In March of 2016 b merry events had the unique experience of collaborating with a crazy creative group of wedding professionals to design and engineer the Indian-Fusion room for BESWOON.

“Indian-Fusion” leaves the door wide open to interpretation when it comes to design …

The expected vision is bight colors, loads of draping fabric, and sparkle everywhere. Taking inspiration from a recent trip to Pierre’s Restaurant – a two-story plantation house in the Florida Keys – the room design went in a different direction.

Instead of Bollywood, think India Jones.

Think Gandhi and not gold elephants.

Imagine vacationing on in a high-end boutique hotel on the shore of India. Everything is airy and white, peppered with carved dark wood, and splashed with thoughtful uses of color – mainly from flowers and fibers. There is lots of texture. The lighting is ambient with the use of modern fixtures. There is amazing bright food served family style to encourage the cultural communal living. Styling is simple with lots of green plants and reflective fire. A few features of concrete gives a subtle nod to the sandstone buildings of India of old. There are some Moroccan and Persian influences.

It is modern. It is simple. It is light. It is comfortable. It is where you want to hang out all night, every night.

I could not be more proud of the outcome of the room or the Team of talents who made it happen. Thank you for believing in the vision, your inspiration, your energy, and for going above and beyond.
