How do you plan a party for 1,000 guests in less than a week? If you’re VIP event planner Catriona Smart, and the client is Drake, you take a deep breath, make some calls and come up with something never seen before.

Catriona says the interior design is a combination of everything she loves, which includes a statement-making fireplace and vintage glam accents. Click through for a look inside.
