Bess Wyrick from Celadon & Celery Events styled and designed this stunning photo shoot for photographers at the Styling with Lady Grey Workshop. For the main vignette, she used our reclaimed wood beams with white chiffon draping, wooden beaded chandelier, and the Versailles Upholstered Dining Chairs. The other vignettes included our Garden Jones Sofa and our Shanghai Stand Up Table.

From Bess Wyrick of Celadon & Celery:
Some people rarely leave the city they were born in; they simply spend their entire lives in that city. However, there are others who may be considered lucky because they travel all around the world. I had just gotten back from sailing in the Mediterranean Sea and settled in İstanbul for a few days. I was impressed with the Islamic architecture, the vibrant colors, the fabrics hanging in all the stores and the pink and orange sunsets.
I wanted to feel the Legendary affairs between Sinan the architect and Mihrimah Sultan, the mysterious handprint in Hagia Sophia, and bring in patterns that I saw in the art.
Working with Reverly, we agreed that we had to build a structure to encase the table setting. It was important to not cover the ground or the dirt rather to let the drapes swim in the air and to feel the breeze come off the lake. I wanted to still feel as if I was sitting off the bospherous river.
I took the blues, rose golds, and ivory colors straight out of the mosque and using La Tavola linens was a perfect mixture of color and pattern. Modernizing the look with blue netting placemats, white and gold chargers and blue glass goblets. Rounding the spring look off with local dahlias peonies and Liliacs was magical floral moment for me. Hardly do we ever get to play with such elegance flowers all at once. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I loved styling it.
