For over a decade, Kehoe Designs has taken part by decking this world class hotel’s grand spaces from top-to-bottom with luxe adornment and chic holiday style. In today’s feature, we invite you to get in the spirit with our top five reasons to celebrate the holidays at The Peninsula Chicago!
With the transition to a new season, there is always a bit of extra excitement in the air. Fall’s crisp air and vibrant burst of autumn hues unleash a marked shift in our creative minds as well as in our daily lives. Today, we depart from the event decor world to explore ‘a gentleman’s guide to fall’ through the lens of our Kehoe Designs‘ tastemakers. A special treat to the fellas, we focus on a mélange of autumnal trends, activities, and ‘must-haves’ that inspire us, both in our artistry as event designers and in our individual style.
As the Kehoe Designs studios bustle with a spectacular line-up of summer weddings, the Creative Design team is is busy crafting gorgeous inspiration boards for our Fall and Winter brides. In today’s issue, we explore two of the many “oh-so-fabulous” looks curated by Creative Director, Bridget Frizzie. With her finger on the pulse of color and design trends, she and her team draw on the most exquisite happenings in the world of high style, blending it with classic bridal beauty and a signature Kehoe Designs point of view. We invite you to enjoy this special sneak peak of 2014 Fall & Winter wedding inspiration!
With the fantastical, imaginative environments of smash hits like “Game of Thrones” and “Frozen,” it isn’t surprising that we see these themes recur in many forms of contemporary design. In event decor, given the extreme nature of both fire and ice, much drama can be infused in focusing on just one or presenting them as a strong, forceful duo. Today, we share how the creative minds at Kehoe Designs have translated these themes within the magical world of event design.
As our company grows, evolves and captures greater creative talent, we see an emerging world of incredibly awe-inspiring art & graphics driven event design. At Kehoe Designs, weddings have typically taken center stage but starting today, we’ve launched a platform specifically meant to feature the ingenuity and innovation of our youth parties who truly take it to the #NXTLVL.
From the smell of fresh pine to the twinkling of lights, this time of year sparks wonder and excitement within us all. For the Kehoe Designs team, part of the season’s magic is bringing holiday splendor to Chicago’s finest hotels and festive flair to the Windy City LIVE’s studios. It is in this spirit of merriment and “signature sparkle” that we share with you a few Kehoe Designs winter wonderlands, offering a warm and cozy welcome to the guests (and audience) of our spectacular city.
With 20 years experience living and breathing the art of style, Bridget Frizzie’s curiosity and passion for high design keep her on the cutting edge of emerging trends. As one of the few certified color specialists in the industry, she thinks far beyond aesthetic, “painting” environments with the intrinsic energy of particular shades and hues. Here she shares the story behind 2013’s color trends and offers a sneak peak of the color forecast for 2014!
