Carlton House Terrace, London
intimate London dinner party
Set in Carlton House Terrace’s Grade I listed Georgian Townhouse, the intimate dinner party décor was designed to be elegant and understated allowing the beauty of the central carved fireplace, vast mirrors, and ornate walls to shine through. Working with the tones of the room, a base palette of white was chosen, along with accents of burgundy and red to add a pop of refined colour. Whilst designing this tablescape close attention was paid to the details. I wanted to add a natural element, which was achieved by placing freshly carved figs alongside the menus and place names and by styling bowls of seasonal berries in antique glass bowls. The table created a relaxed ambience – the low centrepieces meant guests could laugh, joke and chat easily but it still felt elegant and luxurious.
