Berta x Type A Society

Berta x Type A Society

If you haven't had a chance to step inside the Harvard Club, it's exactly like you would imagine. The walls are paneled with a warm, dark wood, there are high ceilings, Persian rugs, stone columns, and classical-looking portraits of old men decorating the walls. A bespectacled man smoking a pipe in a leather lounge chair wouldn't have been out of place, though probably a bit too romantic of an image. We're not time travelling, after all. 

This was to be the backdrop of Berta Bridal's runway show. Berta was showcasing about 20 wedding dresses, the models stood along either side of this long, rectangular room.  

 

I was honored to be asked by Type A Society, a floral and styling company, to help transform two massive fireplaces in the room, making them look like they were right out of A Secret Garden. We were requested to not use any flowers. My goal was to make these fireplaces look overgrown and to make the vines and branches look old and wise, to fit the ambiance of the venue.
