 clients. Both Victoria and I were thrilled with the overall look and we had many compliments throughout the day, we are very grateful to Goldsborough Hall for giving us this opportunity.”
