Comfortable woven furniture is angled to encourage conversation and allow guests to enjoy a stone fireplace and wooded view on this elegant patio. A stone bench takes the place of a traditional hearth, offering additional seating for guests. Soft pillows add comfort, and tall candelabras serve as "walls" to further define the space.
A sultry game room was created in a bonus space above a garage on this lavish estate. A unique sitting area was formed by pairing a velvet patterned chaise longue, hand-carved pedestal side table and damask upholstered side chair. A hand-painted silk Fortuny floor lamp and mica-shaded tall candelabra provide the soft lighting needed during intimate conversations.
“An outdoor reception doesn't mean you have to let go of elegant elements. We used a mix of bistro lights and candelabras, as well as hurricane lamps and smaller votive candles for this garden dinner. The lighting only became stronger after sunset, creating a truly elegant mix of candle light, bistro lights and the natural light of the moon and stars." - Planner Adam Donovan-Groves, of Donovan-Groves Events. Audrey Isaac, of 100 Candles, adds, "Tall, elegant candelabras towering over floral centerpieces create a dynamic feel to a table. Match the candlesticks to the floral vessel for maximum impact!"
