Creative visions from shapes and contrasts



In the premises of an old 19th century warehouse, stylists and photographers Mónika and Aroa of Dos Santas found the perfect ambience for their concept of contrasts. Stylish elegance and perfectly formed aesthetics meet in a minimalist setting and set new standards.

Under soft drapery and suffused with dreamy light, a remarkable table design was created to encourage, inspire and uplift. Dreamy color accents and textures combined with stone and marble and finished with black candles and white hydrangeas make this poetic editorial a stunning work of art.

From Dos Santas: “Originally we were inspired by different artists and their hanging fabric installations, but then everything changed. Obviously the room was a big influence for the final look. We have always talked about the concept of contrast. After visiting the place for the first time, we knew that we wanted to soften this empty, cold space and give it an elegant look. Everything escalated from there.

Location: Colonia Rusiñol (Barcelona) An old yarn and fabric factory building from 1857.

Color palette: We wanted to replicate all the hues of the dilapidated building, so we opted for black, taupe, white and beige with some minimal touches of gold. Basically the natural colors of the walls and materials we wanted to use.

Floral details: white fresh hydrangeas, early gray roses, bicolor eustoma, black twigs and native edible mushrooms called “girgolas”
Bouquet: Lunaria, early gray roses, white phalanopsis, aspargus, tatarica and black twigs.

Tablescape / decoration details: our idea was to create contrast in every aspect. The hard and cold materials like stone, marble and crystals contrast with the soft organic lines and shapes of fresh local mushrooms and flowers. We chose organically shaped beige vases for the flowers and a very muted palette for the dinnerware, and to contrast, we chose black flatware and candles. Also, black branches to contrast the delicacy of white hydrangeas. On top of the table we made a fabric installation. The softness of the fabric shapes contrasts with the straight lines of the venue. Everything in white and shades.

Tips for brides who want to choose this look for their wedding: Our advice would be to always choose vendors they trust and who have a similar style. This setting is perfect for fall or winter weddings and can be scaled to a larger size.”
