Currently in fashion statement pieces are "very in" at the moment, from jewellery, to shoes & bridal wear, statements are being MADE HUNNI! Whether this includes sequins, large feature pendants or carefully constructed hair do's, statement items & styles are appearing everywhere and this should be remembered when it comes to your Event Design.
My personal love for staircase garlands & Fireplace statement pieces is forever becoming an endless love affair. These statement pieces are a look that can be altered & crafted around the season, traditionally they are seen as being A/W looks, however I would highly disagree, as they look truly amazing come rain, snow, wind or heat waves!
If one of the Ginger&Lime Clients were to ask my colleague or myself how to create an instant statement at their chosen venue, before we could think we would most likely scream GARLAND! (Of course, during a consultation the screaming would be contained).
The photographs attached, are from a piece I recently worked on for a boutique country manor house hotel. Prior to installing our statement piece the fireplace looked wonderful, however the lobby felt a tad gloomy and required something to uplift the space. I chose seasonal colours (Reds, Oranges, Ever Green & Berries) & based the size of the statement piece on the proportions of the overall fireplace.
The piece was a mashup of a mantel place piece and side garlands, a combination that provided a truly indulgent look. From the feedback Ginger&Lime received, practically everyone that entered the premises had a moment of jaw droppingness (OK, I made up a word but I don't care), which of course was my aim when creating the look, after all My Love for a Statement Piece has originated from the concept that most drama queens have.... AN ENTRANCE DARLING!
Making any statement whether this being fashion, interior design or event design there can be a boarder line, which you do not want to cross... OVER KILL!
Be adventurous but reign-in timeless class for the finishing touches, there are two types of statement entrances...
1/ Classy, elegant & beautiful (Angelina Jolie Style ;) )
2/ Over the top, tacky & just plain sl**ty (you know, Kesha style!).
