A Touch of Tuscany

“A visit to Italy inspired me to create this ‘Touch of Tuscany’ look for the 2018 PapaKåta Autumn Open Weekend. I’ve added teal, a colour used in many ways, to give the look depth and decadence. I planned a stunning wedding this year in a PapaKåta Sperry Tent, working with the couple to create an elegant yet bold theme. We used teal in the stationery, copper in the tableware and paired it with tonal greys in the candles. The overall look was fresh and modern yet warm and inviting.

Summer morning sun was at the forefront of their minds for this design concept. Creating a light, bright and airy feel is key to styling a spring/summer tipi wedding, and their design inspiration oozes style, luxury and sophistication.

Think bringing the outside in, with floral installations creating the most incredible alternative world within PapaKåta’s stunning tents.
