Designs by TTOC knows glam, and their gallery at August’s Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta brought plenty of it with Berkeley Hills Country Club. While still making an up-scale statement, Designs by TTOC shifted from their Millennium Chic pink gallery in the January show, to black and gold glam in the August show.

What was your inspiration for this design? The inspiration actually came from the linen we used in the design. I was looking through samples for something to catch my eye, and I came across this beautiful two-tone black and gold linen. If you brushed it one way it was black, if you brushed it another way it was gold. It was a dynamic interest piece that guided the rest of the design.
What color schemes, textures and themes were included in the design? In addition to the sequin linen, we brought in a few different shades of gold to give the design more depth. The flowers added another layer of interest with a mix of high and low arrangements to complement the glam table setting. We used orchids, a variety of roses and hydrangeas.
The design had very bold colors, but still drew you in with details. How did you achieve this? When you are designing with a bold color, you want to bring variations of that color into the decor to balance the hard and soft. For example, when using black, it’s important to have different textures. A mask black is much harder than a matte black. You can see this in our satin black napkins which were a perfect balance of bold color, and light texture.
What major trends are you seeing brides ask for right now? Greenery is still very popular. Although, it’s a common misconception that greenery is less expensive! Designs that incorporate different textures of greenery can be just as costly as blooms. We are also seeing a bigger trend toward head tables and estate tables. They are a great conversation piece and give that wow effect when you walk into the room.
