MAKING SPIRITS BRIGHT
A big part of the public relations life is event organization – from planning to attending, from prepping our clients to coordinating décor and catering, Images & Details loves and excels at making sure everything is perfect. We’ve been busy this season at a number of events that gave us the opportunity to showcase our expertise to the design world.
At High Point Market, our client Vispring hosted “Bedtime Stories,” a brunch event at which we challenged five of our favorite design teams to create bedside table vignettes that illustrated a beloved book. We knew we were in for an exciting time when Robin Baron called and asked, “Could we do Fifty Shades of Grey?” Robin and her team delivered with a fabulous monochromatic color scheme compete with blood red flowers and a smattering of scattered lingerie. Robert Leleux and Shaun Smith recreated “The Ugly Duckling,” complete with two life-sized faux swans, and Anne Rue evoked all the emotions with her incredible recreation of the timeless “Goodnight Moon.” Our own Jonathan Savage took the challenge to a darker place, reinterpreting “The Nightmare Before Christmas” using black and white and a skull motif, while Rivers Spencer chose the Princess and the Pea, which is really rather apt for a Vispring-hosted party, given their mattress-making craft!
Each vignette dazzled and excited us, but as with every party, it was the guests who provided the essential element to make the event fun and successful. Thank you to everyone who attended and made it such a lovely morning!
High Point Market complete, we returned to Connecticut for our client Wakefield Design Center’s twice-yearly To the Trade Day. We’ve had some outstanding guests in the past … but we have to say this line-up left even us a little star-struck. Starting off, Eddie Ross, who has just launched his new book Modern Mix to wonderful response, shared his tips and tricks for sourcing chic and accessible finds that reflect your own personality in your home. Long-time Images & Details friend Julia Buckingham then introduced us to her philosophy of Modernique, a way of life influenced by her own personal journey. Next, the inimitable Robert Couturier participated in a Q&A with New England Home editor-in-chief Kyle Hoepner, discussing the art of designing exquisite paradises for the cultural and intellectual elite. Finally, the lovely and engaging Thom Filicia had a tete-a-tete with Michael Devine, premiering new furniture and artwork from the Thom Filicia Home Collection.
We love helping host the To the Trade Day; while the reach of the interiors community is global, this event allows us to bring the very best of the world of design right here to Connecticut. Again, thank you to our participants and to those who attended.
We at Images & Details wish for you a happy holiday season with many happy and successful events, and look forward to seeing you in 2016!
