“We were happy here; for a little while.”
Inspired by Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel, this modern take on the film focuses on the ephemeral nature of even the most lasting relationships. Heirloom pieces collected and borrowed are styled with soft florals and fabrics. Vignettes bring together the film’s motifs of frivolity and genuine heart set amongst Raleigh’s Walnut Hill. As if a distant memory our “Agatha” shines in the lifestyle turned bridal session and while posing with the cake modeled after Mendl’s Courtesan au Chocolat, which she made herself. The delectable color palette, ethereal textures and notes of nostalgia shows us all that even though we never have enough time with those we love; it is our duty to make those moments beautiful.
