Lovingly restored, and artfully designed, the heritage listed and reinvented exclusive event space Guildhall (a long time favourite hidden gem of mine) in the heart of North Fremantle, set the ideal canvas for the long anticipated Olympia Creative Store Launch, on 15th December last year.
Exposed brick, red velvet couches, deep wooden floorboards, and pastel musk pink side tables are details unique to the space, with it's eclectic mix and artfully curated furniture a result of the owners Hamish Fleming & Siobhan Blumanns collaboration with interior designer Gabrielle Scott, and their world travels. With three distinct areas – an open bar space, an intimate lounge and a hidden courtyard that is the perfect location for a dance floor under the stars, Sheridan Tjhung and I transformed the space into an enchanting 'Guildhall Garden' for the intimate celebration.
With a focus on my 'In Full Bloom' Collection, which encapsulates the idea of 'it's whats on the inside that counts' in stationery form, the space was full of grand details and cascading blooms. The deep emerald marble high table tops with gilded edges, custom made for the event space, were set with old worldly crystal and candles, cutlery, sand linen, Olympia leather and personalised 'QUEEN' envelopes as place settings. Guests feasted on the freshest of produce from Propeller, tailored by Head Chef Kurt Sampson, inspired by the flavours of Mediterranean regions, and custom premium cocktails finished with edible florals were mixed behind the iconic arched bar.
It was like welcoming guests into my home for the first time. The space feels so intimate yet grand. You can dress up, yet relax and be completely comfortable in the space.
Cere Trudon's 'Ernesto' with fierce and partisan overtones of leather and tobacco were chosen as the scent for the day in the main dining room, whilst custom Allume Maison, 'Patchouli & Bergamont' lingered though the corridors. It was like welcoming guests into my home for the first time. The space feels so intimate yet grand. You can dress up, yet relax and be completely comfortable in the space. Eden from De Fleur creative was a guest as well as the photographer for the day, and her fly on the wall approach was wonderful, she has such a talent and unique eye for detail.The Olympia Creative Store is your destination for all things creative, inspired by a passion for beautiful design and love of entertaining and experience, dedicated to those who are of the belief that every day of your life is a special occasion, and should be celebrated.
