Urban Sophisticate Party By Aaron Hartselle & Bess Friday

Any party that includes a zebra rug, ghost chairs and disco balls is a party we want to be attending! The second we caught a glimpse of this gorgeous soirée—thrown by the very talented Aaron Hartselle & Bess Friday—we eagerly took notes for our next sparkly shindig!

From Aaron: “An amazing collaboration with the uber-talented Bess Friday, this shoot is meant to be a juxtaposition of the urban and the urbane. The warehouse space has amazing natural light, providing an ethereal quality that inspired the muted color palette. The rough wood floors provided the perfect canvas for what evolved into a glam, flower-rich table setting.

I’m a huge fan of disco balls and love any opportunity to incorporate them into a design. We hung them in a cluster to create a focal point over the table. We continued the mirror motif onto the tabletop, metallic pillows and side trays.

A lush floral collection centers the table (more flowers, please!) and adds a pop of color. I used stately wingbacks and tufted ottomans to ground the table, as well as Casper chairs for a touch of modernity. The zebra rug adds a little extra zing!”
