Utterly Engaged Design Contest: Bollywood Style

By in Creations

Back in January, I was asked to help Christina Wright of Simply Modern Weddings with some stationery for a tabletop design. The table was entered in the Utterly Engaged (an online wedding magazine) Design Challenge and was featured in the magazine this month. Although we didn’t win, I’m still glad I got to be part of Christina’s team along with Three Petals.

The orange and purple sari-style isn’t something I usually gravitate towards but I tried to infuse some of my aesthetic wherever I could. Utterly Engaged encouraged their participants to incorporate atypical materials in their designs. Our team utilized a lot of metal (custom metal umbrella drum shades, metal spheres, elephant statues) and traditional Indian fabrics. I used pieces of galvanized metal (from Home Depot) as the base for menus with embroidered dupioni silk accents. I also created embroidered place cards in the eggplant, gunmetal, and orange color scheme.

Be sure to check out the whole article for fabulously creative design ideas and a peek at the winners.
