Impeccable design doesn’t just come from the hands of architects and interior designers, just ask the team at The Design Depot who created a flawless, Palm Springs-inspired wedding for a dream client earlier this year.
Housed in Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens, for one day only the team – led by senior stylist, Steph Hagan – transformed the garden setting into a black-and-white mod sanctuary fit for a 1960s Hollywood star.
Taking its design aesthetic from the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica, The Design Depot thought of every detail – from the custom-designed black banquettes, black-and-white tablecloths and perfect furniture, even down to a custom-designed bar lined with family photographs to bring a personal touch.
Leaving nothing to chance, the floral Baby’s Breath (Gypsophilaor) for the Chuppah was imported from Kenya by Flowers Vasette and was complemented by Easter Daisy along the aisles.
After the ceremony, guests dined among mid-century perfection in the custom-designed marquees located within the client’s property. Black and white tiled flooring set the scene for the stunning black feature walls, white lighting and black-and-white furniture with frosty blue accents.
It’s certainly a far cry from the industrial craze gripping Melbourne’s design set of late, and a welcome reminder that good design can take you to any part of the world, even if just for the day.
