We asked Carmen of Carmen Rocha Design and Paperie five questions in five minutes:
What is your favourite after five drink?
French Martini Cocktail. No drink is more emblematic of female sophistication than a french martini traditionally made from vodka, Chambord and pineapple juice.
Your favourite weekend getaway?
Porepunkah on the Great Alpine Road is a beautiful town to enjoy the fresh mountain air, scenic ranges and breathtaking wineries. It is a gastronome’s dream come true with many restaurants, award winning wineries and seasonal local produce.
Although this isn’t a local restaurant, the Monsieur Bleu at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris is my favourite. The music, illumination, waiters, service and food are formidable. You really come here for that true Parisian sport: people watching.
What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?
Traditional crêpes with sugar and lemon and strong a latte.
Your favourite wedding story?
I have had the honour of designing my friend’s wedding stationery suite and the reception was held at Sumac along Central Pier Docklands. As the reception was drawing to a close, the guests were asked to step outside along the Pier and were puzzled by this request. Instead of farewelling the guests in the traditional way, the couple were waving to the guests and cruised along the river in a unique Venetian style gondola.
