After much anticipation, planning, dreaming and coordination Sérendipité is the proud and humble winner of the first-ever "White Box" Challenge! This event was hosted by ASID Orange County, Stonemill Design Center and Rivera magazine.
A Big THANK YOU to our sponsors and hardworking, super talented craftsmen that artfully brought our Jacqueline Kennedy inspired room to life!
Erickson Wood Works designed and masterfully created a parlor for us with the beautiful coffered ceiling, wainscoting and applied moldings. Don is truly an artist and his ideas always blow me away.
Victor, of California Stone and his team cut slabs of Silestone into 16”x24” bricks and installed them on the back wall.
Chef Lorenzo did an amazing job and made our room extra special with his pastry confections. He filled the "grout" on the Silestone bricks with ribbon frosting and made handmade gold sugar spun towers to adorn each candle on the chandelier to give the room a glowing ambiance. His team did a wonderful job with the bite size chocolate cake topped with habanero caviar and miniature edible roses for the guest to enjoy.
The vintage chaise lounge from 1910 was a flea market find and beautifully re-upholstered by Superb Chair in an exquisite Vervain fabric.
Noreen runs a custom art and frame boutique and graciously sponsored our 48” x 48” beaded mirror.
Richard Marshall Fine Flooring, my favorite hardwood flooring EVER designed a fabulous chevron pattern, dark wood floor that really created a beautiful foundation for our space.
The understated and ever so lovely heirloom, hand-woven rug was loaned to us by Stark Rugs.
Precision Wallcovering did an amazing job applying subtle wallpaper from Harlequin. Can I just say; I love wall covering! This simple accent transforms a space magically.
Again, this experience was certainly challenging however it was so much fun and the end result was much more fabulous than we expected. We met so many wonderful and talented designers and the shared camaraderie throughout the day was delightful.
