This month's mood board is brought to you by Starling on Bond, our event design and planning team who creates experiences that are both beautiful and purposeful. Follow along with us over the next few posts as we chat with Starling's Creative Director Corrin Acome and Lead Planner Ashley Chamblin on tips for throwing a cozy winter dinner party in your (teeny-tiny!) NYC apartment.
First things first: figure out your look and feel. "Searching the markets for both produce and flowers that are in-season is the simplest way to decide on a color palette, menu and theme for your event," says Corrin. "Layering fabrics, rugs, pillows and textures- from furs to wool plaid blankets - mimics how we wrap ourselves up during this season," she adds. "Not only will the decor warm up your space, but it'll also keep your guests warm and cozy."
And be sure to mix in elements of gold and brass. "Metal's going to bring a bit of shine and glam in to offset all of those soft layered textures."
See more of Corrin's ideas below, and check back later in the week for Ashley's tips on making your space feel bigger.
