Luxe Launch 2015: Sophisticated LUXE Penthouse


Trina Schmidt Weddings & Special Events and Keith J. Laverty created this gorgeous “Sophisticated LUXE Penthouse” for our Luxe Launch OC at The Colony House. The team used rentals from Revelry Event Designers and Line 204 Events to complete their design. Gorgeous chinaware from Classic Party Rentals and stationery from Li’K Designs  sat upon our Houndstooth Fenton linen and Flint napkins. Thank you Studio EMP for the lovely images. 

We have an exclusive interview with Trina Schmidt and Keith J. Laverty conducted by Rhonda Couchigian of Rayce PR. See below for the full interview and tabletop design.


What was your inspiration?

Our inspiration was the Houndstooth linen and from there it took to a Ralph Lauren  sophisticated penthouse feel.


Tell us about the flowers.

We wanted to keep the flowers simple, classic and elegant. Ralph Lauren is known for using a lot of hydrangeas and garden roses, lilies. It is kept very glam but very compact


Tell us about the table details.

The candlesticks are submerged in gravel and were inspired by the open flame policy. We picked out the tall clear glass cylinders. The gold pillars were found at a local flea market. The urn that the flowers are in was actually imported from Italy. It is a copper based container because we wanted to go with an opulent, regal, gold look. The gold accents and the trim on the chargers gave it that regal sophistication. The mix and match of the china crystal and silver. Classic Party Rentals did our china. Revelry provided our chairs. Our stationery was from Li’K Designs.
