Behind the Design: Designs by TTOC

Designs by TTOC knows glam brides, and they delivered a display with Berkeley Hills Country Club at the August 2017 Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta that was decidedly different from January’s but equally as luxurious. Millennial Pink was everywhere in 2017, and many designers took August’s show as an opportunity to show brides an interpretation of glamour that didn’t focus on a single color family. TTOC and Berkeley Country Club’s answer? Black and gold glam.

Designer Antoinette Smith Jones said that they, like many designers, took their initial cues from a table linen they loved. In this case, it was an ultra-luxurious sequin tablecloth that was black when brushed one way and gold when brushed the other. Various shades of gold in other linens added depth, while a mix of high and low flower arrangements of orchids, roses and hydrangeas gave dimension to the space.

Jones recommends using mixed textures to add visual interest when using a bold color, especially a dark one like the black in TTOC’s design. Satin black napkins popped against the tablecloth because of the texture and sheen.

Jones also says that they are directing brides toward head tables and estate tables as a way to get the biggest bang for their buck. They add a focal point to the space where a designer can focus resources for maximum impact at a lower cost. This strategy allows trends like lush greenery and elaborate tablescapes to be accessible to all brides.
