A glorious day of flora and reverie at the historic Linden Place mansion in Bristol, RI.
This styled shoot was imagined as a graceful garden soiree with hints of whimsical details to keep the vibe lighthearted. Linden Place is a Federal-style mansion with architectural elegance that lends itself to a grandiose décor aesthetic. The magnificent archways that carry your from room to room are like portals to the past, each one telling a different story. The vision was to blur the lines between the past and the present with modern-glam décor and an explosion of lush flora. A spectrum of pink hues and creamy white kept the color palette clean, yet captivating. Every floral display designed by Sayles Livingston Design made a statement. “I wanted this to feel luxurious and abundant. We used a mix of hydrangea, roses, ranunculus, snapdragons, snowberry, and tulips to frame the grand entrance,” Sayles described. The floral trend was carried out through every detail from the fashion to the stationery – even the food!
