Summer is officially here! Very hard to contain my excitement, I'm a big fan of the change in seasons, it always offers a fresh perspective for the coming months. Whether it be personal goals, new adventures, a new wardrobe, or just the feeling of "new" 4 times a year - it's a simple thing in life that makes me happy. Since we're officially in the summer solstice, I wanted to brighten up your day with inspiration around one of my favorite new design trends - color blocking. Color blocking can be applied to just about anything in the design world - fashion, home decor, stationery, jewelry - so why not in a modern soiree as well? What a current style to outfit your bridesmaids in or design stationery after? Go with a more subtle approach through your accessories or the floral design you choose - but either way its a lively, bold, and stylish statement on your big day. Enjoy these gorgeous hues and your first weekend of summer!
Do pastel colors and Easter go hand in hand for you like they do for me? I'm a big fan of the bold, bright color trend this season, but have an equal respect for soft, feminine pastels. With Easter coming up this weekend, it couldn't be more perfect timing to give some love to pastels. Have you completely crossed over to the bold side or do you still have a long lost love for these soft hued babies?
I've been noticing a lot of floral print on the fashion runways lately, and it's made it's way to the wedding runways too. I'm sure you've seen the hand painted cakes that are all the rage right now. Well I've got some other hand painted foral decor just for you. From a gorgeous vintage garden dress to a painted floral runner and to-go coffee cup favors, there are so many ways to incorporate florals into your wedding without looking dated. Once you've finished drooling over this board, be sure to head over to Maggie Austin Cake for more genius wedding cake inspiration.
Joie de Vivre!
Christy and I are working on a fun project over the next couple of months, and I've been gathering inspiration to come up with the overall design concept. So here's a sneak peak of what's to come! It's all the way preppy, bright and gingham. Can you guess what we are working on?
